Post-show wrap: CTIA attendance down 15%

Wireless may be getting a partial pass in the down economy, but the industry’s biggest trade show certainly isn’t. CTIA reported attendance at CTIA Wireless dropped 15% this year, short of the worst case scenario, but definitely an indication that recession isn’t bypassing mobile industry.

Official attendance came in at 34,000, down 6000 from the previous years, and way off of the 45,000 plus CTIA Wireless has enjoyed in years’ previous. CTIA claims that the movers and shakers that actually make the strategic decisions and purchase the goods were in attendance, so while foot traffic may have been down high-level networking and deal-making were still going on behind the scenes.
