Wednesday October 29 - Final of Mobile World Congress Places Competition

A DCKTN event supported by MobileMonday London

Mobile World Congress – SMEs compete for free places!

Some of the most exciting SMEs do battle in a competition to showcase their products/solutions at the next Mobile World Congress in Barcelona!

The Digital Communications Knowledge Transfer Network (www.dcktn.org.uk) has collaborated with UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) to run a competition for free places for SMEs to showcase a solution or product on the UKTI stand at next year's Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona.

The judges have selected sixteen SMEs which entered the competition to go forward to the next stage and have invited eight companies to each of two events. At each event companies will be given three minutes to make a 'pitch' to a panel of judges made up of two Digital Communications KTN representatives and two UKTI representatives. Each pitch will be given without the use of Powerpoint charts, but otherwise in whatever form the presenter thinks appropriate. At the end of each pitch there will be up to seven minutes for the judges to question the presenter.

At the end of the pitches there will be a buffet supper reception. This will provide an opportunity for all those present to network and, in particular, for the eight companies to say more about their products and solutions using A1 posters that they will be invited to produce and bring with them. These presentations will not form part of the judging process, but are to enable the eight companies to let a wider audience know more about their product or solution. Once the judges have reached their decision, the winners will be announced. The evening will then continue to provide a further opportunity for networking.

Doors open at 6.00 pm for a 6.30 sharp start, at the CBI Conference Centre, Centre Point, Just by Tottenham Court Road Tube station.

Free to attend, registration is required at Yahoo! Groups if you are a member of MobileMonday London, or by email to DCKTN.
