NATPE Hooks Up With Achilles for Mobile++: The nonprofit TV industry organization and convention organizer National Association of Television Program Executives is partnering with event planner Achilles Media to organize and produce its third annual NATPE Mobile++ event, which covers programming via mobile distribution such as cellphones.

The 2007 Mobile ++ conference, presented by InfoSpace, kicks off NATPE’s annual conference and exhibition being held Jan. 15-18, 2007, at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.

NATPE Mobile++ focuses on strategies for creating, licensing and monetizing television and original content for mobile distribution, including games, graphics, multimedia, marketing and promotions, video and messaging.

Achilles Media Ltd. is the management organization for the Banff World Television Festival, among other events.

Attendance at Mobile++ has doubled each year, with more than 700 participants taking part in 2006. More than half of Mobile++ attendees also register for NATPE.
