IDM Digital Council Chair, Steve Kemish comments:
"With more mobile phones in use on the planet than toothbrushes, there is no doubt that mobile is the most talked-about area of digital marketing right now, and marketers should be acting now to track its growth and explore how they can use it from here on in. This event will showcase brands at the forefront of mobile marketing, giving insight, advice and inspiration on just how to harness and make the most of this exciting new space."
Zina Manda, director of mardevdm2 and event sponsor, adds:
“In the B2B world, mobile devices are often the first point of entry for an email message, social media touch point or web search. So it’s critical that we help educate B2B marketers about the best ways to incorporate mobile channels into their overall marketing strategy. That’s why we believe in the value of IDM events and support their role and message in the market.”
A recent study commissioned by Barclays Corporate found that almost 63% of all mobile owners currently use their device during the online purchase process and reports that mCommerce would grow by 55% in the next five years. By 2021, according to the study, it could be worth £19bn. Further research by UTalkMarketing, found that 32% of under 35s will use their mobile device for Christmas shopping this year, while almost nine in ten people said they would shop via their mobile more often if their retailer of choice had an app for purchasing goods.
