Say what you will about Bay Area weather, but as we kick off our second Mobile Summit event at the Cavallo Point resort in Sausalito, things are looking a bit like heaven.

We’ve collected some of the brightest minds in the industry to discuss pressing issues like the mobile platform wars and the mobile commerce revolution. But we can’t deny that part of the draw is the gorgeous location right by the Golden Gate Bridge.

The event is set to begin this afternoon with panels featuring speakers from Verizon Wireless, Fjord, Iddiction, and TapJoy. But the real meat of the Summit takes place tomorrow, where we have some major fireside chats lined up, including discussions with Mercedes’ CEO and Nokia’s head of innovation. We’ll also have a variety of breakout sessions to spur on conversation.

Amid the discussions, drinks, and frolicking by the Bay, we’re hoping that the Mobile Summit will once again be a place where major decisions affecting the mobile industry will be made.

If you’re among the select few joining us at the Summit, we welcome you. For everyone else, you can catch our event coverage starting this afternoon.
