UMA Innovation Awards

One of the highlights of the Mobile World Congress was the UMA Today Innovation Awards. The response from the operator and vendor community was stronger than expected and really put the pressure on the judges to sort out the winners.

The program was sponsored by Orange and UMA Today. Orange further agreed to host the presentation ceremony on their stand at the MWC. Done with typical French flair, Orange made the event a classy affair with champagne, hors d’oeuvres (or was it cava and tapas?) and great hospitality.

Awards were presented to leaders in the UMA market. In the end, Orange was honored as “Most Influential Company”, and I can assure you it wasn’t simply because of the champagne!

Congratulations to all the winners. And for those who didn’t win or didn’t enter, don’t worry, there’s always the 2009 program.
