Meffys winners showcase vibrant mobile entertainment industry

MEF last night unveiled the winners of this year’s coveted Meffys awards at a sold out gala dinner in London. The Meffys, in association with Nokia for the third year running, were hosted by Hardeep Singh Kohli, who captivated the audience with his quick wit and passion for mobile.

The winning entries of the sixth annual awards once again provided a snapshot of the range of products, services, apps and projects, from the newly launched to the tried and tested, which are driving the mobile entertainment industry forward.

This year’s winners, representing America, Britain, Denmark, Finland, India, Norway, Russia and Turkey, underlined the Meffys as the global benchmark for recognising success and innovation.

A new award for Business Intelligence highlighted the industry’s growing focus on building definitive metrics and analytics, key to sustaining investment and building on its long-term success.

Rimma Perelmuter, MEF Executive Director said: “In these times of economic uncertainty, MEF is proud to celebrate a $32 billion industry whose relevance and focus continues to inspire innovation and growth. The 2009 Meffys winners are a testament to the industry’s robustness and the central role that mobile is playing in engaging and entertaining consumers around the world.”
