Harvey Nash is proud to be a Strategic Sponsor of ARA Seattle: Conversations with Women in the Mobile Movement.

Hosted in collaboration with Best Buy, this event will offer a lively and informative panel discussion, with plenty of time for Q+A. We’ll take a deep dive into creating success in the mobile industry, foster new conversations and offer fresh viewpoints into what’s on the mobile horizon.
