Mobile Madness NW: Big Ticket Sale Ends Today

12/4/12Follow @curtwoodward

Want to hear from some of the best minds from around the Northwest—and beyond—as we prepare for another year of big change in mobile computing? You’re in luck: We’ve got a big sale on tickets to Mobile Madness Northwest, Xconomy’s premier year-end event.

But you’ll have to hurry, because our special sale price expires after today. Place your orders now to get the best rate for our Dec. 12 forum, which runs from 2-5:30 pm at Town Hall in Seattle. And if you’re a student or a startup employee, make sure to take advantage of your own special rates—we want everyone there to bring ideas and energy to the room

Our headline speaker is Adam Cheyer, the co-founder of Siri, who will share some of his thoughts on the innovations and challenges ahead as smartphones, tablets, and new devices continue spreading computing power into new corners of our lives. And there’s much more.

We’ll hear from folks building some of Seattle’s next marquee tech companies, including Zulily and Decide, about how the next mobile revolution is transforming commerce. We’ll talk to leaders who have first-hand experience with the Puget Sound region’s trailblazing wireless sector, including the guy running T-Mobile’s bid to build a killer consumer application. And we’ll chat with leading entrepreneurs harnessing powerful location sensors and all the data they generate, including the CEOs of Portland’s Urban Airship and Point Inside.

Investors and entrepreneurs will give you an up-close view of how they collaborate to build companies—Rahul Sood of Microsoft’s Bing Fund chatting with David McLauchlan of Buddy, and Scott Jacobson of Madrona Venture Group talking with Adam Tratt of Haiku Deck. Expect some real gems and insights into the key moments from the stories of these startups, and how investors and entrepreneurs can work together to find success.

There will also be plenty of time for networking, and when it’s all over, a fantastic, free after-party hosted by IDA Ireland, just down the street at the fantastically retro Vito’s Lounge.

Head over to our agenda page to check out the full lineup, but make sure to lock in your tickets now. We’ll see you next week!
