MEF’s annual Global Consumer Trust Survey in association with AVG Technologies studies the behaviours and attitudes of over 5000 consumers in eight countries including both developed and growth markets. Its analysis identifies key market trends and helps its members better understand the mindset of the end user and, crucially, how this is likely to impact the mobile ecosystem.
Every year at MWC in Barcelona, we visit as many of our exhibiting members as possible to catch up with their latest news and announcements, get their views on how the mobile ecosystem has evolved in the past year, and where they see it going in the future.
