MEF CONNECTS Wholesale 2022 will be a 2-day online event bringing together stakeholders from across the industry – analysts, representatives from other trade organisations, mobile operators, content providers, messaging companies and so many others. Topics under discussion will range from identifying new revenue streams and growth drivers for Wholesale, achieving efficiencies, sustainability, new commercial models, automation, the emergence of new industry segments, Mobile IoT and more. Of course it’ll provide ample opportunities to tackle the traditional areas of Business Messaging, Roaming and Voice. We couldn’t miss those out…
In 2021, the event met a resounding success with 95 speakers and over 700 participants, a 20% increase on 2020 when the event was first introduced. We look forward to reprising this experience and registration will be opening up very soon!
