UBM Tech's inaugural Mobile Commerce World event held June 24-26, 2013 in San Francisco received high accolades from attendees and sponsors. With more than 2,600 registrants, the event greatly exceeded its attendee goals, and is the world's largest conference and expo focused on helping retailers and enterprises develop mobile commerce systems. Mobile Commerce World brought together leaders from across the entire mobile commerce ecosystem in packed session rooms and on the show floor.
With great momentum following the inaugural launch, Mobile Commerce World is partnering with UBM Live's eCommerce Expo, October 2-3, 2013 in London, the UK's largest eCommerce and mCommerce event, to create an international platform for the industry.

Keynote presentations from Walmart, Facebook, Groupon, PayPal, Visa, Rakuten and many others, offered practical advice for implementing effective mobile commerce strategies, while recognizing the barriers to adoption. Featuring in-depth analysis and industry research from firms such as Gartner, Yankee Group, IDC Retail Insights, IDC Financial Insights, Parks Associates, RSR, Information Week and others, keynotes and conference sessions comprehensively covered the state-of-the-practice in mobile commerce adoption today.

Mobile Commerce World was specifically developed to take a deep dive into all of the key business and enabling technologies necessary for a large enterprise to stay relevant and profitable in a fiercely competitive market," said Eliot Weinman, general manager, founder and conference chair of Mobile Commerce World. "The response has been tremendous and with a recognized demand in this space, we're excited to announce an international partnership with eCommerce Expo and next year's Mobile Commerce World 2014 event."
