Attended only by CEOs or their direct nominees of the world’s mobile entertainment industry.
The inaugural MEF CEO Summit begins three days of industry thought leadership, business development and profiling, presented by MEF, which also includes our annual Meffys Awards (June 21st) and Mobile Entertainment Market (MeM), MEF’s annual event celebrating its 10th year (June 22nd - 23rd). The event, which will be exclusive to the business leaders of MEF members only, will be an opportunity to discuss, in private, the corporate interests and dynamics of all the leading companies in the mobile content and media industry.
The event will feature a small number of leading visionaries who will act as stimulus speakers, with the majority of the event providing an open forum to discuss and debate these critical issues. The event will operate behind closed doors and, with no press presence, discussions will be completely open, with nothing attributable.
A working lunch will be served, along with opening and closing networking drinks.
Themes will include:
