We continue to develop the Telemedia industry’s key pitch [to verticals] of “how carrier billing & engagement technologies can drive value added services and help monetise content”. We’re also building ever stronger links with the vibrant world of Affiliate and Advertising Networks in order to help Merchants & Content Owners understand how to maximise these powerful routes to market. We can also confidently predict another fantastic line-up high level speakers and hosts representing some of the leading networks, aggregators, payment gateways and VAS providers.

NEW “Spotlight” Sessions

Our new “Spotlight” program provides “bite-size” open sessions which offer delegates a wider choice of topics and presentations in a quick fire (20min) format. This enables them to pick and choose the most relevant presentations which, in turn frees up valuable time for networking and meetings. Sessions will cover “issues of the day”, case study presentation and panel discussions; all designed to guide both buyers and suppliers towards future opportunities – through new technologies, markets, partnerships and service propositions.

Empello Country Updates

Many of our delegates are looking to enter new international markets or develop their business in existing ones. Each update will be co-hosted with incumbent specialists that represent billing gateways, aggregators, service providers and / or network operators. During these “quick-fire drop in” sessions, delegates will gain valuable local knowledge, expertise and insight; to help assess new commercial opportunities and learn how to succeed in each of our featured markets.

Each Country Update Session includes:

  • Market Overview
  • Latest News
  • Top Services
  • Major Content Providers
  • Billing & Subscription Options
  • Carrier & Regulator Rules
  • Compliance Overview
  • Marketing & Ad Flow (examples)

Sponsor Hospitality Breakouts

Like-minded delegates are invited to grab a glass, head for the relevant sponsor hospitality area and mingle with some specially selected “hosts” that are ready to discuss some of the key “issues of the day”.
