Over the coming week some of the latest interior design products and trends will be showcased at consumer trade show Grand Designs Live in London which is based on the popular UK TV series of the same name. This year, for the second year in a row, the show will honor the top products on display with a Grand Designs Magazine Loves award. CTIA Wireless, now in its 27th year, spans wireless and converged communications, wireless broadband, mobile web computing and data industries - the theme of this year's show is "All things mobile."
Grand Designs Live - London
Excel Exhibition Center London
United Kingdom, London
This UK-based home design exhibition combines practical with more cutting-edge design. The products on display here are more applicable to the mass market than the edgy designs at France's Maison & Objet for example. The event is smaller than Ambiente, attracting around 50,000 visitors each year.
27th CTIA Wireless
Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
CTIA will host more than 1,000 exhibitors and over 40,000 spectators in 2012. The show covers wireless and converged communications, wireless broadband, mobile web computing and data industries, and in 2012 the focus is on "All things mobile." Companies will demo the latest in enterprise solutions, energy-saving products, and emerging mobile entertainment technology. While Mobile World Congress puts the emphasis on consumer devices, CTIA is all about the technologies that power them, including Location Based Services (LBS), Smart Energy, Wireless Health, Intelligent Transportation, Cloud Computing and Mobile Money.
24th International Contemporary Furniture Fair
Jacob K. Javits Convention Center
United States, New York
The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) showcases the latest in cutting edge design from around the world. Over 500 exhibitors from 30 countries across 10 categories are expected to attend this year's event.
11th CeBIT Australia
Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour
The Australian edition of the world's largest digital IT and telecommunications event, CeBIT takes place annually in Sydney, Australia. CeBIT Australia is hailed as the country's largest ICT exhibition (but is only around a tenth of the size of its parent event, CeBIT in Hannover). CeBIT Australia is a focal point of an additional series of events (including Cloud, AusInnovate, eHealth, eGovernment, Mobile, Online Retail and Digital Workshops) that will run concurrently to the exhibition. More than 600 exhibitors and 30,000 delegates are expected to attend CeBIT Australia in 2012.
