Rating: Yup, the registration process has now opened
Historically, the GSMA always used to delay the registration process for media representatives for a while after regular attendees were allowed to register their interest in attending its flagship event – the Mobile World Congress. However, this is not the case with MWC Barcelona 2013. The registration process opened for absolutely everyone today [November 13th 2012]. Press need to go here. GoMobile News would urge all of its readers to register as soon as possible because this is very definitely a not-to-be-missed event and regarded by many as the place to be if you even remotely regard yourself as a shaker and mover in the mobile/cellular world.

So, it might get a bit busy at our GoMo News Blender sponsored by Velti and Diffusion PR as we have already sold (they are free -but for want of a better word) 1000 tickets!!
But first what is the Blender?
The Blender will take place in Marmalade Bar from 6pm on Tuesday 28th February. Its a fun place for anyone to come and have a drink and some food!
Well there will be lots of it. Velti has put a huge amount of money behind the bar for Wine, Beer and Cava or soft drinks.
Diffusion PR has put a wad of dosh down for … cocktails. I believe there will be a choice of four or five and there will be 400 plus cocktail vouchers up for grabs.
Well we have about 1200 slices of Pizza. There will be all types available from meat to veggie. The Pizza will be served until it runs out from about 7pm. Probably in hourly shifts until there is none left. Continue reading
[ February 28, 2012; 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. ] Velti CEO Alex Moukas, will be participating in the first advertising session of the Mobile World Congress entitled Mobile in the Marketing Mix: Does having an app count?
DATE: Tuesday, February 28
TIME: 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
LOCATION: Hall 5, Auditorium 3
Mobile has the potential to be all things to all men when it comes to advertising. Big screens and fast networks mean mobile could compete for eyeballs with TV and movies; search puts it up against the fixed internet; SMS and messaging are possible replacements for direct mail. But is such a blanket approach the right one? What is the ‘right’ use of mobile in advertising? Does the contextual nature of mobile actually mean that we should be talking about marketing, not advertising?
This session will ask how mobile should fit into a brand’s cross-platform marketing strategy. It will consider how we should conceptualize mobile, whether in terms of its potential to create a short-term splash or to build and support long-term consumer engagement.
