Headlining this year’s event is Soledad O’Brien, CNN Anchor & Special Correspondent.  Speakers also include some of the world’s leading global brands and mobile industry veterans such as:

The MMA Forum will also feature an “Adopt-a-Brand” program that enables MMA members to subsidize the cost of a pass for brands, agencies and retailers that want to attend the Forum.  The conference will also have a “Mobile Experience Lab” which is an interactive way for delegates to experience mobile campaigns firsthand, and interact with brands using mobile as part of their integrated marketing strategies.
