Asia Mobile Awards 2023

Started in 2006, the GSMA’s Asia Mobile Awards (the AMOs) are the region’s most prestigious accolade for the connectivity industry. They were created to celebrate the individuals, organisations and partnerships relentlessly striving to better the world through connectivity – from game-changing tech and mobile devices, to the resilient leadership which drives our industry forward.

This year, we welcome the return of an in-person event at MWC Shanghai. Judged by prominent industry experts from the GSMA, even being shortlisted means instant recognition in the tech sector. To actually win an AMO Award is, quite simply, the highest possible praise by your peers from across the digital industry.
