CTIA is dead long live Mobilecon
The US is often noted for its exceptions to other countries:
- Formula 1 vs. Indycar
- Soccer vs. American football
- Rugby vs. American football
And trade shows are no exceptiion, CTIA – the American equivalent of the GSMA has an annual show broadly equivalent of Mobile World Congress. This year it has been rebranded to Mobilecon. It will probably bring big news for those PRs who work on mobile enterprise clients, rather than a plethora of new handsets that you can’t get for six months like what usually happens at Mobile World Congress.
UPDATE: Rachelle Lacroix got in touch to tell me that there is still a CTIA show earlier in the year; next due in May 2013, but the autumn show rebranded.
