What is your go-to-market strategy for WiMAX in the Middle East North Africa region?

by Staff Writer | posted on 11 June 2009

It's a good question for WiMAX industry members; developing markets are a good bet for sales. So the 3rd Annual Event - "WiMAX Forum MENA Regional Focus" on 23-24 June 2009 will attract interested delegates - even though it's at the Movenpick Bur Hotel, Dubai.

Only 11 Days to go to the only WiMAX Dedicated Event for MENA!

"The Middle East and North Africa regions are showing extraordinary levels of
growth in the broadband wireless space, and WiMAX seems ideally placed to
capture a major share of this revenue opportunity," says Informa, the conf organiser.

"Coupled with new spectrum availability, WiMAX is also enabling a plethora of new Greenfield operators
to enter the fray, shaking up the dynamics of competition for incumbent operators and providing new levels of choice for consumers."

Reflecting this growth, the third annual WiMAX Forum MENA Congress features contributions from over 20 operators this year, as well as an increased North Africa focus. There's a 20% discount for "operators" who attend.

Confirmed speakers include delegates from 20 operators, including:

  • Dr. Ahmed Abbas Sindi, CEO, GO Etihad Atheeb Telecom (Saudi Arabia)
  • Dr Laith Sadiq, CEO, Mena Telecom (Bahrain)
  • Martin Harriman, Chief Commercial Officer, Augere (Pakistan)
