The only Information and Communications Technology (ICT) event assembling mobility practitioners from over 160 countries, WSA-Mobile 2013 will honor 40 of the best mobile content and applications in the world chosen by an eminent panel of international judges.
WSA-Mobile 2013 comprises a Global Congress, Gala and Exhibition – all held under the theme ‘Excellence in Mobile Content 2.0.’ The event provides a broad platform for discussing, exploring and celebrating the latest and the best mobile innovations alongside opinion leaders and experts from around the world. An eclectic mix of distinguished speakers – from Harri Koponen, COO of ‘Angry Birds’ creator Rovio Entertainment Ltd., to UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs Assistant Secretary-General Thomas Stelzer – will provide valuable insights on the role and future of mobile applications and content.
H.E. Rashed Lahej Al Mansoori, Director General of the Abu Dhabi Systems and Information Centre (ADSIC), and Prof. Peter Bruck, WSA’s Chairman of the Board, delivered opening talks to commence WSA-Mobile 2013. ADSIC, the event’s partner host, affirms that all elements have been put into place to make this one of WSA-Mobile’s most successful outings.
“The strong turnout and exceptional global support for WSA-Mobile 2013 reflects the growing importance of mobile content in particular and technology in general in social and economic development. We are eager to hear from the best in the field and share our experiences as well on the use of modern tools for achieving sustainable growth and the aspirations of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. ADSIC looks to ICT to help transform Abu Dhabi into one of the top five governments in the world, which is why we strongly support premier technology events such as WSA-Mobile,’” said H.E. Al Mansouri.
The three-day event will feature various Mobile Innovation Sessions, Keynotes, and Excellence Sessions. The final day will be punctuated by the WSA-Mobile Award Gala where eight WSA-mobile global champions for 2013 will be announced. More event details are available at events.wsa-mobile.org.
