MEIC – AGM and FREE Membership Details!

The Mobile Experience Innovation Centre (MEIC)

Annual General Meeting (AGM), April 5, 2011

Come and join the MEIC during its inaugural AGM. This will be an opportunity to hear from companies the MEIC has worked with over the last year, learn how you can benefit from becoming involved as a member, and meet others working in the mobile industry.

The Mobile Experience Innovation Centre (MEIC) is a recently incorporated not-for-profit association that has grown out of an industry/academia consortium, founded by OCAD University in 2007, to form Canada’s only organization focused on design leadership and experience innovation in the mobile industry to accelerate sector growth in mobile content, services and computing.

MEIC now offers the first mobile-focused design incubator in the Greater Toronto Region operating on OCAD University’s campus at 205 Richmond Street West.

The association offers applied research and commercialization support, advisory services, conferences and workshops, and international outreach.

Since the MEIC is a brand-new association, we are offering attendees a Charter Association Membership.

This is a one-time offer to join for FREE, so please be sure to save the date!

This classification of membership will provide you with voting privileges at the AGM as well as discounts to workshops and partner events.
