Mobile University 2013 Summit: Mobile -> Reality
Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM (CDT)
INSPIRATION in consumer behaviors that shift your digital engagement into mobile REALITY
We are past Mobile 101. It's time to translate those digital engagements into real world action. With mobile your brand can be there at the exact moment of decision, the exact moment of purchase.
EVERY week brings another conference that covers mobile. The MobiU2013 Summit is the only one that brings best inspirational educators to a pitch-free, safe learning environment.
WHAT is the MobiU2013 Summit?
First, it's inspiration. With so much media coverage, it's easy to forget that mobile is capable of making lives better for American housewives in suburbia to political uprisings in 3rd World countries.
Second, it's real education. The curriculum features case studies, trends and insights directly from the brands, professors and start-ups trailblazing industry today.
Lastly, it's a safe learning environment so you can focus on learning mobile. NONE of our speakers have paid a sponsorship for speaking. NONE of our Experience Hall exhibitors have paid for their booth. We have invited all of them.
WHO should attend: 80% of the MobiU2013 Summits attendees will be brands, marketers, product managers, agencies, consultants, creatives and strategists.
