UBM hangs up on 4G World as market 'evolves'

Global events organiser UBM has cancelled its annual US telecoms and wireless trade show and conference, 4G World, citing “evolving market conditions”. The news comes as the organiser’s London office announced it would cancel its May Design Series, which catered to architecture and design professionals, to focus on niche events. A UBM spokesperson told CN the 2014 edition of 4G World, held in Las Vegas on 9-11 September, was its last as a standalone brand.
