Two days. One hundred and eighty executives. Eight big opportunities for growth.

We’re just over a month away from the fourth annual VentureBeat Mobile Summit, and the room is filling up.

On April 14 and April 15, we’re again gathering the top 180 mobile executives to develop a blueprint for the industry’s growth in the coming year.

The Summit is now regarded as one of the most important gatherings in mobile, and was it recently in the “Top 10 Must Attend Tech Conferences in 2014″ list by Entrepreneur Magazine.
