But why should you attend the Mobile Apps Conclave?
Speaking about the mobile revolution that is currently underway, Vishal Singhal, CMO, CellStrat, says, "Mobile is the industry of this decade. Mobile has taken world by storm. The feature phone growth is fast evolving into smartphone growth driven by the emergence and popularity of the mobile web and those tiny ubiquitous "apps" - hundreds of thousands of them literally. The mobile web is upending so many industries, it is breathtaking to say the least. Many of these businesses are succumbing to the trend which the venerable firm Apple started - businesses like news and media, advertising, gaming, productivity, publishing, telecom, entertainment, commerce, financial services or healthcare..the list goes on and on. Whoever you are, whereever you are - either have an app and a mobile media strategy or be prepared to loose substantial traction in the marketplace - because, indeed, your customers are app savvy even if you are not.
You are on the road and want to check nearby promotions, there are many apps for that; you want to track your supply chain, many apps for that too; track social network updates; many apps there as well; there is even an app for confessing to God. Apps are orchestrating the growth in intelligent smartphones; the next playground is in tablets followed by computers. Are you ready for the brave new world of mobile and mobile tablets? That's the question."
