Press Registration for Gartner Wireless & Mobile Summit?!?
Gartner is having their annual Wireless & Mobile Summit this month in Chicago. This is an event that I have always wanted to attend.
I am going to ask about Press Registration for the conference. I know that RSA and other large security conferences have embraced the idea of allowing bloggers to attend and post about their events. In this case, I will have to be posting from either an EVDO card or via my iPhone – which should be a natural fit for an event centered around Wireless & Mobile technologies. 🙂
The first page of the conference brochure (beyond the cover page) starts out with the phrase “Mobile Business 2.0 is coming. Are you ready?” I fully believe in Mobile Business 2.0, which is a large reason that I have beefed up my LinkedIn profile, started this blog, and created a Twitter account. I believe sharing information of this kind is extremely valuable to us as a Wireless & Mobile community. In that spirit, I hope that Gartner sincerely considers my request for a press pass as a blogger.
Sessions that look particularly interesting to me upon first glance are the ones around RFID, iPhone Forensics, and Online Society in 2020.
