The GSMA Mobile 360 Series – Eurasia conference, a regional event run by GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications Association), will be held in Moscow later this year.
It follows last year’s successful debut, in the same city, which gathered more than 600 attendees from 21 countries –more than half of whom (52 per cent) were director-level or above.
The Russian Convention Bureau which provided the proposal for venues, and organized an inspection visit for representatives of the international association, led the bid for the event.
This year’s conference and exhibition, in October, will bring together 600 policymakers, regulatory authorities, international organisations, Mobile Network Operators, mobile technology solution providers and broader ICT ecosystem players from Russia, the CIS region and the international market leaders in 5G technology. The event will be held at the Lotte Hotel Moscow.
Anton Kobyakov, advisor to the President of the Russian Federation, said: “The sphere of mobile and high technologies plays a key role in stimulating economic growth, attracting foreign investments and increasing global competitiveness through development of science and technology.
“Adding more industries to the list of events organized by the Russian Convention Bureau will not only facilitate the development of corresponding areas of the real economy sector but also help create the image of the country on the international arena as one of the most meaningful players on the market of the event industry.”
Alexey Kalachev, director of the Russian Convention Bureau, said: “We use various tools of working with international associations as we work to attract various business events to Russia. We are ready to offer universal and customized solutions that will correspond to the needs and expectations of conference organizers of various scale in different industries.”
