October 7-8, 2015 Half Moon Bay, CA #codemobile


Leave your phone in your pocket.

The smartphone is still a big deal, to be sure. But the same technology that powered the smartphone revolution is finding its way into the car and onto devices on our bodies and all around us.

Following the success of the inaugural event last year, Code/Mobile returns to the luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, to examine how an increasingly mobile world is changing the landscape of business, and to showcase companies that are leading that revolution. Join us to meet executives whose companies are driving this change, as well as leaders from the industries being transformed.

Produced by senior editor Ina Fried, this year’s conference will explore the automotive and payment arenas, all evolving along with mobile technology. The wearable market is also heating up and pushing those powerful phones deeper into our pockets.

Code/Mobile will also highlight cutting-edge products poised to further shake things up, and we’ll shine our spotlight on some startups with big ideas.

Media, Recording & Photography Policy

The Code/Mobile stage is on the record for journalistic and editorial purposes. Journalists may quote anything the speakers and Executive Producers say onstage in stories or blog posts. Interviews that occur offstage in the hallways or at social gatherings are subject to whatever ground rules are agreed upon between parties at the time of the interview.

Still photos, taken from your seats, are OK. We ask that you do not use flash so as not to distract or annoy the speakers or others in attendance. Do not stand or crouch in the aisles or near the stage, as this interferes with our official show photographer, whose photos will be posted online for use by members of the media.

Finally, video and audio recordings are strictly prohibited, as we consider the audio and video content of our stage to be copyrighted. Similarly, while we respect fair-use reprinting of short text quotes, we do consider full transcripts of the conference to be our intellectual property.
