Speakers include representatives from Fox Sports, Cosmopolitan, the EU chapter of the MMA, the Mobile Marketing Association, ad agencies and several of the largest carriers in the United States. Sponsors and speakers were targeted for their excellent case studies, success in mobile marketing and knowledge of cross-media marketing campaign execution involving mobile marketing.
New York City was the first city to host the 9-city seminar series.
"It was an amazing show of interest in mobile marketing," said Rob Mesirow, Vice President of Operations for CTIA. "It's exciting to see the tremendous enthusiasm from attendees, and we look forward to a terrific seminar series to match the exponential growth rates in text messaging traffic."
“From the crowd that came to the New York City event, it is clear to see why many analysts predict mobile marketing to be a $5 billion industry by 2005,” said Peter Fuller, executive director of the MMA. “It’s clear that advertisers and brands are grabbing this new medium and working to realize its full potential.”
Called the Mobile Marketing Roadshow, the seminar is a one-day, information packed conference that will be held in nine cities throughout the United States from April to December 2004. The Roadshow series is the first to exclusively spotlight one of the hottest markets in mobile communications, mobile marketing, in the world’s second largest single pool of mobile phone subscribers—the United States. Each segment of the mobile marketing industry will be covered in the series: device manufacturers, carriers, technology partners, advertising agencies, content providers and brands.
