KIRKLAND, Wash. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) released the agenda for Bluetooth World 2014 today, taking place in San Jose, California on April 8 and 9. Building upon the success of Bluetooth Smart technology, with more than 500 million devices in the market at the end of 2013 and a projected 3 billion products to be shipped by 2018, the second year of this premiere wireless event will feature the incredible expansion of Bluetooth technology, hands-on technical trainings and can’t miss conversations on the trends, challenges and opportunities impacting the industry.

“If you’re even thinking about wireless technology for your idea or product, Bluetooth World is the one-stop shop for everything you need.

Bluetooth World is the place where the brightest minds — industry experts, wireless innovators, developers and OEMs, media and analysts, and current and prospective Bluetooth SIG members – will come together to exchange powerful visions and gather new knowledge.
