MoMo 27 June: Excitement builds!

We’ll have an announcement up here in a few days with full details; in the meantime, we can say that it is the HOTTEST mobile venue in Tokyo and we are delighted with the location — and we’re sure you will be, too.

We’ll get full details on the ultra-cool location, the presenters and event timings posted shortly.

MobileMonday Italy Launches New Website

The Italian MoMo community has launched its new website to help promote their local networking events. On the site, all the information regarding past and future Mobile Mondays held in Rome and Milan are now available.

Invitation & info for the next Milan event is currently online, as well as registration procedure. According to Cristiana Piraino, “among others, the links section shows up for connecting our visitors to all the Web sites of MobileMondays of the world. In [the] near future a special new section will display presentations and news regarding previous events, with the purpose of creating a permanent showroom for knowledge sharing.”


MoMo & WTIA Tie-Up for Hong-Kong

Finnish and Hong Kong mobile industry reps. signed a cooperation agreement on 13 May in Helsinki. The ceremony was witnessed by John Tsang, the Hong Kong Secretary for Commerce, Industry and Technology. The memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed by John Chiu, the chairman of Hong Kong Wireless Technology Industry Assoc. WTIA and Jari Tammisto, CEO of Mobile Monday Oy.

Finland and Hong Kong have an opportunity to create mobile platforms for wide markets, according to Tsang, the head of the visiting trade delegation. This is a very good beginning for larger and more active cooperation between our mobile industries. We can learn much from the well developed mobile field of Finland, Tsang said.

Quick Update from MoMo Helsinki

There was quite a decent crowd out last night, Monday, 9 May, for the MoMo event in Helsinki. Jari and the guys from put on a great show and the highlight (aside from the food and drink!) was the first annual best mobile application award. The company that won, Quicklic Finland, created the “Lahti” dental appointment scheduling app that runs via SMS. I think it was the service’s simplicity that swayed the judges! You can read the full report here.
