Executive Forum PreBriefing on the Open Mobile Summit
Members of the Council’s Executive Forum gather with their peers several times each year to discuss topics and trends that will affect the telecom industry as a whole. For this meeting, our discussion is about “Open” in Mobile. Open has varying shades, and applies separately to spectrum, networks, device platforms, and content marketplaces. Our goal is to inform and distinguish among the various "open" categories, and discuss the impact of each on business opportunities, destructive market evolution, and innovative applications and services. This discussion will also flow into the Open Mobile Summit running in San Francisco for the following 2 days. To lead the group discussion we have invited experts on the topic including corporate reps and leading analysts. As always with our Executive Roundtable, it’s a two-way conversation. The insights of our Executive Forum Members, who are industry insiders, are as valuable as those of our outside experts. Though this event is intended for our executive members, a limited number of executive-level guests may attend for a fee. If you are not sure if you are a member of the Executive Forum, or if you would like to attend this meeting as a guest, please feel free e-mail Adam Tenbrink if you have any questions. More on the Executive Forum of the Telecom Council: The Executive Forum is exclusively for senior executives and decision makers from Telecom Council member companies and their executive-level guests – this includes C-level people from smaller companies and VP-level people from large corporations. This elite Forum has an online community and holds a quarterly executive-only meetings – generally 2-hour meetings over lunch – to discuss the big picture of what is happening in our industry - from changes in technology, services, business fundamentals, and of course, the carriers. We encourage all our executive members to participate in these conversations. This event is free for Telecom Council members, and open to non-members for $200.
