With deep regret we advise that the GSMA has decided to cancel this year’s Public Policy Forum in Shanghai. The decision was not taken lightly. We firmly believe in the value of convening governments and the private sector to shape the future of our industry. This year, the coincidence of two important intergovernmental meetings during the same week — WSIS+10 (Geneva) and the APT Conference Preparatory Group for WRC 2015 (Brisbane) — has affected the number of people who can attend the Public Policy Forum.
The GSMA understands that this decision has a significant impact on our attendees and speakers in their professional and personal lives, and we have committed to notifying each individual within 24 hours of the decision. Passes for Mobile Asia Expo will remain active, should you wish to participate in the main conference and exhibition taking place from 11-13 June. However, if you have purchased a pass to Mobile Asia Expo and would prefer a refund, we will arrange this.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused, and we look forward to engaging with you in other regional and national settings, including the GSMA Ministerial Programme at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next March.
Should you have any questions regarding this decision, please contact our team via the form below and they will be happy to assist you.
