We are glad to announce that the Israel Mobile Summit is back in town! Entering its third year, the summit is *the* mobile event of the year - it is a full day event that is a true celebration of the Israeli mobile industry featuring keynotes from top speakers, panels about the hot mobile topics, mobile exhibition and a startup contest of the hottest Israeli mobile startups!
While most of our events are completely free, the Summit is a full day event held in a great venue with a full lunch buffet, and that comes with a price - but we are keeping prices down thanks to our great sponsors and there are some discount codes sent in the MoMoTLV Meetup group and the MoMoTLV Facebook group.
Some early bird tickets are still available so hurry to register here! (The summit was sold out last year so don't wait to the last minute..)
And if you have a cool mobile app, game or technology we recommend to enroll to the summit annual startup contest - finalists get a free booth at the summit as well as 5-minutes of fame to pitch their startup in front of our international expert jury. Deadline is May.16 - so hurry to apply here.
Note that the Summit is on a Tuesday but we will have a very festive MoMoTLV event the Monday before, and all in all it will be a week packed with mobile events.
We also have 2 great workshops for you this year, these require seperate registration from the summit and are more pricy, but the 2 experts delivering them are worth it...:
- Lean UX Workshop by Eric Reiss, a world renowned UX expert
- The Perfect Pitch Workshop by Jeff Robinson the super-mentor
See you all at the Summit!
