It was a day of mobile marketing and networking as industry experts from different parts of Asia convened to talk about the future of mobile marketing in the recently held CMO Mobile Summit.

I trooped all the way from north of Metro Manila in Quezon City down to the south in Taguig where the 1st Philippine CMO Mobile Summit was held. I made sure I’m not letting this opportunity to hear the insights shared by key leaders in the mobile marketing sector pass. Over 300 CMOs, Directors, Group Heads, Product Heads, and Digital Champions of top multinationals and local companies in the country packed the Blue Leaf in McKineley Hill, Taguig City.
