GSMA – Our Role in the Mobile Industry

The GSMA is the global industry association that helps shape the future of the mobile industry. Our mission is to act as a guiding beacon for the mobile industry, focusing on activities where collective action can deliver significant benefit. In order to achieve this, the GSMA concentrates on four main activities:

  • We provide strategic direction and thought leadership to our members
  • We drive collaborative industry programmes aimed at maintaining operator relevance in the digital world
  • We advocate for the industry to regulators, policy makers and society as a whole
  • We convene the broad mobile communications ecosystem at our industry leading events

The GSMA unites nearly 800 of the world's mobile operators, as well as more than 200 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem, including handset makers, software companies, equipment providers, Internet companies, and media and entertainment organisations. The GSMA is focused on innovating, incubating and creating new opportunities for its membership, all with the end goal of driving the growth of the mobile communications industry.

We act as a “think tank” for the mobile community focusing on strategic and policy initiatives that will impact the direction of the industry.

Our organisation engages with a wide range of governments, regulators and NGOs (such as The World Bank, UN and philanthropic organisations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) to advocate for the mobile industry and develop the social and economic value of mobile for countries, regions and continents.

We convene the mobile industry at our leading events such as Mobile World Congress Americas, Mobile World Congress Shanghai, Mobile World Congress 360 Series and the world leading Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
