Technology is a rapidly expanding science. An exploding science. And, for good reason, there are numerous expos and conferences dedicated specifically to the electronics and technology world. Each brings their own unique perspective and niche market.
While there are dozens of fantastic shows available, we compiled a top list of our favorites. These are the ones you definitely won’t want to miss to stay abreast of tech trends.
CES: The Consumer Electronics Show is held in Las Vegas and is both one of the largest and most important tech expos on this planet. This is where one will find the biggest leaders and most advanced debuts in the tech industry. This year’s show, (which runs in January ever year), saw the debut of Google Glass, along with the new trend of “wearable tech.”
CeBIT: If the CES isn’t the world’s most important technology event, CeBIT definitely is. Where CES’s focus is on consumer gadgets, CeBIT’s concentration is more in the business and enterprise realm. However, if you plan to visit CeBIT, you’ll need a passport: the name CeBIT is a German acronym and it’s held in Hanover, Germany, every March.
MWC: Mobile World Congress is the largest wireless and cellular expo of its kind, although CTIA, our honorable mention, is closing the gap fast. Located in Barcelona, this event happens every year in February.
Cloud Expo: This conference is the convergence of the Big Data Expo and the Cloud Expo, held June 10th-12th in New York City. As the name suggests, is concerned with Cloud and Big Data solutions. At these have had a profound, revolutionary effect on the way business operate, it certainly seems fitting to be on our list, despite its smaller (but growing) popularity.
There are a number of journals, publications and blogs that cover each of these events in great detail, but there is no substitute for attending one. In addition to these top 4, there are dozens more that you should consider attending, if nothing else simply to network and make connections.
