The focus of VIBtelecoms latest conference, Location Based Services (LBS), will be maximizing revenue and engaging the consumer. The conference is to be held on Wednesday and Thursday, 3 and 4 September 2008, in London and will explore mass uptake, revenue acquisition, and consumer acceptance within the context of the very latest industry developments.
“Location Based Services are an area of great interest to the telecoms sector,” according to Bryan Stockwell, Business Development Manager, Mobile Commerce. “With operators allowing their networks to open, opportunities to capitalize on location aware products are increasing.’ Speaking at the event on aggregation and the importance of cross-network interoperability, Stockwell declared “2008 as certainly the year for significant LBS development’ where ‘getting the right information’ is the crucial factor in encouraging market growth.”
Tackling the ‘enablers and barriers’ in LBS, will be O2’s expert, Ian Curran, head of Telematics and M2M Communications. Curran will be discussing, the practical approaches to sourcing sustainable revenue streams along with a panel discussion on making LBS indispensable to the consumer.
Together with Stockwell and Curran, there will be the voices of experience and success at LBS: Nokia, OMA, KPN, Telenor, and Swisscom joining the expert panel for the open discussion of the deployment of Location Based Services and demonstrating, from a practical aspect, how to develop revenue streams.
The conference will be extremely useful for mobile network operators, content providers, application providers, handset providers, and regulation committees. In addition, it will be a networking hot spot for all those involved in LBS today.
