Wanted: A Few Good Mobile Demos

3/5/09Follow @wroush

Here at Xconomy, we love our iPhones and Blackberries and Windows Mobile smartphones, and we love the local companies that create cool software and services for them. In fact, we love them so much we’re organizing an April 7 conference on “The Future of Mobile Innovation in New England“—and we’re looking for companies who want to show off their latest, coolest technologies in a series of two-minute, onstage “mobile bursts.”

If your company is based in New England, has a mobile application or service that can be demonstrated live (no PowerPoints), and you’d like to nominate yourselves to participate, please send me a note at wroush@xconomy.com. We’ll pick five or six companies, who’ll have a chance to show their wares to a big audience at Microsoft’s New England R&D Center in Cambridge, MA.

The meeting, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with a networking reception to follow, is designed to focus on fundamental questions about the technologies and business models that will keep the mobile industry growing through the recession and beyond. It’ll be jam-packed with keynote presentations, panel discussions, and intimate chats with local mobile-technology luminaries and investors, including representatives of Apperian, Enterprise Mobile, Charles River Ventures, FitnessKeeper, Flybridge Capital Partners, Google, Microsoft, the MIT Media Lab, MocoSpace, Quattro Wireless, Skyhook Wireless, Veveo, and Vlingo. The full agenda for the conference is here. If you’re interested in attending, you can buy advance tickets here.

Until March 13, tickets are available at the early bird rate of $125; after that the price goes up to $195. Student tickets are available for $50, and students are eligible for scholarships under Flybridge’s Stay in MA program.
