The 2015 Mobile World Congress and 4 Years From Now conference are in full swing, with more than 80,000 participants eagerly absorbing information about new technologies, product releases, and insights from leaders in the mobile space. Each year the Mobile World Congress and 4YFN introduce even more innovative concepts and exciting updates as mobile increasingly becomes deeply and widely integrated into our lives. Publisher representatives have a strong presence at the MWC and 4YFN this year, reflecting the growth in mobile within the publishing community. Speakers from publishing companies leading the industry in mobile strategy include Mark Howard from Forbes and Mike Butcher from TechCrunch. Wibbitz Co-founder & VP Biz Dev, Yotam Cohen, was also honored with invitations to speak at both MWC and 4YFN this year.
Yotam participated in the Industries Disrupted by Mobile speaker session at 4YFN yesterday to demonstrate how publishers can utilize Wibbitz’s text-to-video technology. The session featured companies that provide a service to industries that have been greatly affected by the growth in mobile, e.g. publishers. The Wibbitz presentation received overwhelming praise from attendees. Tomorrow afternoon, Yotam will participate in the Mobile Innovation: The Next Wave speaker session at the Mobile World Congress. He will be accompanied by fellow mobile innovators that have recently stepped onto the playing field including Sylvan Waller from Alii Healthcare and Jaime Bosch Criado from Voicemod. Each speaker will have the opportunity to pitch their innovation, followed by questions from a panel of industry experts. The top innovator will be voted for by the audience, so it’s a great session for MWC attendees to get involved. Attendees can also tweet comments and questions to #MWC15INO3. Wibbitz invites publishers to the session to learn more about our ‘next wave’ technology and how it can support your mobile strategy (we wouldn’t mind if you decided to vote for us too!)
