Public Policy Events

In addition to the GSMA’s key advocacy events – Ministerial Programme (part of Mobile World Congress) and the Mobile 360 Series, the GSMA’s Government and Regulatory Affairs team also holds topic-focused seminars, workshops and meetings around the world.
These events support our goal of advancing policy and regulation that enables a safe, sustainable and innovative mobile sector for all. They highlight cutting-edge research and best practice, while providing a forum for discussion on some of the most pressing issues facing policymakers and regulators today.

We also frequently support external events where governments, policymakers, international institutions and the mobile industry discuss a range of policy related topics. For more information on our events, specific requests for a GSMA speaker or related activity, please contact Bella Blake:
