WASHINGTON, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Everyone across the wireless ecosystem will have an opportunity to experience the latest news and developments in the wireless industry from two distinct perspectives when CTIA-The Wireless Association® and the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) run their shows in Las Vegas during the same week in September 2014. The CCA 2014 Annual Convention will take place September 8-10 at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. CTIA 2014™ Super Mobility Show debuts September 9, 10 & 11 at the Las Vegas Sands Expo and Convention Center.
The CTIA show and the CCA Annual Convention bring together the top executives from wireless companies of all sizes with the most innovative vendors in mobile for five days of intensive networking, sharing of best practices and business development. This ground-breaking cooperative effort between CCA and CTIA will bring together the two shows and provide attendees with distinct experiences to illustrate the breadth and diversity of the rapidly-growing mobile marketplace.
To facilitate the learning and networking opportunities of both shows, CTIA and CCA will offer:
- Dual-access passes for attendees to attend both CCA and CTIA show floors and keynote sessions;
- Credentialed journalists may attend both CCA and CTIA shows and have access to the press room, exhibit floor, keynote sessions, educational sessions, etc.;
- Complimentary shuttle service on September 8 and September 9 between the Cosmopolitan and Sands Expo.
"We created Super Mobility Week so that companies of all sizes in the wireless ecosystem may network and conduct business with the right people under one roof. Today's announcement with CCA is yet another proof point for why anyone who is in the wireless industry must attend Super Mobility Week, forming a weeklong schedule of business and professional development opportunities," said Steve Largent, president and CEO, CTIA.
"CCA events are known as the place 'where the carriers are' so we're pleased to offer attendees of both shows the opportunity to reach the right audiences for networking and business development," said Steven K. Berry, president and CEO, CCA. "As we've extended the reach and influence of CCA's events over the past few years, we've attracted top-level thought-leaders from the carrier, technology, policy and media and analyst communities who have a vested interest in the success of the more than 100 competitive wireless carriers in North America. Together with CTIA's event, we're helping to cover the topics of interest to all of the carriers and the companies with whom they do business. This broader perspective is a win for everyone."
