"The mobile space is where companies are doing more and more business.

The mobile and wireless worlds are ones where entrepreneurs, investment and innovation are creating some very exciting opportunities.”
UNTETHER.talks will feature keynote presentations paired with panel or one-on-one Q&A sessions. Keynote speakers and panelists include:

UNTETHER.tv co-founder Rob Woodbridge said:
"The premise for UNTETHER.talks was simple. There is considerable confusion around mobile right now and no venue for conversation about where to start and where we are going. UNTETHER.talks is that venue and we are proud to host the first event in Canada."
UNTHETHER.talks will take place at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto. For more details visit http://untethertalks.com/.
