Events

In addition to the GSMA’s key events – Mobile World Congress, MWC Shanghai, MWC Americas and the Mobile 360 Series – the GSMA Mobile for Development team also holds topic-focused seminars, workshops and meetings around the world.

These events support our goal of delivering innovations with socio-economic impact in financial services, health, agriculture, digital identity, energy, water, sanitation, disaster resilience and gender equality.

We also frequently support external events where mobile operators, tech innovators, the development community and governments discuss a range of topics to prove the power of mobile in emerging markets.
