Mobile Jam Session Las Vegas

sidebar_220_x_851.jpgAfter a very successful first Mobile Jam Session during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Caroline Lewko of the Wireless Industry Partnership (WIP) and Rudy De Waele of dotopen / mTrends are ‘jazzed’ about working together again to bring you the second Mobile Jam Session at the Las Vegas Convention Center – N255 on Monday, March 31, 2008 (9:00 am - 6:00 pm).

But first we wanted to thank all participants for their contribution to our first event, as a sponsor, a speaker, a session leader, or as an active participant. In the morning, we welcomed +50 developers to set the tone for the rest of the day, during lunch more attendants joined us for the afternoon session which ended up packed with +120 participants. This exceeded by far our expectations!

The event is free of charge for all participants, coffee breaks, lunch and networking cocktail included. We’re looking for passionate, exciting and talented developers. If you’d like to participate, let’s us know why you’d like to attend and add your name and suggested topic to the invitation list. Candidates who sign up for Mobile Jam Session before March 15 will receive a free CTIA pass!

What’s it all about…

  • Infused with the spirit of the early days of Jazz, the Mobile Jam Session is a day to inspire new ideas and innovate solutions to existing challenges. The purpose is focused, but the agenda is improvised along the way.
  • It all starts as we open up the mobile ecosystem and connect experienced and talented developers, with industry experts and decision makers. We all know this is often difficult at big conferences, but the Mobile Jam Session makes it possible. We propose an invitation and referral only to get the right mix of participants.
  • Most importantly this event is driven by developers – what they want to hear, who they want to talk to, what they want to say. It’s no secret that the industry needs the emerging companies to lead with innovation, to leverage resources and to help change the game. With the right beat, let’s get ready to listen!

Speakers & Topics & Format

Topics are chosen ahead of time by the participants when they register. We match that to industry leaders and include developers as discussion leaders too, to get the right mix of big company expertise and hands –on experience.

The format includes a mix of developer only mixing; an interactive panel; and our unique “Improv” sessions where 5-6 discussion leaders facilitate small groups of participants.

See the agenda and pictures from the session in Barcelona.

We’ll get back soon with more details on this. Drop us a line at info AT mobilejamsession DOT com if you’re interested in sponsoring our next event.

We are passionate about fostering a free environment for collaborative creation among all the different players in the value chain. We know streamlining communication will make it easier for our young companies to innovate and get to market faster and smarter.

New tunes often come from unlikely associations, so… Jam on!

Caroline and Rudy.
