As many of you know, I work with companies in South Korea and Korean development bodies, specifically ipark/kipa in london. Jim O’Reilly
Alliance and Partner Manager iPark EMEA is a good contact for all things Korean and also a good friend.
If you want to see any Korean companies at 3GSM, Jim is the person to contact(alternately post here or email me on ajit.jaokar at futuretext.com and I will facilitate an introduction)
Note from Jim including contact details and companies exhibiting:
As you know Korea is number a world leader for Wireless Data revenues with 28.6 % data ARPU and 3.5 million terminals on Digital Media Broadcast –Mobile TV in 2006 already to name just a few
If Europe is serious about closing the EBITDA gap from 35% to 45% as in Asia and Korea then 3GSM is the right place to reduce costs and risks and grow data revenues by partnering.
I am sure following last years successful intro – Spain will do us proud as a host again this year.
Once again on behalf of the Korean Government we offer a free service arranging Alliance and Partnerships for the Korean Wireless Industry in Barcelona and believe working together with your teams would lead to greater market opportunities and sales leads for your business.
In particular looking at the various portfolios I believe partnerships with Mobile browser applications and interoperable Music DRM solutions across many devices and formats would be of immediate benefit to many of your customers
