BEIJING, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The GSMA today announced the first details of the 2013 GSMA Mobile Asia Expo, which will be held June 26-28 at the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre in Shanghai. Now in its second year, Mobile Asia Expo will include a conference programme featuring CEOs and senior executives from leading companies in Asia and around the world; an extensive exhibition showcasing innovative mobile products and services, including the new Connected City; the App Planet programme for the mobile application development community; a government and regulatory programme; and a variety of other seminars, meetings and educational programmes.

"We are pleased to be returning to Shanghai for our second Mobile Asia Expo," said Michael O'Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA. "Building on the success of our inaugural event last year, the 2013 edition of Mobile Asia Expo will attract more than 20,000 attendees, including executives and mobile professionals from across the broad mobile communications ecosystem, government officials, technology-savvy consumers.
