Around here, we’re prepping presentations, briefing speakers and packing boxes. Tuesday begins DMS 2011, and it’s looking good.

We’re not doing a mobile SuperForum, as we usually do at our big shows — that format will be reserved for great sessions on performance media and social media.

But there will be plenty of mobile action. Below are the sessions scattered throughout Day 2 (Wednesday) of the show. I’m especially looking forward to the iPad demos.

The rest of the agenda is here. Hope to see you there.

9:30 am – 10:00 am

With the relentless penetration of smartphones and tablet devices well under way, mobile device use is quickly transforming the role and power of users, advertisers and publishers. But real adoption and execution are a different story. What are the tools being offered to SMBs to establish a mobile presence? What do these products look like and, more important, how are they selling? From self-serve Foursquare “specials” to Yellow Pages-delivered mobile landing pages, what’s working best for SMBs to get up and running?
