GSMA RCS Business Messaging Labs
What are RCS Business Messaging Labs and how will you benefit from attending?
GSMA RCS Business Messaging Labs have been designed to bring together leading stakeholders in the messaging industry to discuss the operational and commercial requirements that will enable RCS to become an industry-leading business messaging platform.
Attending a GSMA RCS Business Messaging Lab will allow you to contribute to the future of business messaging. From designing commercial models, customer experience, consumer trials, 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.
