The GSMA has announced new details on its 2017 GSMA Mobile 360 Series. Describing it in a statement, the organization says it’s “a regional thought leadership conference series” aimed at mobile industry executives and government and regulatory body representatives.
There are eight series conferences in total. Seven have a regional focus, aimed respectively at Africa, Europe, the Middle East, India, Latin America, and the new additions of North Asia and West Africa. The eighth event, which will take place in The Hague, is dedicated to the topic of Privacy & Security. Events will run throughout the year, with the West Africa conference kicking things off on April 27th and North Asia capping the series on November 28th to 29th.
The GSMA has also revealed an extensive lineup of speakers for the Hague event, including names like Ericsson Group Function Strategy & Technology Director Mats Nilsson, Huawei Chief Privacy Officer John Howie, Intel Security EMEA CTO Raj Samani, and many more. Major topics will include privacy, security, and the Internet of Things.
The announcements further illustrate the busy year that the GSMA has planned, arriving just after the organizations announced some preliminary details of its first-ever Mobile World Congress Americas event, and just ahead of the year’s global Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where Mobile ID World will be reporting live from February 27th to March 2nd.
