“Mobile” dominates at ACTE Global Education Conference

In my previous post I mentioned my new nickname, “The Eruption.” I’ll give you one more hint why; it’s not because my mobile phone is always blowing up. If you want to talk about an explosion, however, I am incredibly happy to say that the discussion around the value of mobile certainly exploded onto the scene this week at the ACTE Global Education Conference. As you know, we talk about this incessantly on Carrying On. In fact, we kicked off the mobile discussion in May 2008, when we launched the first version of the Mobile Personal Assistant. Just click on these links to see how our mobile offering has helped innovative customers like Gore and The Advisory Board Company increase adoption, drive ROI and satisfy their travelers.

You still a skeptic? If so, I strongly suggest you start reading about this topic on Tnooz and also start following what leading travel tech experts like Norm Rose have to say. Next week I’ll be hosting an exciting webinar with NBTA entitled “The ROI of Mobile for Travel Programs.” We’ve assembled an amazing panel of experts (see below) that will not only prescribe practical recommendations, but will also provide some thoughts on what the future holds for this nascent technology.
