Entries for Best In Mobile Marketing will be judged according to their potential to influence consumer perception and purchasing habits, effective use of the mobile medium, and the extent to which the mobile campaign complements the broader marketing effort.

2011 Mobile Innovation Survey

The Mobile Experience Innovation Centre (MEIC), a trade organization promoting job creation and economic prosperity in Ontario’s mobile media ecosystem, is calling upon content producers and technology companies with mobile offerings to complete the 2011 Mobile Innovation Survey.

It is widely believed that Ontario is a powerhouse for mobile development, but there is little research publically available to support that claim.  MEIC, through the 2011 Mobile Innovation Survey, intends to produce a profile of Ontario’s mobile content, services, and application companies. Your participation in this effort will help quantify Ontario’s mobile media industry.
