In the last 5 years, the balance of the tech marketing world has gradually moved to a balanced spread of Social Media activity (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter etc), Mobile presence (Apple apps, Android apps, Mobile websites etc), Search marketing (AdWords, AdCenter, Display Network, SEO etc) and Traditional Websites (websites, portals, banner advertising, affiliate marketing etc). And one of the keenest movements driving this new shift in balance is the convergence of Social, Location-based and Mobile media (SoLoMo).

Meet Leon C.K. Leong at SoLoMo Thursday on 26th April in Singapore. The Business Relations Director at Techsailor Group will share his first-hand insights on social media.
