GSMA Confirms M360 APAC 2024 Will Return to Seoul

News of M360 APAC’s return to Seoul was announced during a special signing ceremony with the GSMA and host sponsor, KT, at MWC Barcelona 2024, and follows the debut edition of the event in the South Korean capital last year

26 February 2024, Barcelona: The GSMA has today confirmed M360 APAC 2024, hosted in partnership with KT, will return to Seoul, South Korea, between 1-2 October 2024.

The announcement was made during a signing ceremony at MWC Barcelona 2024 with the GSMA and host sponsor, KT, attended by representatives from the ICT Ministry of South Korea.

M360 APAC 2024 will convene leaders from the global mobile ecosystem, adjacent industries and policymakers, for an agenda focused on the impact of mobile technologies on APAC economies.

Discussion will include the role of initiatives such as the GSMA Open Gateway in fostering industry-wide collaboration, the importance of policy frameworks that ensure all major players are contributing to the upkeep of mobile infrastructure, and progress in closing the usage gap and bringing the benefits of mobile internet to all.

M360 APAC was first brought to the South Korean capital for the 2023 edition of the event in September last year, during which regional leaders came together to discuss topics such as 5G acceleration and digital inclusion.

Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA said, “The rollout of 5G has been faster than any previous generation of mobile technology, reaching 1.6 billion connections by the end of 2023, and we cannot wait to return to where it all began in 2019. We are delighted to host M360 APAC once again in Seoul; it promises to be a must-attend event for anybody interested in seeing the innovations unfolding across the world’s largest mobile markets.”

Kim Young Shub, CEO of KT, said, “As a 'digital transformation partner,' KT aims to transform the paradigm of the digital market, traditionally dominated by big tech companies, presenting various agendas to enhance the capabilities and market dominance of telecommunications operators. As last year, we will strive to successfully lead M360 APAC in Seoul and secure leadership in the digital ecosystem, including AI.”
