OMTP, the industry forum for simplifying the customer experience of mobile data services, has signed an agreement to work in close partnership with PMN to endorse the MEX conference on 2nd – 3rd May 2007.
Backed by many of the largest mobile carriers, including Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange, Telefonica and Cingular, OMTP defines requirements for standardised application interfaces and consistent user experience across multiple devices.

PMN has challenged 10 of the most creative speakers in the industry to respond directly to the 10 points of the MEX manifesto; they will deliver 10 presentations exploring all aspects of the mobile user experience and inspire a series of breakout groups and panels where executives from across the value chain work together to define a response to the manifesto.
The agreement covers a wide range of joint marketing activities to promote the conference and the OMTP’s role at the event.
