President, MSUA

Mobility News -- moving out!  Several MSUA members requested to have their channel partners, customers and other industry groups added to the Mobility News distribution list. They said they want to make sure others are equally "in the know" about mobility innovations and other market developments.  Sadly, MSUA can't lawfully register recipients without their permission, but you that is!  Just forward this copy of Mobility News to your list of contacts and let them know all they need for a trial subscription is to register here.  

What are you doing Thursday, October 13? MSUA will be hosting a mobility innovation seminar at Oilcomm geared towards end users operating in the up and mid-stream segments of the energy market. MSUA members interested in collaborating on this event, email MSUA goes to Oilcomm!      

What are you doing, Thursday, November 10? MSUA has been asked to host a debate on the importance of content versus connectivity in the aeronautical market at this year's NAB Show / New York.  MSUA members interested in collaborating on this event, email MSUA goes to NAB Show / New York!
