In 2017 and beyond, CTIA Super Mobility Week will become GSMA Mobile World Congress Americas, in partnership with CTIA. MWC Americas will debut September 12-14, 2017 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center and will be the premier mobile industry event for the Americas, with representation from North, Central and South America. MWC Americas will showcase how mobile is creating the connected life, transforming how individuals, businesses and entire industries communicate, interact and innovate. It will highlight core mobile technologies, consumer and industrial applications in the Internet of Things, the intersection of mobile with entertainment, content and media, and the leading role of the Americas region in driving global innovation.
At 75%, North America represents the highest smartphone adoption of any region and is driving innovation across the mobile ecosystem. At the same time, Central and South America represent one of the fastest growing regions in the world and is on track to add more than 100 million unique subscribers by 2020. (GSMA Intelligence) These data points illustrate the importance of the Americas market to the continued growth and development of the mobile industry. MWC Americas will be the must-attend event for anyone in the mobile industry focused on the Americas.
This exciting new event will bring together everything you have come to expect from a GSMA event; an award-winning conference program, a world-class exhibition, outstanding networking opportunities, partner programs, topical summits and more.
