Mobile Monday Tokyo 2014 Year-end Update

As we race to the wire, a photo-finish for this Year of the Horse, we just wanted to pass along a Great Big Thank-You to everyone for another exciting season! A good bet that many of you, like us, already have a jam-packed Bonenkai schedule, so it seemed like a much better plan to have our next gathering in early 2015 to kick-off the new year!

Mark Your Calendar For January 19th Super Shinnenkai

Full props to Blippar and Millennial Media for their support on that gig; consider this an Open Call for Sponsors, Contact Us Here, full event details coming asap. Meanwhile, our Best Wishes to All for hAPPy Holiday – Please take 1-minute to Share Your Thoughts.. 😎

MoMo Tokyo 10th Anniversary Celebrations

This year marks our 10th Anniversary of running Mobile Monday Tokyo, it seems like yesterday when we debuted at the Pink Cow in Shibuya! Over the last decade Mobile Monday has grown to 150 locations worldwide and has become a well established industry organisation. It has been our great honor and pleasure to serve as an open, friendly and valued networking platform to “Bring The Community Together” in Japan.

Looking back over the years, spanning nearly 100 events, well over 200 presenters and 5,000-plus unique attendees, our fondest memories revolve around the lessons learned and countless connections made. We’ve gathered for seasonal occasions – from Bonenkai to Matsuri – hosted speakers from companies large and small based here and overseas, and covered topics ranging across the entire mobile ecosystem. And we managed it all while operating entirely on a break-even basis with truly fantastic support from our members and volunteers.

We are thrilled to Celebrate This Milestone Together in thanks for the years of your faithful and energetic participation. Our very best regards… and biggest smiles!
