iCampusTimes CEO to Speak at Southern California Venture Network Mobile Applications Market Update

Invitation-Only SCVN Event to Feature iCampusTimes' Mobile Advertising Model, Which Gives College Publications a Contemporary Revenue Source and College Communities Access to Daily Deals

TEMECULA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2011) - iCampusTimes, a location-based mobile app platform for campus publications, has been invited by the Southern California Venture Network (SCVN) to speak at its invitation-only conference on the mobile application market. iCampusTimes Chief Executive Officer Tim Roberts will join Brett Potts, chief financial officer at Titansan Engineering, and John VanZandt, president of CEO SoftCenters to present the market update on Sept. 13.

"We're thrilled to be asked to present our platform to the SCVN audience. Using GPS technology, iCampusTimes provides students with a free app for discovering short-term, spontaneous deals in and around their college campus communities," Roberts said. "By working with us, college publications get to offer mobile advertising to local merchants, which they typically couldn't develop alone, while generating additional advertising revenue for their journalism and media programs."

Launched this year, iCampusTimes is unlike daily deal sites. Its immediate deals are unique to campus communities, do not require advance purchase, and can be short term and spontaneous.

"These speakers will provide a mobile apps market update and cover various related topics including mobile advertising, technology, platform updates, location-based services and business models," said Bruce Wilson, SCVN director. "We selected them to speak because of their market foresight and technology innovation."
