The fourth edition of the M-Enabling Summit will held in June 2015 at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, DC.

The Summit is the only gathering of U.S. and international leaders of the global ecosystem supporting accessible and assistive mobile solutions. At the Summit they share experiences on how to best leverage the latest mobile operating systems, handset and tablet technologies, creating life changing applications and services for seniors and users of all abilities. 

M-Enabling Summit ‘s global visitors program is developed in cooperation with the Federal Communications Commission, international organizations, mobile service providers, industry, apps developers, rehabilitation professionals, special educators and organizations of seniors and persons with disabilities.   The conference and showcase attracts key decision makers participating in the mobile industry and expert users and professionals from around the world.

“With the increased processing power of mobile devices and expanded network bandwidth many more innovative solutions are now possible. The versatility of handsets, tablets and operating systems, cloud-based applications and global economies of scale of the mobile industry all point towards a growing opportunity for developers to bring life-enhancing solutions for hundreds of millions of seniors and persons with disabilities around the world,” said Axel Leblois, Executive Director of G3ict.

Major mobile service providers and their distributors are active participants in the Summit and are essential intermediaries in promoting and making those applications and services available to those who need them.
