Mobile Miscellany 29th November 2013 - Santa's Sack is Stuffed with Competitions

In this miscellany: win a stand at CeBIT 2014, plus enter the Smart UK competition for the UK's most innovative mobile company, and win pitching support, media events and a free pass to MWC 2014 ...

It's downhill to the end of the year now, with parties galore and all the usual seasonal fun.
Big thanks to everyone contributed to this year's events, our wonderful sponsors and speakers and a specially big shout out to the fabulous, gorgeous volunteers who have so kindly helped make the events run smoothly.  Thanks to everyone for their continued interest and attendance.

MoMoLo has now entered its eighth year and we're working on a programme of events for the first half of next year. We'll most likely give everyone a chance to settle down after the New Year by kicking off in late-ish Jan. We're looking at building on our established event formulas (formulae if you prefer), we're looking at new locations and in general thinking about how we should be developing everything to track the wonderfully volatile and ever-changing mobile landscape.

If you have thoughts about this, want to volunteer, sponsor or in any other way contribute to the now venerable Mobile Monday London community, why don't you drop us a line? We'd love to hear from you

Win a stand at CeBIT
ICT KTN, the Santa of free stand space, has another great opportunity for you - this time for a stand at CeBIT 2014.  Small & Medium Enterprises need to apply by 23rd Decermber 2014. The shortlisted applicants will then go through to one of two finals events held mid to end January.
