A Better Expo Awaits

Robin Tobias

With 2021 in our rear view mirrors, and AWPE 2021 deals still going strong, it’s hard to believe it’s time to plan for 2022.  If All Wireless & Prepaid Expo 2022 hasn’t yet made it into your plan, now is the time!

With over 3,200 registered attendees, AWPE 2021 boasted its largest attendance to date; 80+ exhibitors; and a 20% overall increase in both attendance and exhibitors.  And these attendees came to buy.  With the busiest sales floor in our 15-year history, over 90% of attendees came with the intention of finding new vendors and opportunities, and 75% of those attendees had the authority to source and approve once there.

The market is likely to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% through 2031, reaching US $166 Billion. The US continues to hold 78% of total sales in North America.

As a wireless provider, it is vital for you to offer the newest, trendiest and most desired accessories the industry has to offer. The Wireless Accessories Expo, located on the floor of All Wireless & Prepaid Expo, brings these innovations to you - one room, hundreds of revenue-generating opportunities.
