Open Mobile Summit: Mobile First And The future of platforms, devices, and ecosystems

Annie Woodhead

The 5th annual Open Mobile Summit is less than two weeks away, and we’re getting pretty excited about it. On Wednesday, November 7th, Fjord’s co-founder and Chief Client Officer Mark Curtis will be part of a panel session “Sensored: Wearables, Wellness and Quantified Self” moderated by Venture Beat Lead Writer Dean Takahashi with speakers from BodyMedia, Striiv, and RunKeeper. The keynote line up looks to be inspirational with luminaries like Rich Miner, Android co-founder and head of Google’s VC arm; Warren East, CEO of ARM; and David Marcus, President of PayPal. Check out the full speaker line up and agenda here.

The agenda will cover how new platforms, devices and ecosystems are causing some of tech’s biggest players to re-think their mobile strategies. As Fjord’s CEO Olof Schybergson recently wrote about for Fortune, mobile-first companies are keeping tech giants up at night, and the summit will feature speakers from companies like Google, Walmart, Sephora, Samsung, ESPN, and LinkedIn discussing the challenges and opportunities ahead to keep up with mobile-first disruptors.

Other agenda highlights include:
Connecting everything – from the Connected Home to Sensors, the Quantified Self, and the Connected Car, what are the new business opportunities in the M2M and hyper connected world?
New market opportunities – from Big Data to Cloud services and Enterprise apps, what do the next big market opportunities look like – and who’s best positioned to take advantage?
The Future of Shopping – As the gap between the physical and the digital narrow, leading retailers explore the future of shopping including personal shopping, tablet commerce, and integrated experiences.
The Revolution in TV – Transforming the TV experience from mobile to multi-platform. What are the most compelling product experiences for companion TV, and how do you monetize?
Wallet wars – Mobile payments from theory to practice–Who’s winning the battle to deliver the ecosystem for mobile payments for real world goods? Who will get scale first and why?

It’s certainly going to be an awesome few days on the future of mobile in San Francisco. Hope to see you there!
