Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is an un-conference?

An un-conference is like a regular conference only most of the bad stuff has been eliminated. Our fundamental belief is that you learn more at an event when you’re having a dialogue rather than listening to a monologue. So, while we will have the occasional speech or panel discussion, we’ll also include interactive experiences like Virtual Reality Pods, a Shark Tank-like competition, a Mobile X Charity Lab, Roundtable Discussions, Food Trucks and more.

Who will be attending?

In addition to speakers and panelists from Google, E&J Gallo, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, CNN, Kimberly-Clark, the Atlanta Hawks and more, we’ll also have executives from Fortune 500 companies, university professors from Georgia Tech, executives from marketing agencies, venture capitalists, executives from mobile start ups, students and just about anyone else who is interested in learning how to use mobile to grow their sales and revenues.
