Kicking it off!
“Is there an app for that?”
Consumers have gone beyond the practice of simply dabbling in mobile apps: these days, they’re downright demanding them. For gamers, it’s about passing the time and being social. For others, it’s about accomplishing everyday tasks on the go — like checking bank statements and catching up on the latest news. If businesses don’t keep up and “go mobile,” they risk losing to competitors who will get there first.
Join us at Ray’s Boathouse on March 24 for an unforgettable evening at Twestival 2011, this month’s official event!
