“We accomplish more in three hours at ShowStoppers Mobile World Congress than we can in a month of PR effort. The international coverage at this event gets the Speedify application included in the most well-read stories coming out of MWC. It is invaluable to be face-to-face with the media that can move our business ahead,” said Alex Gizis, chief executive officer and co-founder, Connectify, the maker of Speedify.
“ShowStoppers was a great event for us to showcase our portable fuel cell charger, JAQ, to journalists from all over the world. JAQ is a brand new way of charging – completely independent from wall jacks & no last-minute stress because of low battery level – just insert a card, filled with water and salt, & your phone/tablet is set to go,” said My Ernevi, Marketing Manager, myFC.
