MoNage. MoNage. MoNage.  Do you MoNage?

Come to Spring 2017 MoNage, March 21-23 in San Jose!

I am grateful to everyone who has been in contact with me and are supporting my efforts to produce Spring 2017 MoNage in San Jose, CA, March 21-23.  I’m very excited to host this conference in the heart of Silicon Valley, at the fascinating Tech Museum of Innovation.

We have limited seating available at our conference venue, so it’s never too early to sign up! Registration is now open. The registration price for this conference is very competitive (it’s a great deal for a three-day event), and special pricing is available for startups. Please contact me directly for more information.

Today the first draft of the MoNage schedule has been posted and is available for viewing from Come to MoNage and find out why I believe the next communications revolution is upon us.  The interaction between people, devices, and information has already changed.  The pace of change is rapidly accelerating, especially with the growth of AI-driven conversational interfaces. What does this mean for you as you develop, leverage and invest in the future?  Come to MoNage and find out! Our speakers are industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and critical thinkers who represent many of the leading companies helping to define the new ecosystem of communications, computing, and AI.  As with all my events, the audience is a community whose dialog only starts when we get together for Spring MoNage and continues on from there.

Here’s a quick overview of the Spring MoNage program..

On March 21st, I am hosting our first MoNage ChatBot Summit, offering ChatBot Developers updates from some of the major ChatBot server platforms and a conversation with some of the leading investors in this space. Our afternoon will provide a platform for a dozen ChatBot Developers to showcase their products and will include roundtable Q&A between the audience and the companies presenting. If you are in the ChatBot space and/or thinking of entering this industry, the one-day summit offers great value and opportunity to connect with your peers in this space. If you’re planning on attend the rest of Spring MoNage, think about adding this first day if you want to see the cutting edge of conversational interfaces.

On March 22-3, Spring 2017 MoNage Conference will bring forward our conversation about evolution of the Convosphere (our word for the conversationally-based next generation of communications and interactions). We will be taking a hard look at the state of the Conversational Interfaces. Sessions include:

– Service providers from both the wireless worlds and cable sharing their Perspectives
– Developers who look at messaging as SMS and/or IP-based services
– Leading-edge thinkers and industry experts discussing various topics related to: AI, deep learning, quantum computing, AR/VR, legal and ethical issues
– People talking about their real-life experiences with the Convosphere

I would appreciate your help in spreading the word about Spring MoNage. Those able to join us in March will have a head start in 2017 on where the Internet is headed in the next 5 to 7 years. I believe the evolution of AI-enhanced conversational interfaces will be positively disruptive and will offer huge opportunities. To me, this feels like the 1998 VoIP communications revolution all over again!!

Hope to see you in San Jose in March.
