CTIA Wireless 2007, billed as the world's largest event for the wireless industry, takes place Mar. 27-29 in Orlando, Fla. This year's event will highlight a “seismic shift” currently underway in business productivity, fueled by wireless adoption, according to conference organizers.

CTIA says its educational program and co-located partner conferences will “engage industry stalwarts and upstarts alike,” making for a lively exchange of ideas and points of view. Participants are said to include policy makers, wireless carriers, and corporate representatives who will “expose the promise, and potential pitfalls” awaiting the wireless enterprise.

On Mar. 26, CTIA Wireless will host a series of day-long pre-conference events focused on the mobile enterprise, described by conference organizers as:

  • VoIP Mobility — addressing issues and opportunities facing mobile VoIP, including system and consumer requirements
  • Smartphone Summit — showcasing the latest smartphones, hardware, and accessories, with representation from all smartphone OS platforms including Linux, Microsoft, RIM, and Symbian
  • Wireless Data University — led by Andrew Seybold, this has been the industry's preeminent in-depth wireless data education session, for neophytes and experts alike
  • Mobile Payments World — bringing together banks, financial services, and mobile communications

A spectrum of registration packages is offered, with “early-bird” pricing available until Feb. 12. Non-member prices range from $135 for an early-bird exhibits-only pass, to $1130 for a top-of-the-line early-bird Smart Pass, with higher pricing for on-site registrants, and lower pricing for CTIA members.
