Yelp, LinkedIn, & Pandora weigh-in on today’s most pressing mobile topics

MobileBeat 2013 is less than two weeks out, and it’s nearly sold out. We’re gathering the industry’s brightest minds who are looking beyond design to implement a fully integrated Mobile Experience.

Join us on July 9-10 for two days packed with high-level discussions, breakouts, exclusive announcements, and networking sessions. We’re excited to announce the following speakers:


jeremy-stoppelman-yelpJeremy Stoppelman, CEO and cofounder, Yelp
On day one of MobileBeat, Stoppelman will put on his “head of product” hat to explore how Yelp designed its app to help users to not only find and connect with local businesses but to also close the loop on local business transactions.

Session: “Yelp on Mobile — From Discovery to Closing the Transaction Loop”

Linkedin is doubling down on mobile, with a recent redesign across all mobile properties, mobile-focused acquisitions, and strengthening engagement with a strong content focused play. Deep is joining us to talk about the strategic value of this mobile experience emphasis and how professional content and user experience is keeping Linkedin a dominant player.

Session: “Linking in Mobile Experience and User Enjoyment”

No matter the application, speed is what you need. If your app lags at 1 million users, your business won’t make it to 1.5 million and will likely fail. Get practical advice from Tom, along with Evernote CTO and Pivotal Labs COO, who’ve beat back lag and scaled from a million users to more than 50 million.

Session: “Scale Is Beautiful, Implementation Is Key”


Which upcoming releases and trends will help you make your design even sleeker, your technology stacks even faster, and your revenue streams even safer? Who is claiming the eyeballs and wallets by providing the best Mobile Experience? What are the top brands in the world doing to keep up with this shift, and who are they working with?
