In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Mobile Entertainment Forum (MEF) Expands to Latin America With Launch in Brazil
Ron Czerny to serve as Acting Chair & Filipe Roup Rosa joins as General Manager for MEF LATAM

LOS ANGELES, Nov 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Entertainment Forum (MEF), the global trade association of the mobile media industry, has announced the launch of its Latin America chapter (MEF LATAM) with an inaugural meeting in Sao Paulo that attracted over 100 companies across the value-chain last week. MEF LATAM's mission will be to foster an environment conducive to driving mobile entertainment development across the region, by creating dialogue between the industry and regulators, as well as driving initiatives that promote best practices and sustainable business solutions.

MEF LATAM has already attracted 24 major companies as founding members, including 2ergo, Binbit, Blink, Boltcel, Comfone, Dada, Flycell, Fox Mobile Distribution, Getjar, Impact Mobile, KPMG, Masurlaw, NeoMobile, Nokia, Omnifone, PlayPhone, RIM, Silverstreet, Sony Music, Sony Pictures, SPB Software, Telefonica, TIM and Zed.

Ron Czerny, Acting Chair of MEF LATAM and CEO of Playphone said, "MEF provides a strong vehicle for the mobile entertainment industry as a whole to represent its interests through one coherent voice. The quality of the founding members is a great achievement for MEF LATAM which will serve as a source of strength for achieving solutions and clear results in the region." During the meeting, Filipe Roup Rosa was announced as General Manager, MEF LATAM. He is based in Sao Paulo which will serve as the regional headquarters. Rosa highlighted that "the growth of mobile media in Latin America is exponential, but that speed has created gaps in regulation. MEF's intention is to act strongly to address regulatory issues and tackle problems such as the tax burden on our industry with effective measures. We will also act quickly to elect the first regional board of MEF LATAM and implement the action plan set out by members."

Rimma Perelmuter, MEF Executive Director stated that "MEF's international expertise in working with regulators, identifying sustainable business models and accelerating market entry opportunities will foster the growth of the industry and deliver competitive advantage to our members. These tools have made MEF successful worldwide and will form the core aspects of our work in LATAM."

Suhail Bhat, MEF Policy and Initiatives Director, reinforced the importance of achieving progress through self and co-regulation: "Our goal is to foster collaboration between local regulators and our members. Underpinning the phenomenal growth in Brazil and the future success of the mobile entertainment industry is consumer trust in mobile media. Growth comes from having regulatory frameworks or Codes that are transparent, consistent in their application and proportionate to the harm they are trying to prevent." Bhat also stressed the need to educate regulators on the developments in the industry and to ensure they understand the complex nature of mobile content and service delivery.

Notes to editors:

With global headquarters in London, a Hollywood-based Americas secretariat, an Asian chapter in Singapore and the newly expanded EMEA branch, MEF's network of members represents a veritable 'Who's Who' of mobile entertainment businesses and entrepreneurs.
