CTIA Wireless 2013May 21-23Las Vegas, USA

CTIA expects to welcome more than 1,000 exhibitors and more than 40,000 spectators in its new home in Las Vegas in 2013. While the show covers wireless and converged communications, wireless broadband, mobile web computing and data industries, the Wireless Health Pavilion will present the latest offerings from companies providing health products, applications, and managing networks for both professionals and consumer. 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, and Cloud Computing.http://www.ctiawireless.comYoga Conference GermanyMay 30 - June 2Cologne, GermanyWhile the US boasts some of the biggest yoga conferences, Cologne's Yoga Conference Germany is one of the leading events in Europe, drawing in star teachers and musicians for four days of yoga and meditation. http://www.yogaconference.de7th Evolution Asia Yoga ConferenceJune 6-9Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong
