We reached our destination

27 April 2011


Prepare for some unexpected news: the next MoMoAms is the last event we will organize in the foreseeable future. Read on to find out why.

When we started in 2007, we were out on a mission. Now, while heading to our four year anniversary, we took time to look in the rear view mirror and realized that we are nearing our destination. At the last event we promised that the next event will be special and we will make sure it is. First, a look back.

Rear view mirror
May 2007: the first MoMoAms event kicked off with over 200 guests. Our goal was to inspire and connect people in a world of unexplored opportunities. The mobile domain evolved rapidly. It was a time that the N95 was the absolute most awesome gadget you could have. Nobody really knew what to expect from mobile, other than that it would be something big. We had a bumpy road ahead and much to discover.

The here and now
Fast forward: four years later MoMoAms has a community of over 4000 Mobilistas, had 144 inspiring speakers on stage and 22 diverse topics on the subject of (mobile) technology and innovation. The event has become notorious for the speed at which the RSVPs tend to run out. Now, mobile is mainstream and you, one of our early adopters, have a better view on the road ahead.

Today, we are proud to see that The Netherlands has a vibrant and healthy mobile community. People know where to find each other and are eager to pioneer new mobile concepts. We realize that we have nearly reached the end of our journey. This is – to be fair – a frightening feeling. There is no other way to find our new destination than to take a break and stop organizing MoMoAms as you have come to know over the past years.

Where to go from here?
With little more than a month to go for our four year anniversary, we are ramping up for our closing accord. Six global thought leaders are already stretching their minds to share their latest insights and ideas and most touching experiences in their talks. We will soon send out more information concerning the line-up and how to attend the event.

The technology evolution will not stop after the upcoming MoMoAms, neither will our thirst for great stories that need to be shared. We are excited to see where the new journey will take us.

Expect an e-mail about our final event soon, so: stay tuned!

    Dear MoMoAms organisers,

    Kill your darlings and create space for new initiatives. MoMOAms really proved a very valuable platform for innovation in the mobile space and beyond. I am proud to be a visitor from the first beginning as well as speaker and want to thank all organisers for all the time and energy put into it. Its not about spreading the mobile word anymore but its about integrating it into vertical businesses so MoMoAms will spread over all businesses new and old.

    Namaste, Ron Verweij

  3. Wicked! Thanks for all your fantastic events guys! Loved it.

  4. Oh.
    That is a shame.

    I wonder if we will be looking back in 20 years time and thinking – “Oh yes, 2011 was when mobile innovation stopped being something we should celebrate in it’s own right.”

    I only discovered you recently, but you will be missed this side of the North Sea.
