Closing Reception

Future:Mobile is a two-day, invitation-only forum limited to 350 senior executives. It is designed specifically to provide participants with a snapshot of what is occurring at the innovative edge of the wireless industry. We have selected what we consider to be the 20 most disruptive sectors in mobility, chosen what we consider to be the five most interesting private companies in each of these sectors, and invited the CEOs and/or founders of these companies to discuss (and frequently to debate) what is important in their markets. The mission of the conference is provide a structured framework such that 100 of the best and brightest CEOs of the most innovative start-ups in the most interesting sectors can provide participants with a robust understanding as to where the industry is headed. Notably, there are no company specific presentations.
