Irish company Anam will host the GSMA Wholesale Agreements and Solutions Group (WAS#4) Summit in Dublin next week. Some of the key players from the world of mobile communications will be in town to take part in the event, which runs from October 31st to November 3rd at the Convention Centre in Dublin. 

GMSA, the body behind Mobile World Congress, represents nearly 800 mobile operators and some 250 companies from the wider mobile ecosystem. More than 1,200 senior executives from mobile giants such as AT&T, Verizon, Vodafone and Hutchison will be in attendance over the four days. 

Anam, a Dublin based mobile software company, fought off tough competition to host this year's event. Speaking ahead of the event, Dr Noel Kelly, CEO of Anam explained the benefits of hosting WAS#4,

“On a macro-level, the long-term benefits of hosting such a premier telecoms event in Dublin will result in greater awareness amongst leading mobile operators about Ireland’s skilled software talent, cutting edge research IP and innovation, as well as EI and IDA supports for innovative export business.” 

“Anam benefits through hosting this major gathering of GSMA WAS#4 industry leaders, as it literally brings existing and potential customers right to our doorstep. It’s of enormous significance in the context of our business development strategy and reflects Anam’s strong position in this global industry,” he continued. 

The event is estimated to be worth over €3m to the local economy.
