"2013 Mobility Awards Banquet"

by J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D. on January 16, 2013


The 2013 Mobility Awards banquet was held at the famous Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas on Wednesday evening, January 9th, as part of International CES®. Approximately 90 attended the gala including many members of the press.

Each year, we define the major categories and sub-categories that best represent the current status of the mobile and wireless industry. We then let vendors and their PR representatives nominate their products or services in up to two different sub-categories. We had over 600 nominations in 16 major categories and 70 sub-categories. We turned off the nomination process the first week in December.

During the fall, we recruited 61 members of the press and analysts to vote on the products and services they felt were the best in each sub-category. The voting started just before Christmas and was completed just after the New Year. We compiled the winners and announced them at the banquet on January 9th.

A number of the winning companies sent representatives to the 2013 Mobility Awards banquet which was held at the Bellagio. Las Vegas is a big place with each hotel having a major conference center – all in addition to the Las Vegas Convention Center where companies had small to gigantic booths. I’ll report next week on some interesting things I saw during the show.
