Conference to Feature i-Mode and Wireless Telecoms in Japan

Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Strategic Research Institute

    NEW YORK, April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- A major new conference, Mobile Telecoms
 Japan, is coming to San Francisco July 11-13 at the Sheraton-Fisherman's
 Wharf.  Organized by Strategic Research Institute, the event will feature the
 leading Japanese wireless carriers, NTT DoCoMo, KDDI, and J-Phone.
     The first American conference to focus on the wireless revolution in
 Japan, it will provide in-depth information about i-Mode, as well as its
 important Japanese competitors, Ezweb and J-Sky. These are the most successful
 and advanced wireless services in the world, and they are on the verge of
 rapid international penetration with the help of their international partners.
     Ron Berg, Senior Vice President with Strategic Research Institute,
 commented, "We are pleased to have an outstanding roster of international
 speakers who can give insight into the Japanese carriers' profitable business
 strategies and early deployment of new technologies.  This conference should
 be ideal for anyone seeking to learn from the Japanese experience and apply it
 in other parts of the world."
     Japan has rapidly advanced to the forefront of mobile telecommunications,
 highlighted by the incredible growth of DoCoMo's i-Mode subscriber numbers,
 from zero to 20 million in just two years.  A major focus of the conference
 will be i-Mode, and an entire day-long seminar is designed for developers and
 programmers seeking an advanced understanding of i-mode architecture and
 capabilities.
     This leading-edge event goes beyond the latest press announcements to
 provide an in-depth understanding of the factors leading to the growth in
 mobile services in Japan -- from both a technological and a business strategy
 perspective. Speakers will include well-known, independent analysts such as
 Tim Clark - Strategy Director, The Web Connection, Andrea Hoffmann - Associate
 Consultant, EGIS K.K., and David Kahaner - Asia Technology Information
 Program; and the technology pioneers from Sun Microsystems, Access Systems and
 Xmarc.  For a full agenda see http://www.srinstitute.com/ck101.html.
