In a nutshell, World Telemedia is the only show of its kind in the world. It is the only place where you can connect the dots between carrier billing, value added services, affiliate marketing and even now e-commerce.
For those looking to penetrate new markets and to understand the markets they are in, there are in-depth country up-date sessions run by Empello, which cover off all the newbie and hardened delegate needs to know.
For those looking to bill for services – and to aggregate and package up services and billing – the how floor is teeming with all the expert partners you could wish to work with.
For those looking to learn more about how to develop and create services, as well as where the market is heading and what that might mean, the conference spotlight sessions are the place to be: with the leading players and analyst is talking straight and ready to answer all your burning questions.
But there is way more to World Telemedia than the standard conference and exhibition format: it’s not in Marbella for nothing… networking is the key to what makes this event tick.
Around the pool, down by the harbour, in the airy, cool lobbies of the H10 hotel: this is where all that you can see, hear and learn in the conference and exhibition is put into practice. Here are where the movers and shakers make the deals and partnerships that shape the next generation of services across Europe and the World.
And it is all done with a cocktail in one hand and a smartphone in the other. Who said business had to be dull?
This year’s event is bigger than ever and features some top names from not only the established Telemedia world, but also from the mainstream – even Google is taking part, a clear marker of just how far this show has come over the past 25 years.
So if you are already booked, make sure you bring your shorts, your sunnies and some paracetamol, if you aren’t, then book now – there are still a few places left and you don’t want to get left behind! See you in Marbella.
