Participants in the third South Asian Mobile Conference to be held on 30 May will enjoy a rare chance in valuable interaction with world’s top experts on the mobile.


According to ICTA, the hosting organisation of the conference, says that foremost among the speakers scheduled to address the conference are Tomi Ahonen, Ralph Simon and Hassan Shahid. Author, Consultant and Motivational Speaker Tomi Ahonen is the most published author on books about mobile.
The former Nokia executive has released as much as twelve books on mobile topics.  Earlier this year Forbes, in their story featuring the Top 10 Power Influencers in Mobile around the world rated Tomi number one.
Leading mobile entertainment strategist Ralph Simon whose presentation at the Second Conference was greeted with a standing ovation will be back also for the conference this year.  
Ralph Simon advises stars including Madonna, U2 and Lady Gaga on their mobile strategies.
This reflects Simon’s status as one of the world’s top experts in mobile technology and the music business.
The panel of presenters will also be further enriched this year with the participation of Mobile DATA, Mobile Advertising, Content and Products Head Hassan Shahid of Mobilink GSM Pakistan. Mobilink GSM Pakistan has more than 31.6 million subscribers.  
“The conference, the biggest of its kind in the region brings together developers of next generation mobile content and applications, visionaries, researchers, academics, investors, policy makers and civil society activists. Internationally renowned experts will address the conference sharing their experiences and vision on creativity and innovation, and their vision for the future,” ICTA CEO Reshan Dewapura says.
Registration for the conference is now on and the website for the online registration is www.southasiamobicon.org.
