One of the many agendas will address the future relationship between IoT, VR, and 5G connectivity.

Developers and tech enthusiasts were heartbroken when Intel abruptly ended the annual Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco earlier this year with no proper replacement or consolation. Fortunately, MWC Americas should fill in the void and hopefully showcase new wireless technologies and products catered to North American audiences in the same vein as MWC Barcelona.

While details have been low ever since the official announcement back in February, GSMA has now announced the first keynote speakers for MWC Americas including PayPal CEO Dan Schulman, Verizon Executive VP Ronan Dunne, Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri, and many more as detailed in the press release below. The full exhibitor list is also now available and includes major recognizable brands such as AT&T, Qualcomm, Huawei, Sprint, Samsung, Verizon, T-Mobile, and ZTE with over 1000 others.

MWC Americas will be hosted from September 12th to the 14th in the same downtown venue as where IDF 2017 would have taken place. The event is expected to draw over 30,000 attendees and give North American audiences a chance to preview the latest wireless technologies that have traditionally appeared in MWC every year at Barcelona. New Chinese smartphones designed specifically for North American users should prove to be interesting as most existing smartphones lack the radios necessary for 4G reception in the United States. Notebookcheck will be live at the event to cover any new consumer smartphones or concepts on the show floor.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
