The Mobile Advertising Guideline Committee aims to identify and articulate best practice
approaches to mobile measurement and data collection, and is responsible for establishing
standards for mobile ad unit sizes. The Committee also offers guidance on emerging
platforms.

The Market Education & Certification Program Committee supports MMA's key goal of
providing regular training and industry updates to its members. The Committee will be
working towards developing an on-going China-specific study that maps the market, players
and opportunities, including data to educate the advertising community.

As a not-for-profit industry body the MMA relies on the industry's participation and
sponsorships to support its activities and the Marketing & Partnership Committee seeks to
encourage companies to actively opt-in for services.

The Research Committee is tasked with understanding brands' and marketers' expectations
when using the mobile channel as well as measuring consumer behaviour and trends.

Over the past year MMA China, under the guidance of the previous Board of Directors,
released four sets of Guidelines and White Papers, established an Education Committee
Advisory Board, organized educational workshops, and created mobile advertising
standards together with leading advertising network platforms, third party research
institutions and brand advertisers. The new Committee will help take these activities forward.

"China is no longer an emerging market - it has arrived. It is currently the world's largest
mobile phone market and mobile marketing in the country will become increasingly
significant to brands. The Board of Directors provide valuable insight that will be critical in the
development of the MMA's initiatives and the mobile marketing space in China. I look
forward to working with them to drive the growth of our industry," said Rohit Dadwal,
Managing Director, MMA APAC.
