NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mobile Leaders Alliance (MLA) introduces MLA Sessions, an innovative new educational series Set to launch in NY on October 4th, during this year's Advertising Week.
Last year, global mobile ad spend hit $5.3 billion and, in 2012, smartphone penetration increased nearly 40% year over year. Soon there will be more mobile phones in the world than people and while 83% of startups planned to hire in 2011, 25% of them reported difficulties with recruiting employees and managing talent; making it one of the top five (5) barriers of growth for startups (source: Silicon Valley Bank Startup Outlook 2011).
This intimate classroom experience will provide attendees the opportunity to learn mobile first planning techniques and best practices from seasoned professionals working across the mobile ecosystem. "The demand for marketers to understand the mobile platform continues to grow as mediums converge. MLA Sessions offers an intimate, interactive environment conducive for education and a curriculum typically only found in higher learning institutions. This is a must-attend for media professionals looking to elevate their careers to the next level." –Dan Wittmers, Founder/CEO – Mobile Leaders Alliance
