The Future Networks Programme will be hosting the twenty-eighth GSMA RCS Business Messaging Lab sponsored by Out There Media, on Monday 11th November 2019 to coincide with AfricaCom.

Attending a GSMA RCS Business Messaging Lab will allow you to contribute to the future of business messaging. From designing customer experience to informing the GSMA standards, your contribution will ensure an open ecosystem that works together to realise the value estimated by 2020 of $74 billion. Networking is a major part of the Lab series, and individuals have made important connections at the Labs they have gone on to work with.

The Awareness Lab is aimed at companies that are new to RCS. The purpose of these Labs is to provide individuals with an understanding of the Operator RCS service, the GSMA Universal Profile standard, the RCS Ecosystem (Operators, Brands, Technology Companies and Marketing Companies), RCS global deployment, handset adoption, customer experience, brand trials, commercial models and privacy, and security and trust.

In addition to taking advantage of important networking opportunities, you’ll also have the chance to hear from high-profile speakers on the following topics and more:

  • Global position of RCS
  • Achieving scale
  • Technical solutions
  • The business case for RCS Business Messaging
  • Brand campaigns and results showcased at MWC Barcelona 2019
