Mobile 360 North America keynote panel on stage

What’s New for Mobile 360 Series – North America?

The North America chapter of the GSMA’s Mobile 360 Series is coming up soon, so here’s a little insight into what’s new and what you can expect for the event taking place from the 27th – 29th of October in Atlanta, Georgia.

First and foremost, the event’s just moved venue to the Hilton in downtown Atlanta. Check out the event website for the latest details http://www.mobile360series.com/north-america/

We had a fantastic first year in 2014 and we’re building on that success for 2015. New for us this year is a partnership with the U.S. Department of State Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships. This collaboration will see the co-location of their mWhat? event with Mobile 360 – North America which will take place on Thursday the 27th of October.

For the first time, we’re also bringing a live pitch contest to the event through mWhat? We’re really excited to see the next generation of thinkers, entrepreneurs and innovators on stage as they pitch their concepts to a panel of established mobile industry executives.

Once again, we’re excited to be partnering with Mobility LIVE! which all the delegates will have access to.

So what are we going to be talking about at this region’s instalment of the Mobile 360 Series? A whole swag of great topics from innovation & LTE development to media & entertainment, enterprise and security. Under the theme of “Creating a Connected Lifestyle”, the conference will highlight the digital and mobile innovation that are hallmarks of the region and will explore new technology developments and strategies that will drive the continued growth of mobile.
