Mobile Future Forward – Early Bird expires tomorrow July 9, 2012Posted by chetan in : Mobile Future Forward , trackback
Hope all’s well and that you are enjoying summer. Seattle is finally seeing its share of sun this week.
We just finished off a busy June with Mobile Breakfast Series events in Seattle, Atlanta, and London. Great discussions around OTT, Cloud, and Connected Devices with some of the leaders in the space. Check out the event recaps. We have more research coming out on the subject so stay tuned.
One thing is pretty clear – it is a great time to be a consumer. Choices abound. However, the key question in industry shifts is how the revenue will get distributed amongst the players and if any new money is going to come into the ecosystem. That will be the core of the discussion themes at our fall mobile executive summit – Mobile Future Forward on Sept 10th in Seattle and I am very pleased how the program is shaping up. We will provide regular updates as we continue to refine the program and announce more speakers. 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.
I am delighted to be partnering with some of the leading players in the mobile ecosystem: Intel, Ericsson, Juniper, Synchronoss, and Tekelec.
We are expecting a full house so grab your seats today. Early bird expires Tuesday – July 10th.
As you can see below, we have an outstanding group of executives who are responsible for changing the industry every day. Their viewpoints and commentary will be invaluable. The Mobile Future Forward team, our esteemed partners, our fantastic speakers and our engaged community are really looking forward to Sept 10th.
