Mobile Application Stores Conference At CTIA With A Great Lineup of Speakers

Ajit Jaokar, friend and co-presenter of our LTE course at the University of Oxford has a couple of interesting events coming up over the next couple of months. Needless to say that I am more than happy to help spreading the word:

At the upcoming CTIA, Ajit's company Futuretext is producer of the Mobile Application Stores, Strategy and Deployment conference and is proud to announce an all-star speaker lineup for this unique event. Mobile Application Stores is a partner seminar of International CTIA WIRELESS I.T. and Entertainment October 8th in San Diego.

Mobile Application Stores is the only conference to focus exclusively on the business of mobile applications and will focus on the tremendous opportunities in the mobile apps stores ecosystem. The event is designed to give a complete understanding of how to capitalize on this dynamic market.

Featured speakers for the event include:

  • Dr. Jin-Sung Choi Ph.D, Senior Vice President, Head MC Global
  • Product Planning Team, LG Electronics Korea
  • George Linardos Vice President, Product Management, Media, Nokia
