Didn't travel to Vegas for CES or Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress, the world’s largest mobile conference and exhibition? Or did attend, but looking for a robust discussion about what happened, what didn’t, and what you might have missed?
Each year, these conferences draw 50,000 participants and features literally hundreds of company exhibits. Hundreds of press releases and articles are published during the shows, as mobile companies of all stripes – carriers, device makers, and applications developers – vie for attention.
Our post-conference event gives you an opportunity to sort through it all – whether you attended or not. Here’s the format: a roundtable discussion featuring four or five speakers who attended the conference, each offering his or her unique perspective and others who didn't looking for the insiders perspective and sharing views of what they heard. A spirited round of questions and debate follows, as the discussion moves past the show and on to what’s emerging and changing in mobile. In the past, attendees of these debriefings have valued not just the show review but also the opportunity to interact with colleagues about the industry generally.
