GadgetTrak recognized at International CTIA WIRELESS 2011 Emerging Tech Awards

While it’s always great to recognize what startups are doing in Portland, it’s much nicer when those local startups are recognized by people outside the area. And there’s no better place than major tradeshows. Like the CTIA show, for example.

Local startup ActiveTrak walked away from the show with a CTIA WIRELESS 2011 Emerging Tech Award for GadgetTrak, placing third in the “Productivity, Utility and Public Safety” category. A notable achievement indeed, especially considering the world stage.

How big is the CTIA? Pretty big.

CTIA–The Wireless Association® is an international organization representing the wireless communications industry. Membership in the association includes wireless carriers and their suppliers, as well as providers and manufacturers of wireless data services and products. CTIA advocates on behalf of its members at all levels of government. The association also coordinates the industry’s voluntary best practices and initiatives, and produces the industry’s leading tradeshows. CTIA was founded in 1984 and is based in Washington, D.C.

“CTIA congratulates this year’s E-Tech Awards winners,” said Robert Mesirow, CTIA vice president and show director. “The mobile industry is undergoing rapid innovation and the E-Tech Awards honor the latest products and services for a truly mobile life.”

The award comes on the heels of GadgetTrak being named a finalist for the SXSW 2011 Microsoft Bizspark Accelerator and winning the Best Security App Award in the 2010 Mobile Star Awards.

Also notable, local tech company Digimarc placed third in the “Social Networking/Content/Entertainment” category for their Digimarc Discover product.
