What is Mobile Horizons Istanbul about?

This is an exclusive thought leadership forum that will give you a deeper insight into the future of mobile. A unique format, expert speakers, and an exclusive venue will guarantee a productive and enjoyable afternoon for all the attendees.

This invitation-only event is sponsored by Qualcomm, a world leader in smart phone technologies. We are also partnering with the most established mobile industry association, MEF, which is a global association of mobile service and technology providers.

This is the first in a series of Mobile Horizons events – future half-day events will take a deep dive on additional specific key trends.

This first edition of Mobile Horizions Istanbul, will focus on the following topics:

• MOBILE COMMERCE & RETAIL – Will the combination of mobile driven payments, couponing, loyalty, social networking and augmented reality applications kill existing retail or create a new explosion in commerce?

Latest smart devices will feature Wearable Technologies, and New Interfaces such as Glass, Watch combined with Cloud based services, and latest Brain-Machine interfaces. What will be the groundbreaking new applications and services, and how will these be monetized?

• BIG DATA & INTERNET OF THINGS (M2M)– Connected objects are multiplying by the billions causing an explosion of data. This is causing a huge transformation into a knowledge driven life, both personal and business. What can we expect in the next 10 years?

• THE NEXT BILLION – As mobile internet reaches the disconnected rural populations, how will health, agriculture, community education services impact the lives of billions in developing regions? What are the opportunities, in social entrepreneurship and social businesses?

The event will begin with an elegant, invitation-only lunch on the shores of the Bosphorus, and finish with a delightful networking cocktail cruise sponsored by Qualcomm.
