The MBLT program included eight consecutive sessions. Guests of the event learned which new business models are worth keeping an eye on, whether or not mobile banks will eliminate physical ones, and what role Google will have in all of this. They also attended lectures about security featuring iOS and Android specialists and presentations on getting in tune with one’s audience and when smartphones will revolutionize the tourism industry.
