WIPJam @ MWC App Planet - Agenda is up!

Mobile World Congress is coming up VERY soon!  Yikes.   It’s  time to go through the checklist:
- airfare booked - check
- room booked - check
- signed up for WIPJam - check!

Wait a minute….  are you telling me you you haven’t done any of these yet :-0

Well - you are in luck!  Because WIP is a Mobile World Congress App Planet Partner, it’s not too late to get yourself signed up and even get some good deals.

FIRST the travel

Hotel deals: MWC has identified several hotels in Barcelona that do not require a minimum stay. This is perfect for developers and guests that will only be attending  a specific App Developer Conference or a limited portion of the Congress.

Airfare deals: Save up to 30% on domestic and up to 20% on international travel to Barcelona between 10 February 2010 and 23 February 2010 with Spanair and the Star Alliance Network.

There are also lots of great apartments around to share.  We know a few folks who are looking for some roomies - let us know if you’d like to connect.

NOW for WIPJam and FREE Passes to MWC!

WIP has 200 Guest/Exhibit passes for entry to MWC2010, to give to eligible developers to attend(that’s a 599 Euro value).  What’s an eligible developer you ask? We will favor small companies, you must attend WIPJam, and you have to write something creative on the WIPJam registration page!

Why attend WIPJam?

Well - you wouldn’t ask that if you were a Jam veteran!  It’s a great place to learn about mobile development, participate in discussions to find out information really relevant to YOU, and to meet and connect with LOTS of people in the mobile developer ecosystem that can start making a difference in your business right way.

    I am an iPhone developer and would very much like to come to WIP Jam @ MWC in Barcelona.

    When will you be giving out the free tickets for developers? I don’t want to book a flight and hotel if I cannot get a ticket to MWC :( .

    Hi Jennifer,
    Book your ticket and join us! If you are on the list early enough you will definetly get a ticket. We’ll be sending out information on the MWC reg very soon - just sorting out all the procedures.
    Best, Caroline (WIP)
