The proliferation of mobile devices can no longer be denied. You've got a business but want to know how to take advantage of this mobile thing. With all the buzzwords and changing tides, what can business owners do to get on the mobile bandwagon? And what about social and local? Where do they all fit in and how? With so many people using their mobile devices to make purchases and to inform purchase decisions, check in and stay in touch, small to mid-sized business owners need to be informed on how to use these technologies to their advantage. In this informative panel, we gather together a group of thought leaders who will discuss and offer successful strategies and resources to help business owners take their businesses into the mobile age. We'll talk to thought leaders and innovators to give business owners some tools to navigate the social, local and mobile landscape to effectively improve their bottom lines.
