Mobile Intelligence and Networking: Mobikyo at Wireless Japan 2007

Tokyo, Japan, June 5, 2007 -- Mobikyo KK, Japan's leading source for mobile industry information, today announced a stellar line-up of people-focussed events aiming to connect mobile industry insiders at Expo Comm Wireless Japan 2007, Japan's hottest and liveliest mobile and wireless industry showcase. Three days of intensive mobile market intelligence and in-depth understanding. Mobikyo will co-host three popular events in co-operation with Expo Comm Wireless Japan 2007, Tokyo Big Sight, 18-20 July, the largest specialized trade show in Japan dedicated to wireless and mobile network technologies. With over 34,000 industry professionals and 180 exhibitors attending, Wireless Japan is the central meeting point for Asia's wireless industry. As 3G adoption exceeds 70 percent saturation in Japan, mobile ecosystem players are increasingly aiming to establish partnerships, tie-ups and business deals to deliver their products and services - as well as lessons learned - into emerging markets elsewhere. There has never been a better time for overseas companies to make valuable connections into Japan's wireless industry and there has never been a better venue than Mobikyo KK's stellar event line-up at Expo Comm Wireless Japan.

18-20 July, Mobile Intelligence Japan Mission to Tokyo
Since 2003, MIJ has operated professionally guided missions into the heart of Japan's wireless revolution, providing market introductions, personal connections and actionable lessons for industry execs worldwide. Japan hosts the world's most advanced mobile market and MIJ participants will connect with the companies, talk to the experts and observe the technologies and services making 3G happen. MIJ's 3-day programme of intensive seminars, technology demonstrations and in-person teachings is the best way to understand the mobile Internet ecosystem and extract success factors, actionable lessons and business opportunities applicable to Europe, Asia, the Americas and elsewhere.

The MIJ agenda includes custom company sessions, scheduled vendor exhibit tours with hands-on demonstrations, introductions to key players, access to insider networking events and -- most importantly -- a tour through the fabled streets of Tokyo, where keitai (cell phone) culture and youth synergy are driving mobile innovation.
