SMS for Development: a Hands-on DC Salon

Text messaging is a quick and targeted way to reach beneficiaries in the developing world. But you already know that. Yet have you seen an SMS router close-up? Experimented with proven solutions that you can use in your existing programs? Or brainstormed on how SMS could add sizzle to your next proposal?

In the May DC Technology Salon we will have live demonstrations of several real, deployable SMS solutions that are being developed by local experts right here in DC for use around the world focusing on:

This Salon is now closed to new RSVP’s – we had 50 requests for 15 slots in the first few hours and the waitlist is already too long to add anyone else.

    With 60 requests for 15 slots, this Salon was way overbooked. We’ll have an SMS4D-2 next month for those that couldn’t make this event.
