And the Mobile World Congress was a significant step towards this vision. I would like to thank DCEO Director Adam Pollet and Illinois Governor Pat Quinn for their leadership to start such an extraordinary initiative.”
The Mobile World Congress brings together industry leaders for learning and networking opportunities, product showcases and announcements, and inspiration and innovation. Companies represented at the event included Accenture, Cisco, Deutsche Telekom AG, Ericsson, IBM, Mozilla, and WhatsApp. Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg presented the keynote address on Monday.
