This session of Mobile Monday Detroit will focus on topics that are extremely important for any organization challenged to satisfy the mobile service needs of the mobile masses, including: financial considerations for building out the necessary infrastructure, technology considerations explained to non-technical decision-makers, and everyone's favorite... how can venues utilize mobile technologies to deliver value?

Speakers for the evening will include:

• David Mexicotte, Mobility / Wireless Specialist for Cisco Systems
