GigaOM, a leading business and technology media company, today announced that fewer than 50 tickets remain for GigaOM Mobilize 2011, the largest and most influential mobile industry conference set to take place September 26-27 in San Francisco.
GigaOM also announced new additions to the Mobilize 2011 all-star speaker lineup, including Erick Tseng, Head of Mobile Products at Facebook; Michael Abbott, VP of Engineering at Twitter; Cole Brodman, CMO and EVP of T-Mobile USA; and Kevin Systrom, CEO of Instagram. These new speakers join industry luminaries from companies such as Sprint, AT&T, Ngmoco, VMware, Pandora, Cisco, PayPal, Walmart, and Verizon who are already scheduled to take the stage at Mobilize 2011.
“The speakers at this year’s conference are the best of the best – from leading industry CEOs to entrepreneurs building the most influential emerging companies,” said Kevin Tofel, Mobile Editor at GigaOM and chair of Mobilize 2011. “We look forward to one-on-one fireside chats with the mobile industry’s most important leaders.”
Now in its fourth year, and for the first time expanded to two days, Mobilize 2011 is the only conference to explore the conjunction of mobile computing and cloud-based services via engaging panels, interactive debates, and headline keynotes. Entrepreneurs, business leaders, journalists, analysts, and venture capitalists will gather to discuss the pressing trends in the mobile industry – from the rise of the app economy and smart devices in the workplace, to mobile commerce and location-based marketing. GigaOM’s award-winning editors and analysts will be on hand to share predictions for the mobile computing sector in the next 12-18 months.
During Mobilize 2011, GigaOM Pro will also release an exclusive new report titled “The Future of Mobile: An Analysis by Segment.” This pivotal research report will include growth predictions for various mobile sectors and insights from 11 GigaOM Pro analysts. The report, the first to offer tangible, near-term observations on the global mobile industry, will discuss how the smartphone craze and the rise of distribution systems like Apple’s App Store and the Android Market has caused a surge in mobile data, and how this data wave will impact various parts of the industry, from hardware to networks to regulated industries like health care. Analysts give their predictions on the evolution of devices, mobile cloud services, mobile advertising, wireless networking, and more, as well as discuss the role both startups and large companies such as Apple, Google, and Microsoft will play in the mobile ecosystem.
Sold out for the last three years, Mobilize is the must-attend conference for anyone working in the mobile industry, as well as executives looking to embrace mobile technologies to drive long-term business innovation. Register today for Mobilize 2011 and join the discussion at what’s sure to be the most influential conference on the mobile industry this year.
