Mobile Monday Tokyo Second Birthday Party by Mobikyo KK

You’re invited to MoMo Tokyo’s 2nd Anniversary Event, 25 September 2006, at KDDI’s fabulous Designing Studio (freshly updated with touch & try examples of au’s newly announced handsets). We also look forward to introducing our new sponsors: Robert Leonard and DoubleClick, who – along with continued support from Jonckers Translation & Engineering – make our Tokyo events possible.

It’s our birthday, so we’ve decided to change the evening’s format from the usual presentations and present a special expert mobile panel, who will field your free-flow open-mike questions and provide fantastic insight into “Japan Mobile: Past, Present and Future”

And since MoMo Tokyo is entering the so-called ‘Terrible Twos,’ we’ve decided that input from the local community would be in order to help us chart the future direction of the Tokyo chapter. Accordingly, we’ll ask you to fill out this (simple!) feedback form in exchange for the ever-popular (and free!) drink ticket.

Finally, a quick follow-up to last month’s ‘The Heat is On’ event: thanks to the good folks from the eNews team at IFRA Germany who attended and, by all accounts, enjoyed their evening with MoMo followed by a super study week in Tokyo. Yoroshiku!
