Last year, mobile design emerged as a key differentiator. An awesome UI/UX was table stakes for businesses surviving and thriving.

But consumers are integrating phones and tablets into their lives ever more deeply. MobileBeat 2013 is gathering the latest crop of companies who are looking beyond design to implement a fully integrated Mobile Experience.

Who is claiming the eyeballs and wallets by providing the best Mobile Experience? What are the top brands in the world doing to keep up with this shift, and who are they working with? Which upcoming releases will help you make your design even sleeker, your technology stacks even faster, your revenue streams even safer?

We’ll answer these questions and more with two days of high-level discussions, breakout sessions, and exclusive announcements.
