Registration is open for the Mobile Marketing Summit: Holiday Focus 2011 on Thursday, Sept. 8 in New York with executive keynotes from Pier 1, Pittsburgh Penguins, 1800Flowers, Pandora, Equifax and Ogilvy. Mobile Marketer is the host.
The second Mobile Marketing Summit will be held Thursday, Sept. 8 in New York at the National Museum of the American Indian, a Beaux Arts Smithsonian museum in downtown Manhattan. Targeting senior executives and decision-makers at brands, ad agencies, publishers, retailers and service providers, the summit is the leading holiday mobile marketing conference. (Conference agenda below write-up.)
“With four out of ten subscribers nationwide using Web- and app-enabled mobile phones, brands and retailers can expect some surprises this holiday season,” said Mickey Alam Khan, editor in chief of Mobile Marketer and Mobile Commerce Daily.

To sit this one out is leaving money on the table.”
The New York summit is limited to around 200 executives on a first-come, first-served basis.
