Washington, D.C., March 2, 2016 – Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) heads to Nashville this spring with the inaugural edition of the Mobile Carriers Show (MCS), an evolution of CCA’s Global Expo. The event takes place April 13-15 at Music City Center. With an expanded agenda and exhibit floor, MCS will provide a venue for technology vendors, infrastructure and backhaul providers, handset, device and app developers and other industries focused on mobility to reach the dynamic market of North American competitive carriers who spend over $15 billion annually on products and services related to the wireless industry.
On Wednesday, April 13 a Keynote CTO Roundtable will examine how networks will connect in the 4G and 5G world. And on Thursday, Steven K. Berry, president and CEO of CCA, will address attendees followed by TJ Kennedy, president of FirstNet, who will provide an update on the progress of FirstNet including state consultations and the vision of the request for proposal. A keynote panel, The State of the Industry through the Eyes of Leading Innovators, will address how carriers can meet video, IoT and consumer demand and what to expect after the incentive auction.
An expanded exhibit floor will feature specialized topic areas, including an IoT Connection Zone produced by 151 Advisors with companies presenting case studies focused on agriculture, fitness, health, connected home, and fleet and asset tracking. Throughout the exhibit hall, attendees will see the latest offerings from software companies, infrastructure providers and developers who want to sell to the largest group of carriers in North America.
MCS has expanded its conference program to include an IoT track that will explore revenue opportunities and network support for the proliferation of devices and increased traffic levels. Additional tracks include sessions focused on Business Development, Marketing/Customer Service, Policy and Technical. MCS also will feature partner seminars focused on MVNO opportunities and customer experience management, among others.

We have evolved the show to facilitate connecting key decision makers from the carrier market with the technology and business innovators who collaborate to help move the mobile industry forward. We’ve developed a comprehensive educational program to address all aspects of the competitive mobile industry, and have designed this dynamic program around a friendly and effective networking environment for everyone, beginning with a launch party at the new George Jones Museum on Tuesday, April 12,” said Steven K. Berry, president and CEO of CCA.
