Record Number of Global Tech Leaders set for Innovation Scouting Among Canadian SMEs at Wavefront Summits 2014 in Vancouver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- The B2B Meetings taking place at the 2014 Wavefront Wireless Summits February 4-6, 2014, are proving a major attraction for a milestone number of entrepreneurs and global business heads. Over 100 Canadian entrepreneurs and small businesses have already applied to participate in the B2B Meetings, where they will be granted the opportunity to meet and pitch decision makers from 20 international global brands including, Ericsson, Oracle, Deutsche Telecom, Telefonica, Cisco, HP, Sierra Wireless and Rogers among many others. Since 2012, Wavefront has facilitated over 100 meetings with 50 multi-national global leaders through the Summits, which have resulted in partnerships and signed business.

"The time and resources that it would require for most entrepreneurs to get in front of key decision makers at just one of these large multi-national companies, never mind multiple, is typically out of reach," explains James Maynard, President and CEO of Wavefront. "For us to be able to offer this opportunity, on top of an agenda of great content and discussion among global experts is something that we know will make an impact for wireless businesses."

The B2B Meetings offer unprecedented access to tangible business potential for growing Canadian wireless and mobility companies. Major global organizations view them as an ideal platform to connect with increasingly renowned Canadian technology innovation. Participating entrepreneurs and corporate representatives are carefully matched based on strategy and goals. During 45-minute private meetings with industry leaders, entrepreneurs have the opportunity to:

--  Pitch their company in a one-on-one setting
--  Lay foundations for future relationships and collaboration
--  Explore new business direction and possibilities
--  Gain entry into new markets
--  Access international suppliers

In addition to the B2B Meetings, the 2014 Wavefront Wireless Summits features an impressive line up of speakers and thought leaders set to discuss and share insight into driving business transformation through wireless technology.

The wireless industry contributes more than $41 billion to Canada's economy and it is forecasted that by 2020, there will be more than 50 billion connected devices globally. Wavefront is helping companies build a stronger wireless sector in Canada, which is contributing to a stronger Canadian economy. A recent assessment of Wavefront's economic impact reveals the creation of nearly 575 jobs across Canada, accelerated time to market by four to six months for wireless companies, and $37 million generated in GDP between 2009-2012.
