PRESS RELEASE: 6Sight Mobile Imaging Summit Expands to Europe
JACKSON, Mich. – 6Sight® Conferences LLC will expand its conference offerings to include a Mobile Imaging Summit in Malmo Sweden on November 15-17, 2011, with event co-hosts Scalado and Invest in Skåne.
The 6Sight Mobile Imaging Conference is a companion to the 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference held each year in the US. The event in Sweden will focus on camera phones and the rapidly evolving innovations in mobile imaging, whereas the US event encompasses all aspects of imaging from photo image capture, photo publishing, social imaging, and mobile imaging.
“We had two successful Mobile Imaging Summit conferences in Europe in 2004 and 2005, and have been looking for the right opportunity to return,” said Joe Byrd, president of 6Sight Conferences. “When we were approached by Fadi Abbas, chief marketing officer and co-founder of Scalado, and Daniel Kipowski, business development manager of Invest in Skane, to bring our 6Sight Conference back to Europe, we welcomed the opportunity. There is so much mobile imaging innovation in this part of Sweden, this location will be a great fit for our event.”
“We are delighted that 6Sight, our partner since 2002, gives us this huge recognition by bringing the most important imaging event back to Europe with us as partners” said Abbas. “With our position as the centre of gravity of imaging, we will for sure bring big players from several markets to Skane.”
“South Sweden is a hotbed for research, innovation and entrepreneurship within mobile imaging,” said Kipowski. “We are excited about this opportunity to, along with 6Sight and Scalado, show the mobile imaging leaders why companies such as Apple, RIM, Intel, and ARM all have found acquisition opportunities within this domain in South Sweden during the last two years and why companies such as Scalado have been able to mature here.”
6Sight, the imaging technology executive conference for PMA International, will hold its next 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference on June 20-22, 2011, at The Sainte Claire hotel in San Jose, Calif.
