Malta prides itself on having a great mobile network – even if we keep waiting for tariffs to creep down to mainland EU levels. For most of us, the days when calls dropped because of lack of coverage are long gone. There’s also finally some element of competition between the three main mobile providers.
Now, there’s going to be a forum for anyone interested in mobile to talk about these issues and more, whichever operator they advocate or subscribe to. A forum for exchange, intelligent debate and promotion of the best that mobile technologies can bring Malta.
Those of you interested in all things mobile, take note of the launch of Mobile Monday in Malta on 14 September. Mobile Monday is a global grass roots organisation present in over seventy countries / regions, focusing on the mobile industry. It’s a framework for regular live networking events for professionals within the mobile industry, and others increasingly converging with it, such as ICT, entertainment, publishing, and others. People use Mobile Monday to meet regularly to discuss, network, exchange ideas and create value for themselves, and their communities.
It’s free to attend and participate. As well as networking, the major objective of the organisation and all its chapters is to act as a catalyst for innovative companies and new ideas, and to bring fresh global ideas and services to the local market. It’s also there to help local market players – established, and budding entrepreneurs – to find partners across the globe through the Mobile Monday Global network.
The Malta chapter kicks off with Jari Tammisto and MadanMohan Rao, two international mobile visionaries.
If you are an entrepreneur, mobile enthusiast, technology worker, or just plain interested in joining this exciting community, be sure to register your attendance here. There’s further information on the event and speakers at Mobile Monday Malta’s website.
The event on the 14th September is at the Palace Hotel, Sliema. Things kick off at 18.30 hrs.
