The conference theme, Mobilizing the Next 5 Billion, will explore opportunities and challenges as mobile becomes the first access point for the next wave of technology consumers.

Discussions will also focus on the impact of new mobile innovations such as wearable devices, mobile internet financing and mobile entertainment content.

Wenchu, the CEO of GMIC's organizer, GWC shares, "Asia is home to 60% of the world's population, though only 27% of its internet users. That means incredible opportunity for those in the mobile internet space here, as mobile devices will be their connection to the internet. Without a doubt, the companies joining us at GMIC will be the big influencers on the next five billion internet users."
