Mobile March Conference Is Back For 2011

Organizers of Mobile March today announced the agenda for it’s second annual mobile event will be held on March 19, 2011 at the Best Buy Corporate Campus. The name Mobile March denotes not only the month in which it takes place, but also emphasizes the ongoing advancement and growth of mobile technology and the related lifestyle. Its dual track format includes more sessions than last year and will continue to offer education and information in both the Mobile Development and Mobile Business areas. In addition attendee registration includes access to Mobile March’s Mobile 3D: Demos, Dinner and Drinks featuring locally developed mobile technology the preceding night, March 18th, at CoCo in downtown St. Paul.

According to Mobile March’s Justin Grammens, “Mobile continues to grow rapidly and offers so much opportunity for developers and business. We feel we’ve expanded and increased the value of Mobile March significantly.” According to Mobile March’s Phil Wilson, “From President Obama down, with all of the talk about innovation, we believe mobile represents a clear example of that innovation and that the Twin Cities is home to leaders in both mobile development and use.”

The agenda, available online at, includes Mobile Development sessions addressing the development of applications for the new Windows 7 Phone with Microsoft’s Jeff Brand, HTML 5 and the Mobile Web with Mark Nutter from Area Studios, 4G, as well as an iPhone – Android Showdown with Recursive Awesome’s own Phil Olson and Rory Lonergan.

The non-technical Mobile Business track includes Cracking the Code: QR Codes and Coupons with MixMobi’s Lisa Foote and guests, Location Based Services: Mayors to Marketing with Christopher Lower of Sterling Cross Communications, and Grill Yourself, a session about what you need to know when developing a mobile app for business. The track also includes Tablet’s Mean Business with Pioneer Press Tech Writer and author Julio Ojeda-Zapata and to end off the day, an excellent session entitled On the Campaign Trail With Mobile Technology by Mark Jenkins Marquis Mobile Solutions.

The Landscape of Mobile Discussion with Pearson VUE’s Peter Pascale and a Keynote to be announced soon will target both Development and Business attendees.
