Today, our colleagues from MobileWeb organised their Web Goes Mobile seminar for the third time. Lot’s of IT, media and communications people learned how they should handle the mobile web in their business.


At this kind of seminar the word used to be “going to”. The mobile web is going to change your business, yes, sometimes in the future, it will. Not for this edtion. Both speakers and audience where discussing real business, real projects and measurable results.

The speakers where top notch, the discussions where interesting and the host and sponsors provided everyone with a warm welcome. Most importantly, this event convinced me that the feeling I’m having since a few months is reality: The mobile web market in Belgium is now really taking off.

The article discusses how local merchants can use mobile marketing to their benefit. Our colleagues from Mobileweb are cited for their market lead in SMS solutions. The article also explains that you can go further than SMS and opt for an MMS or mobile internet solution. Unizo did their homework well. They even analysed the Belgian situation and concluded that due to the lack of subsidized handsets there is still less mobile internet penetration than in our neighbouring countries.

A nice view on technology from an organisation whose main goal is to represent plumbers, butchers and shopkeepers!
