The MEFFYS, hosted by the Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF), celebrate innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the Mobile Ecosystem, applauding the companies that have made a difference in 2023 across MEFs core ecosystems.

Sometimes referred to as the ‘Oscars of the Mobile Ecosystem’ the MEFFYS has eight award categories:

  • ID & Data
  • Enterprise Communications
  • Content & Advertising
  • Global Connectivity
  • Mobile IoT
  • Payments
  • Personal Contribution to the Mobile Ecosystem
  • Sustainability

The awards ceremony, a glitzy red-carpet party, where the winners will be announced, is being held on Monday 26th February 2024 in Barcelona. The awards evening will be a retro-glamorous, black-tie event with food, drink and entertainment, networking, dancing and a few surprises! It is the perfect opportunity to take the pulse of the latest new ideas and trends.

The deadline for submission is 7th February 2024.


Nominations are open to all but only MEF Members and MEF Minute Subscribers can vote.

A company can submit nominations for more than one category, but only if the nomination is for a different product, service or use-case.
