Visiongain Unveils Mobile Handset Outsourcing Telecom Conference

9/8/2004 - Visiongain introduces its b2b conference, MOBILE HANDSET OUTSOURCING 2004: REDUCING COSTS, CUSTOMING BUSINESS MODELS AND MARKET TRANSITION. This conference will address key changes taking place on a global as well as regional scale in the telecommunication sectors.

After the two days, visitors will have a comprehensive understanding of the new trends that are emerging within the handset industry and why companies are being encouraged to enter the own-brand handset space.

Successful case studies and joint ventures from leading vendors, operators and sub-contractors, show how to create long term profitability from outsourcing handsets. The conference will assess how to tailor cost effective manufacturing strategies and improve supply chain efficiencies. The benefits and drawbacks will be analysed and how the move into the manufacturing markets by operators and sub-contractors has affected OEMs'.

The MOBILE HANDSET OUTSOURCING CONFERENCE 2004 will take place on November 10 - 11 at the Hilton Hotel, Kensington, London. The conference will begin October 10 with welcome reception from the conference chairman.

During this conference, leaders from the telecom sector will offer prospective on how contact manufacturers will move into the Original Design Manufacturer (ODM). The programme will cover the growing popularity of the outsourcing model that is engulfing the market and the effect of the mobile phone brand. The major drivers pushing Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) to outsource include continuous market pressures to shorten time-to-market, enhance asset utilisation and master the complexity of process technologies. Outsourcing enables OEMs to focus on their core competencies - research and development, sales and marketing.

Following are companies and organisations participating in the conference program:
