TripAdvisor, JiWire, MTV Networks, eBay, Google, AT&T Interactive, OMD and More Unite in San Jose this October at The Location Business Summit

(PRWEB) August 08, 2011

At present, the location industry giants have a firm grip on the market space. However, with the influx of start-ups and innovative companies coming to the fore, a key thought on their minds is how to establish a successful strategy for survival. This is clearly an issue which needs addressing, alongside whether or not LBS service providers are really answering the needs of advertisers and brands.

The Location Business Summit, being held on October 18-19, San Jose as part of the LocNav USA 2011 show, is back to answer the needs of the location industry.

The topics up for discussion this year range from Location Based Advertising, what the brands, agencies and marketers desire from LBS providers and vice versa, to Payments and M-Commerce, exploring NFC technology. The agenda also examines where the ROI in social location is, and how to optimize reach and relevancy with local and hyper-local search.

Not only will the Location Business Summit be attracting the location ecosystem, but this year TheWhereBusiness are co-locating it with their 7th annual Beyond Navigation event, set to bring the entire navigation industry under one roof. Alongside this, they are also offering over 8 interactive workshops and a Get Funded Show included in the conference pass.

VP North America for TheWhereBusiness, Naomi Hands commented, ?Not only has the Location Business Summit hit the spot with the agenda, but the speaker line up this year is by far the best around. With over 300 senior level executives attending, this event is offering the perfect platform for cross-pollination networking across the navigation and location industry?.

The high level calibre of speakers include MTV/Viacom, Google, Factual, JiWire, Expedia Worldwide, eBay, Booyah, AT&T Interactive, Yahoo!, Geotoko, Nokia, Urban Mapping and many many more.

Naomi also commented ?To top it off this year, we have over 8 interactive workshops taking place to back up the themes and topics discussed at the conference. With such support from the LBMA, The Location Forum, the WCA, and the MMA, it really is an event not to be missed out on?.

Registration for the event is now open, with a special discount available until August 12th. One ticket allows access to both conferences, The Get Funded Show and all workshops.
