“The Open Mobile Summit is the place where, once a year, the leaders of the converging mobile, Internet and media industries gather to explore how we can build and monetize the open mobile Internet.”

This evening, thanks to WOMWorld/Nokia, I’ll (@jaymontano) be travelling down to London for Open Mobile Summit 2010.

Other attendees include Sergejs aka @_Nexus (also of Symbian-Freak, Phonespot and MyNokiaBlog) as well as the crazy talented Iain Wallace aka @the_accidental (also from doitdifferent and Nokia Users). From WOM, we’ll be looked after by an awesome duo of Riccardo Webb and THE Donna Suffling! Also there’ll apparently be some other faces from the WOM team joining in the evening dinner ^_^

As for the event itself, there’s gonna be a lot of important leaders there of mobile, internet and media industries (Nokia, Qualcomm, Acer, Sony, HTC, O2, Vodafone, France Telecom, Deutsche Telecom, Real Networks, Yahoo, Admob, Reuters, ESPN, Sky, Universal Music Group International and MTV.)
