San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2008
The dotMobi Advisory Group (MAG), the dotMobi accredited independent not-for-profit industry forum, and Informa Telecoms & Media, the leading provider of business intelligence and strategic marketing solutions to global telecoms and media markets, today announced its partnership on a series of global industry events focusing on the mobile web. The Informa Telecoms & Media successful Mobile Web event series launched in September 2007, will now be the Official Event of the dotMobi Advisory Group.
"Informa's well established presence in the telecoms and media industries, along with their recognition of the mobile web as the next global major communications' frontier' make them an excellent fit with the dotMobi Advisory Group and a solid anchor for our international events' strategy in 2008" stated Michael J. O'Farrell, Chair and Executive Director of the dotMobi Advisory Group. "The open mobile web marketplace is a very complex space. Informa's approach to educating global markets and regionalising key issues for new service adoption success aligns very well with our next wave of MAG growth initiatives."
"In seeking out a strategic industry trade partner for our global Mobile Web event series, the MAG seemed like a logical choice for us," noted Carolyn Dawson, Events Director, Informa Telecoms and Media "MAG member companies represent many of the key players in the open mobile web value chain - from domain through to service delivery - seeking to improve the mobile experience and to commercialize the new opportunities that mobility brings with it."
Mobile Web USA 21-23 January, 2008 in San Francisco (http://www.informatm.com/mobilewebusa) is the first event in the global series.

The MAG workshop will offer attendees with access to new developer tools, feature new product releases and networking opportunities for brands and the mobile web developer community. The Mobile Web USA event will also be the venue for the MAG's Annual General Meeting as well an opportunity for a number of the MAG task forces to convene face to face.
