With a subscriber base in the Middle Eastern region set to grow 34% between now and 2010 to reach 193 million people, now is the best time to explore opportunities to make the most of this amazing growth. Designed to give telecom operators a competitive edge in the Middle East and beyond, the presentations include the hottest topics of the region: balancing global expansion with growth in the domestic market; enhancing broadband services to increase operator revenues; maximizing the potential of the fixed license; strategies for customer acquisition and retention; minimizing costs and maximizing ROI in an uncertain financial climate and innovating with revenue-generating value-added services.

Due to popular demand, the program also incorporates two brand-new elements this year: The Saudi Arabia Focus Day dedicated to the Middle East’s fastest-growing market and the two-day Telecoms HR Summit set to analyze the changing role of HR managers during the current economic downturn.

This event is free to all Middle Eastern operators, thus allowing a great representation from the whole region. Participants will get the chance to network and do business with all the movers & shakers of the region and also to try the industry’s newest technical innovations by visiting the 120+ international vendors in the exhibition coinciding with the conference, with key telco powerhouses sponsoring the event such as Etisalat, ITS, Comviva, Nokia Siemens Networks, Gemalto, Actix, Convergys, eServ Global, SmartTrust, Obethur Technologies, Belgacom ICS, Orga Systems, Detecon Consulting, I-New, Qualcomm and Huawei.
