Mobile Monday March 16 – Productivity & Entertainment

Our next event is set for March 16th at the Designing Studio with a couple of great presentations and mega mixer afterwards at the Wired Cafe. Considering the ‘current economic situation’, see this fantastic keynote by Anssi Vanjoki for MoMo Peer Awards at MWC in Barcelona, we are inspired and agreed – these are the times when winners are made.. 😎

A few notes of interest: We are thrilled to announce our co-op on related industry upcoming events with the Inter-Embassy Mobile Forum and the good folks at AdTech. We have added links here for our FaceBook and Linkedin groups while the new MoMo Ambassador team is hard at work planning our next event targeted for May 18th. See you all again soon!
