New at Mobile Photo Connect 2017: Monetization Focus, Expanded Schedule, VIP Networking Program

Oakland, CA, May 15, 2017 — Mobile Photo Connect, the premier conference for the mobile imaging industry, today announced three key innovations for its 2017 edition (October 24-25, in San Francisco, CA): an “umbrella” focus on monetization, an expanded schedule (to 1.5 days) and an Early Bird VIP Networking program, providing extra networking opportunities to attendees who register by June 30.

The impact on monetization opportunities will be an important theme throughout the various panel discussions on leading-edge mobile imaging technologies and emerging user behavior trends.

Expanded from a single day program to a 1.5 day program to allow for more sessions and more networking time, Mobile Photo Connect 2017 will kick off with an afternoon program on October 24, followed by a networking reception and a full day program on October 25.

Early Bird VIP attendees will enjoy an exclusive networking breakfast, have the opportunity to meet with their VIP colleagues in a dedicated lounge, get published on the conference’s VIP Connect with Me page, and have priority placement of their app’s video trailer on the conference attendee app page (see last year’s app trailers). These Early Bird VIP registrants will also have an extra opportunity to be selected for the much coveted 30 app Show & Tell demo slots, from which a special jury will select four Mobile Photo Connect Award winners (see last year’s winners).

“While we are committed to offering once again a stellar line-up of innovative and thought-provoking presenters from the mobile photo and video space, the conference is more than an educational event,” according to conference chair Hans Hartman. “We specifically have the word ‘Connect” in the conference title to emphasize that attendees can make valuable connections at the conference and build partnerships with fellow senior imaging visitors – it is no surprise that several of our presenters were subsequently acquired.”

“We are very pleased that with our Early Bird VIP program we’re taking the networking value for early registrants to an even higher level.”
