Registration is open for the second annual Mobile FirstLook: Strategy 2013 conference Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013 featuring speakers from Coca-Cola, Sephora, Nissan, Museum of Modern Art, Citi, MillerCoors, National Hockey League and JetBlue Airways. This daylong New York event is a must-attend for brands, retailers, ad agencies and publishers looking to develop and implement mobile-first strategies and tactics in 2013, a year where consumer expectations of smartphone and tablet experiences will soar.

At this exclusive summit organized by this publication at the National Museum of the American Indian across from Manhattan’s Battery Park downtown, attendees will get to listen and meet with key executives moving the needle for mobile advertising, marketing and commerce. The conference, whose agenda is below, will be limited to only 200 delegates.

“Marketers heading into 2013 have to be aware of a simple fact: a competitive strategy without a mobile-first approach will only lead to loss of customers and market share,” said Mickey Alam Khan, editor in chief of Mobile Marketer and Mobile Commerce Daily, New York.

“With more content consumed and commerce conducted on smartphones and tablets, consumers have voted with their feet with how they want to be reached, wooed, rewarded and served,” he said. “What mobile offers is the ultimate freedom and choice for consumers to make decisions as and when they want to. It is not the technology that is mobile, it is the consumer.”

This conference will help marketers set out mobile-first priorities with attention paid to mobile customer service, Big Data predictive analytics, mobile social, video pre-roll and mid-roll advertising, branding, technology affecting travel lifestyle, mobile payments and nonprofits in mobile.

Attendees will get access to all presentations made at the event.

The event is priced at $495 for the day, which includes breakfast, lunch and cocktails. Refunds will not be given 72 hours before the event or no-shows on the day of the conference.
