This year, C&W Networks sponsored CariCam and VAS Forum LATAM, a pair of events that took place in Miami from November 14th to the 16th. Participation in these events offer major business opportunities. These opportunities are high-level industry events that bring together key players, operators and providers to discuss how to promote the telecommunications industry in Central America and the Caribbean.
Additionally, these events offer the perfect opportunity for networking considering the high-quality, industry-focused case studies that were presented. These lead to discussions and a sharing of experiences between operators and other industry players. The CariCam Summit combined educational content, an assessment of the state of the industry and an exploration of new growth areas. This is one of the best business events in our region.
VAS Forum LATAM is the only event that brings together the entire Value-Added Service (VAS) industry from South America, Central America and the Caribbean. This event allows discussion for the most effective strategies to increase revenue for mobile operators. VAS offered educational content and industry experiences firsthand, as well as an assessment of the state of the industry and exploration of new growth areas. Event programming was based on service deployment, mobile content, corporate applications, multimedia services, entertainment, mobile payments, mobile communities and marketing. We are pleased to report that we had a great experience with the other major operators in Latin America together this year.
