Sponsormob’s experience at Buzzness MobileJune 9th, 2011 by Talya
Although the event is still going on today, I spent yesterday at the first day of the exhibition at Buzzness Mobile in Paris to explore the event and broaden Sponsormob’s reach in the French market. The event itself was somewhat small in comparison to other events we attend, but it was still worthwhile, as I was able to make some new acquaintances with companies based or operating in Paris. Ad agencies, app developers, mobile solution providers, and other companies were present at the exhibition, ranging from French start-ups (such as ellefan, a new location-based shopping app geared towards women) to more established international companies such as Motricity (a US-based mobile solutions provider with operations around the world).
Even though the event was modest in size, it was quite nice, and the exhibitors were also friendly and welcoming (meaning they were patient with my novice-level French and also spoke English without hesitation – very impressive!). Perhaps the best part of the event was that it took place at Espace Cardin, which is centrally located – one street away from the Champs Elysees and close to the Grand Palais and the Jardin Tuileries. The only negative aspect of the trip was that it was too short – one night in Paris is never enough! To see pictures of the event, please visit Flickr.
By the way, speaking of French, our website has now been translated into French. So you can not only find out about us in German and English, but French as well. Enjoy!
