Innovative Mobile Services & New Revenue Models | Events | IDC CEMA

From mobile banking to value-added content provision, increasing mobile penetration and the rapid development of mobile broadband is creating opportunities for innovative client services and new revenue streams for both telecommunications operators and businesses in sectors like financial services, transportation, retail, and media and entertainment.

The Bulgarian telecom market in 2007 flourished owing to the fact that it was stimulated by continuing investments in the mobile and Broadband sectors. While there was little further mobile network construction, most operators have upgraded existing networks to higher-capacity HSDPA to take advantage of mobile data offerings. In conjunction with these investments, in 2008 and 2009 a greater emphasis will be placed on migrating consumers to 3G services and on developing content to stimulate higher ARPU.

IDC's Innovative Mobile Services & New Revenue Models conference focuses on the key trends currently shaping the market and the opportunities development of mobile services presents to businesses of all types.

The event will introduce you to, among others, the following industry experts:
