MobileBeat Returns to San Francisco, July 10-11

Posted by Jeff Scott on June 18th, 2012

I think of MobileBeat as the business of mobile conference. The conference is about making connections with the business side of the mobile industry. This year the focus of MobileBeat is on something we see ignored all too often, design.

Design: The New Battleground for Mobile

The most successful players are focusing on one thing: How to make products, services, and devices as compelling and delightful as possible – both visually, and experientially.

Under appreciated most of the time time, design truly is the way to make mobile experiences stand out and succeed. No exception this year, there are many big movers in the industry coming out to share their knowledge, including:

• Mark Pincus, Founder, CEO & CPO, Zynga
• Dave Morin, Co-Founder & CEO, Path
• Hill Ferguson, Head of Mobile, Paypal
• Mark Curtis, Founder, Fjord
• Chris Weber, President (US), Nokia
• Scott Dadich, VP Digital Development, Conde Nast
• Jason Spero, Head of Mobile, Google

Take a look at the conference site for more info as the agenda gets filled out.

MobileBeat and GamesBeat Next Week in San Francisco

Posted by Jeff Scott on July 7th, 2011

A combined MobileBeat and GamesBeat will take place in San Francisco next week. July 12-13 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco will see a group of some of the most interesting minds in the mobile and gaming industries will gather to discuss what's next for mobile.

Great speakers include Nolan Bushnell, the father of video games, Jason Spero, Head of Mobile for Google, David Williams, VP of Mobile Products for AT&T, and many more. There will be plenty of great information shared, new products launched, and as usual, lots of great conversations to be had between sessions.

I'm particularly looking forward to the keynote from Nolan Bushnell and many of the GamesBeat talks.
