After launching our new website
in April of this year, the Americas Mobility
Conference is also getting a makeover. Our conference theme this year
is “Be bold,” so naturally, you’ll find us taking some chances, based on your
feedback on past conferences, and trying a few new conference changes to AMC this
Our new close time – adjourning at 11:45 on Friday – giving you more time
to get back home and start impressing your co-workers with your newfound
innovation skills and vision for the future.
Variety is the spice
of the new AMC event format this year. The addition of 30-minute educational
sessions provides opportunities for shorter learning opportunities and to
expand the topics you can explore. We are also implementing pop-up meetings,
which are impromptu gatherings in between your scheduled activities in a
designated lounge area designed for relaxed and informal conversation.
Throughout the conference, look for push notifications from the mobile app
about spontaneous conversations on trending topics.
You told us you’d like
more time to connect and converse with your colleagues, business partners,
prospects, and clients. Because of our new close time on Friday,
we have extended marketplace hours on Thursday. In addition to our marketplace
hours, we’ve added more time for networking during the Thursday luncheon
With new disruptions
facing our industry, now is the time for all of us to sharpen our innovation
planning skills. As our industry faces a period of rapid change, headline
speakers Peter Sheahan and sports franchise pioneer Susan
O'Malley will provide insights for us all on navigating disruption,
innovating through changing times, and charting your business’ unique path
forward. Additionally, a new “innovation workshop,” hosted by YP40, will take
participants through the innovation process, revealing the secret sauce to
tackling any business problem.
Our President and CEO,
Peggy Smith, will be hosting a video series onsite with industry leaders to
glean rapid insights into trends, challenges and solutions for the Americas
region. A “video wall” comprised of multiple screens will also run ongoing
highlights, as well as interviews with program planning committee members about
the sessions they designed.
Of course the best
part about AMC is you. You make
the conference. So bring your bold ideas and wear your inspiration cap, and
we’ll see you in Dallas – register now.
