After nearly two years of research and surveys, this decision to move our show to September 9, 10 & 11 2014 has been supported by everyone - our members, our exhibitors, our attendees and our media and analysts communities. This move, along with our phenomenal mix of partners, means a truly global mobile wireless event.
This time period makes sense for a number of reasons:
- Perfect time for the holiday buying season
- Same time as IFA, the world’s largest consumer electronics and appliance show, which takes place in Berlin. This provides one platform for truly global announcements.
- Great partners, including the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), CCA, 4G World, M2M and Parks and Associates.
Here’s a five slide presentation that highlights our partners, their focuses and a map of the 2014 show floor. Stay tuned because we have more in the works…

Today, Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) introduced the Mobile Device Theft Deterrence Act. Following introduction of the legislation, I said:
“CTIA welcomes Senator Schumer’s introduction of the Mobile Device Theft Deterrence Act. Stemming the problem of device theft requires a multi-faceted effort and this bill is a key part of what is necessary. Together with the industry’s stolen phone databases, which help to prevent reactivation of devices that have been reported stolen, increased consumer awareness and vigilance and measures that impose tough penalties on those who steal devices or modify them illegally help dry up the market for those who traffic in stolen devices. CTIA urges the Senate to act soon to approve Senator Schumer’s bill.”
