Building sustainable MVNO businesses

In this inaugural MVNO Summit at MWC we welcomed over 370 attendees from 60 countries, representing over 200 companies. 66% of attendees were Director/VP/C-Level and included over 30 MNO and 54 MVNO organisations.

Event synopsis:

Some reports suggest that worldwide only 20% of the conceived MVNOs survive… so what does it take to create the ultimate, sustainable, MVNO business model? What factors come into play when prioritising your virtual network attributes and industry-play? What differentiates the leaders from the followers… and the failures? Which are the industry partnerships that matter most?

In this inaugural MWC MVNO Summit you will hear from pioneering MVNOs that have implemented innovative business models and commercial sustainability that has allowed them to not just survive, but to be hugely successful. We will also hear from those businesses that have diversified their core offering, building up an MVNO arm to scale and differentiate. And we will hear from the wider ecosystem as to what defines a successful MVNO partnership.
