GBC Introduces Sessions Geared Towards Both Innovators & Incumbents
For the inaugural year, the Social : Mobile : Payments conference will be focused on two distinct market categories ‘Innovators’ and ‘Incumbents’. These two individual tracks have been defined to help further explore the distinctions between mature companies and innovative groundbreakers. "Gulf Bay Consulting has correctly identified the critical distinction between the two tracks they’ve labeled Innovators and Incumbents" said Analyst and Author David W. Schropfer "This is not meant to separate the two types of companies but rather to allow attendees to experience the distinction between the separate segments” he said.
According to Gulf Bay, delegates may attend either session with the anticipation that the disparity provokes those present to explore the differences as well as their similarities. They’ll learn from each other’s posture, evolution and cultures; this separation will actually benefit the audience and fit well with the markets being discussed at the Social : Mobile : Payments event.
