The event brought together some of the best and brightest minds in mobile marketing to help marketers tackle the challenges and opportunities GDPR and other current mobile marketing topics present to them and their respective businesses.
At the time of this announcement, Samir Addamine, founder of FollowAnalytics, said, “With GDPR, companies are challenged to put systems and processes in place to comply with GDPR in a fairly short timeline.
