PALM DESERT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mobile Shopping Summit, the annual conference where the top minds in mobile commerce meet and learn, today announced its agenda and list of keynotes and speakers for its 2016 event. The three-day event will take place from October 17 to 19 at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA.
This year’s agenda focuses on internal restructuring for efficiency, mobile customer acquisition, mobile customer retention, in-store mobile experience & POS and mobile marketing ROI.
“What makes mobile complex is that it is a research channel, a marketing channel and a sales channel all in one - and there is still a huge gap between traffic and sales,” said Greg Ashton, Mobile Shopping Conference Producer. “The show isn’t about making people buy your product solely on mobile. It is about how mobile is becoming a trusted shopping companion, influencing other channels and leading customers down the path to purchase.”
Further, Mobile Shopping Summit is proud to have former Googler and the visionary behind Google Shopping, Nitin Mangtani, to host day two of the Summit, “Get Your Kicks from Bricks & Clicks” and deliver the day’s opening address.
