Xconomy Forum: Mobile Madness New York

Every business is now in the mobile business. Don’t believe it? Just check out the tablets and e-readers available from companies like Toys ‘R’ Us, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon–not to mention Google, Samsung, Microsoft, and Apple. Take a look at how Starbucks and Square are teaming up on mobile payment technology. See the flood of companies struggling to make sure their mobile strategy is moving in the right direction.

Then recall that the first iPhones were sold a mere five years ago. Mobile computing has transformed how we live our daily lives. But what are the emerging opportunities and strategies for innovators as this diverse sector really ramps up? How will the next five years play out as devices and applications are seamlessly integrated into everything we do–whether at home, work, or play?

Join us for Xconomy’s Mobile Madness New York, a half-day forum of interactive talks and chats that will showcase the top investors, entrepreneurs, and executives tackling the next big ideas in mobile computing–from media and advertising to commerce, finance, big data, analytics, entertainment, and beyond.
