WASHINGTON, D.C., July 26, 2012 – International CTIA WIRELESS® is proud to announce that it has been named one of the Top 25 Tradeshows by Net Square Footage in the U.S., according to the Trade Show News Network (TSNN).
"During some tough years for the trade show industry when a lot of show floors were being downsized, it is a true feat by the team at International CTIA WIRELESS to not only grow the size of their show, but also at a fast growing rate," said TSNN President and Editor-in-Chief Rachel Wimberly.
The winners in overall net square growth from 2009 to 2011 cover a wide range of industries such as technology, trucking, fashion and packaging. CTIA will be honored at the 3rd Annual TSNN Awards: Celebrating Trade Show Excellence, taking place November 2-4, in Louisville, Ky.
