The Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC), a conference and mobile community gathering to explore the latest mobile technology industry trends, was held this week in Indonesia.
Playing out at the Shangri-La Hotel in Jakarta, the conference was sponsored by the Great Wall Club (GWC), a private network for innovators and executives from leading mobile companies worldwide. It’s the first of its kind for Indonesia and a testament to the rapid growth of the mobile tech market in Southeast Asia.
“GMIC has become one of the largest mobile community events for attendees to learn about the latest in mobile and internet innovations as well as connect with industry thought leaders,” a provided statement reads. “GMIC is aimed at educating people to better understand the mobile internet industry, the latest trends in mobile technology, and to highlight how mobile technology is positively changing the world.”
The Jakarta conference specifically addressed these topics as they pertain to Indonesia and Southeast Asia.
“We would like GMIC to become a platform for mobile industry executives, innovators, developers and entrepreneurs to innovate and expand their knowledge on the latest mobile technology trends,” said Wen Chu, founder and CEO of GWC. “We aspire GMIC Jakarta to be the conference people attend to better understand and grasp the mobile technology industry in Southeast Asia.”
