The inaugural India Mobile Congress will begin on September 27. The three-day expo will see participation from eight embassies.

“Eight embassies -- UK, US, Germany, France, Sweden, the Philippines, Finland and Israel -- will participate in the event. We expect 25,000-50,000 footfall every year at the event,” said Rajan S. Mathews, Director General, Cellular Operators’ Association of India.
