Event Details

HMC 2014 Open Strat Sessions

I invite you to attend the Heartland Mobile Council's next Open Strategy Session. With a HUGE year planned, we are now ready to make 2014 the Year of Mobile for Chicago!

2013 was big for mobile and for the HMC.  Some HMC highlights include:

  • We partnered with 16 brands to help educate our audience including: PepsiCo, Redbox, BCBS, Domino's, Kimberly-Clark, InterContinental Hotels Group, Morningstar, Allstate, Whirlpool, MasterCard, Mead Johnson Nutritionals, United Airlines, Walgreens, Best Buy, Select Comfort, BabyCenter
  • We covered a rich array of mobile topics including Millennials, Hispanics, Path to Purchase, Moms, Location Behaviors, Mobile Wallet, Legal, Building Mobile Teams and more. 
  • We created new concepts: Brands+Startups™, a marketing accelerator; a Mobile2Reality Pitch competition with PepsiCo; Mobile+Humanity Art Show

In 2014 we have even bigger goals as we bring you four major new initiatives and grow existing ones:

  • Mobile University™ Week.  A city-wide week of mobile education in September anchored by our Summit.
  • Mobile University™ Forums.  May 15 - Mobile Commerce; Oct/Nov - Minneapolis
  • Brands+Startups™ AcceleratorBlue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, a University of Michigan Professor and our other partner brands teach mobile startups marketing through stylized pitch competition.
  • HMC Mobile Certification.  Partnered with Northwestern University and the Boy Scouts of America, the HMC and its brand partners teach the future generation of mobile innovators.
  • HMC Mobile ThinkTank.  HBR-like publication inspires & educates by sharing deep mobile expertise.
  • HMC Action.  Launch mobile campaigns through pitch competitions and with non-profits. Partnered with Boy Scouts of America
  • HMC Experience Hall.  Exhibitors become part of the education by creating a mobile engagement.

As always, we need your passion and participation to make it happen. You will learn a lot, make connections and be part of something more fulfilling than just a trade organization. After all, we are the biggest, baddest group of mobile influencers in Middle America and we are on a mission to change the industry. Come join us - we promise you'll leave on a mobile high!

- Hugh Park Jedwill, President & Executive Director, HMC
