Announcing Mobile Future Forward 2013 – Mining the trillion dollar opportunity

Announcing Mobile Future Forward 2013 – Mining the trillion dollar opportunity


I hope you are enjoying spring.

I thought I will provide an update on our fall mobile executive summit – Mobile Future Forward (Sept 10th in Seattle). I am very pleased to announce the preliminary program. We will provide regular updates as we add new executives to the program and continue to refine the discussion topics to give you the best learning and networking experience you can find in the mobile industry. As you know, our programs are deep in content and high on participant caliber. Each year we strive to bring together some of the leading thinkers and doers from around the world to brainstorm the future of mobile. As we like to call it – it is a mobile boot camp with the brightest brains in mobile.

The mobile industry is entering what I call the “golden period” of its evolution. The fourth wave of mobile is going to generate trillions of dollars over the course of the next decade. The ecosystem will become more diverse, each of the major verticals will get redefined by mobile, and consumers around the globe will benefit tremendously from connections to information, intelligence, objects, and each other. Enterprise productivity and efficiency will increase manifold and the golden period of mobile will help shape human history. But how and by whom? That will be the crux of the summit in September.

We are delighted to be partnering with some of the leading players in the ecosystem: CitrixByteMobile, Ericsson, Intel, Synchronoss, and Telefonica.

Some of the outstanding group of executives who are responsible for changing the face of the industry every day will be leading the discussion. Their insights will be invaluable and actionable.
