The BIG Idea Contest was created as a platform to present ideas, visions and concepts that embody the transformative power and life-changing potential of wireless.
Online votes will determine the five deserving finalists who will put their ideas to the ultimate test—presenting to a live voting audience from the Exhibit Innovations Stage, which will be in the Emerging Technology Zone on the exhibit floor.
