CTIA and MobileCon to Merge in 2014 for a 'Super Mobile Show'
A new year has dawned, which means the slate of conventions, trade shows, and press events are going to be in full swing over the next twelve months. It's the same every year, however, when 2014 rolls around things will look a little different for two mobile shows. Earlier today, the Wireless Association announced CTIA and MobileCon (the enterprise version of CTIA) will be merged in 2014 to create a "super mobile show." Currently, CTIA is held in Las Vegas in the spring (May 21-23 this year) and MobileCon in San Jose in the fall (October 9-11). This upcoming merger of the two gives the consumer and enterprise worlds a better chance to see everything at once and get some excitement back, especially after the fairly quiet 2012 shows. CTIA 2014 is set for September 9-11 in Las Vegas, with the two events this year featuring "super show programs" to welcome the merger.
