SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN -- (Marketwire) -- 06/12/12 -- June 14-15, 2012, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, will host a two-day conference of engaging presentations from the world's most prolific social media and mobile companies including FreshBooks, Clarity.fm, Deloitte, BlueFuego, WestJet, WeSprout, Lovesocial, Vanilla Forums, Localmind and CBC.
Keynote speakers include best-selling author Julien Smith; technology pundit Duncan Stewart; higher education marketer Brad Ward; United Breaks Guitars' Dave Carroll; serial entrepreneur Dan Martell and word-of-mouth marketing genius Saul Colt.
MoSo, presented by SaskTel, brings together over three hundred of Western Canada's brightest creative minds to imagine the future of technology and marketing. The mobile and social media conference is being hosted at the University of Saskatchewan campus.
New this year is an expanded indie music festival - MoSoFest - which will bring more than 50 national, international and local artists to stages across the city. Artists include Busdriver, Ian Blurton, Bonjay, Moka Only, Bry Webb (ex-Constantines), Damien Jurado and the Dudes among others.
"After the overwhelming success of the first MoSo conference, we are very excited to once again be the title sponsor for the second annual mobile and social media conference," said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. "The integration of mobile and social media into SaskTel's business and into the lives and businesses of our customers has been evolving at the speed of light and this conference allows the creative minds that drive that integration to further develop their strategies to maximize its potential."
Aimed at developers and business audiences alike, the sold out conference includes presentations by more than 30 speakers with expertise ranging from mobile applications, technology trends, entrepreneurship, social media marketing, and user experience.
"I am really looking forward to going to Saskatoon again for MoSo Conference," said Saul Colt, one of the Keynote speakers. "The conference is growing every year and it looks to have an amazing speaker line-up in 2012. The people in Saskatoon put on one of the best mobile and social media conferences I have been to, and this one will be a lot of fun."
In its second year, Canada's mobile and social media conference has sold out again, but there are plans to continue it as an annual event. For those that can't make it this year the MoSo website and various social media spaces will be updated frequently throughout the course of the conference with blogs, pictures, insights, and video.

"We have almost 400 people from around Canada and North America who will attend and have an opportunity to hear from an amazing speaker line-up. With over 30 speakers at the conference and over 50 bands at expanded MoSoFest, we are looking forward to a great time next week."
