MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This November a nationwide audience will gather to share, learn and discuss the latest trends in technology, marketing and strategy at the annual MobCon US mobile conference hosted by MentorMate. The first three keynotes announced for 2015 are:
+ Susan Panico, VP of Sales Marketing, Pandora
+ Heather Kennedy, Director of Customer Success, Fitbit
+ Melissa Pint, Director of Technology Services, Target
"The best in their field are ultimately the best teachers. That's what we aim to do at MobCon, share knowledge culled from 14 years designing, developing and staffing digital solutions," says MentorMate CEO Björn Stansvik, founding sponsor of MobCon US.
In confirming that the first three keynotes are women, MobCon US has achieved the balance of diversity and content so many tech industry events struggle to find. Award-winning journalist Amy Vernon has also been selected to emcee the event. "Giving more women the microphone is pivotal to welcoming the diversity of thought leadership MobCon was created to inspire," says MobCon Executive Director Tom Clemens.
The conference draws top innovators in digital strategy and product development, featuring more than 30 sessions in four educational tracks. Supporting startup culture is also an integral element of MobCon. During the mobile app competition, MobDemo, competitors will pitch their ideas to the audience and vie for $50,000 awarded in prizes.
MentorMate, host of MobCon, has long been recognized as a leader in the app development community. The company was recently highlighted by Clutch, a Washington, D.C. research firm, as an early leader in wearable app development.
