Wireless Content & Applications SIG Presents…

Mobile Advertising

-Hear it from the Experts!-

6:00PM Event Starts
7:30PM Event Ends

Join us for an exciting evening where we talk about this hot, multi-billion dollar phenomena, called Mobile Advertising. And who better, than the authors of the new book: “Mobile Advertising: Supercharge your brand in the exploding wireless market”. Here is an excerpt from their book: “Mobile advertising is the stuff of which great cocktail party conversations are made. Some research houses are telling us to expect a $12 billion market by 2011. Online advertising has grown to look like a business to print money, so it’s only natural for there to be a little envy among us all. But that shouldn’t cause us to forget that online advertising didn’t exactly happen overnight it was tough sledding. And while there are obvious winners today, we all tend to forget the carnage left in the wake of unrealistic expectations.”


This event is also the book launch event for the authors in San Diego, so, if you are looking for your copy of this book, do come and attend!
