Mobile-Loco: The Future of the Social-Location Revolution

The mobile advertising opportunities from social-location are just now coming into focus for major brands and agencies looking for an edge in connecting with consumers.  However, there is still a gulf between the forecast potential of this market (projected to be in excess of $15B) and the actual execution of social location marketing:  who are the players? Which tactics work? How do brands get started? Converge Labs in partnership with Nokia will provide MWC attendees with a closer look at this new market and the potential opportunities for brands, agencies and tech companies.

Mobile-Loco @ mPower Brands:
Mobile-Loco will offer content, meeting space and a discussion venue to spark directed conversations between brand representatives attending MWC and the leading companies in the Social-Location market.  We will help brands learn how social location can be used to meet their marketing objectives.  Specifically, we’ll be working with the brands, agencies and tech companies group to:

  • Facilitate discussions involving leading companies in the Social-Location market on current best practices. Provide opportunities for thought leadership and exchange between brands and startups.
  • Arrange 1:1 meetings between brands and leading Social-Location companies

This content will enhance the mPowered Brand experience by giving attendees from major brands concrete learnings about this exciting new space and real contacts with leading companies.

Mobile-Loco: where brands, agencies, entrepreneurs and the tech industry converge.
