C0NN3CT rings in as a success!

Written by Harri on . Posted in Events

Connect Front Page

As m-commerce, fibre optic broadband and 4G continue to play an increasingly important part in performance marketing, C0NN3CT — our annual telecoms sector event, set the right mood to bring together targeted publishers and key brands such as BT, EE, Plusnet and 02 for a day of fruitful networking.  Where better to host C0NN3CT 2013 than the stunning Grand Connaught Rooms? Nestled in the heart of Central London, we opted for the lavishly decorated Crown and Cornwall suites for an added dose of glamour.

Account Directors Simon Connect 1Hofmeister and Daniel Fernandes kicked off the proceedings with an in depth presentation entitled “A Network’s Perspective on the Past, Present and Future of the Telecoms Industry.” Featuring data from our tracking reports, Simon and Daniel provided valuable insights into the telecoms sector, highlighting key findings. Sound bites included ‘the adoption rate of fibre through affiliates is over-indexing the national average’ and ‘around 97% of mobile transactions involve only 1 affiliate referral’.  The presentation was followed by a short demo of mobile opportunities from our Senior Mobile & Emerging Channel Specialist Hatice van Leeuwen, who discussed general trends, mobile device splits, future developments and more.
