Looking forward to Mobile World Congress

Looking forward to Mobile World Congress

MWC2014With more than 70,000 attendees, and in excess of 40,000 C-Level leaders in attendance last year, GSMA’s annual Mobile World Congress event is billed as the biggest mobile industry event in the world.

At last year’s Congress, Rubicon Project’s theatre session included Forrester Research’s Melissa Parrish, who spoke about Forrester’s mobile thought leadership paper we commissioned.

Melissa was joined by a range of Rubicon Project executives who discussed and examined the current status and importance of mobile advertising in front of a packed crowd.

For 2014, I’m glad to announce that our presence at the event will once again be in full force. On Wednesday 26 February, in Hall 8.0 Theatre District, Rubicon Project’s Advertising Automation Theatre will feature senior representatives from Adelphic, Dstillery, Drawbridge, Fetch, M&C Saatchi Mobile, Somo and StrikeAd, as well as myself and my colleagues Josh Wexler, Joe Prusz, Oli Whitten and Jay Sears – see below for the full programme and list of speakers.

Places are limited, but you can register your interest to attend here.

You can also come and meet us at our stand, number 8.1C10, where Rubicon Project representatives will be in attendance throughout the Congress.

So if you’re attending, please do come and say hello – we look forward to seeing you in Barcelona.
