As part of Super Mobility Week, attendees may participate in several other events while at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas. Perhaps the biggest travel savings is the co-location with IFA, the world's largest trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances. As a part of the world's first borderless trade show, companies can simultaneously announce their new products and services in Berlin and Las Vegas to maximize attention in advance of the holiday buying season. The 22+ signature partner events at Super Mobility Week include 4G World, LA Auto Show, The Money Event and Tower & Small Cell Summit.
"Super Mobility Week offers speakers, exhibitors and attendees an unprecedented opportunity to network and engage with people in other industries focused on mobile. With more than 1,100 exhibitors, tens of thousands attendees and 1,000 media expected, Super Mobility Week is the only trade show to attend for those who need to know all things mobile," said Robert Mesirow, CTIA Vice President and Show Director.
Additional features that attendees will enjoy include Thomas Dolby + ETHEL String Quartet as the Super Mobility Week house band. Considered a mad scientist of synth pop and perhaps best known for "blinding us with science," he was an early star on MTV before moving to Silicon Valley.
To celebrate CTIA's partnership with IFA, we'll host daily Oktoberfest networking times with authentic German beer, pretzels, sausage and cheese. MobileCON attendees also have special reception events with cocktails and snacks.
