Tariff Consultancy Ltd (TCL) is delighted to announce a series of expert speakers will be taking part at our keynote mobile conference event to be held at Cambridge University this July. § Acision, the global leader in messaging and payment platforms for the mobile industry, is to present on the Future of Messaging with the role of charging in driving usage, and in using price plans and bundling for value propositions and the use of loyalty rewards and incentives. § The CEO of Bango, Raymond Anderson, will present on how to achieve monetization through pricing optimization, and will provide a case study of their experiences with Orange and Vodafone on how to measure user behaviour. § Demet Penpecioglu, head of Turkcell’s Pricing & Billing Operations department, is to provide insight into how to differentiate mobile services in competitive markets and retain customers based on Turkcell’s experience in Turkey. The additional speaker line-up already joins a complete range of mobile industry viewpoints with presenters already confirmed from the GSM Association, Mobile World, Disruptive Analysis, Antelope Consulting, Meditel (Morocco), Brazil Telecom and more. The symposium features an overview of “pricing in action” which will detail an array of mobile tariffs, an assessment of cost and value pricing, mobile interconnect, new pricing models for content, creating price advantage through mobile customer segmentation, mobile pricing and regulation, and will examine the relationship between mobile pricing and marketing. Executives at the symposium will also obtain practical experience as they form syndicates and asked to make a series of pricing and marketing decisions for an operator company based on the case study provided. Designed for pricing, tariffing and marketing executives in mobile operating companies, the symposium is a unique opportunity to reflect on pricing and marketing methodologies to enhance business skills and increase pricing insight. Located in the relaxed setting of Homerton College Cambridge, executives registering for the residential course may opt for accommodation in the college.
