TechnoBuffalo is an official media sponsor of next week’s MobileBeat 2011 conference in San Francisco, CA. Which is great for two reasons: First, it means I’ll be there checking out the panels, speakers, and other goings-on at both MobileBeat and its sister conference, GamesBeat. Second, it means that if you want to come too, you can get 20% off your registration fee by using our special promo code.
Register online at: http://mobilebeat2011.eventbrite.com/
And use the code “VB-Buffalo” for your 20% discount.
MobileBeat’s theme this year is 4G. They’ve got a pretty killer lineup of speakers if you’re interested in the business side of 4G, mobile, and the near-term future of portable computing. Between high speed networks, high-powered smartphones and tablets, and the coming wave of mobile wallet solutions, it stands to reason that mobile will continue to be big business for some time to come across a wide range of fields.
Speakers include executives from Google, Zynga, Sony, NVIDIA, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and PayPal, to name a few. There’s also a startup competition “where 20 innovative mobile startups will present new and disruptive mobile products onstage in front of 700+ attendees and an expert panel of judges.” And you’ll get to rub elbows with a bunch of venture capitalists, mobile execs, developers and journalists.
If you’re signed up, let me know in the comments and I’ll keep an eye out for you next Tuesday and Wednesday. If you’re not signed up but think you’re interested, click on over to the conference microsite now – registration is almost at capacity. And thanks to the folks at MobileBeat and VentureBeat for having us onboard as a partner!
