You stay classy, Las Vegas! Attendees of this year's CTIA Wireless can now practice and act out their own version of a stormtracker as Vantrix and The Weather Channel Interactive are teaming up to host a green wall set at the Vantrix booth (#6935), where show attendees will be able to get in front of the camera, dictate the day's weather alongside Jim Cantore and receive their broadcast debut on their mobile phone within minutes. Vantrix and The Weather Channel's fun foray into weather news star-making comes hot on the heels of the successful mobile video Web site from The Weather Channel that was recently unveiled.

Our mobile video show highlights and weather forecasts were a huge success at CTIA last October

    Vantrix is a driving force behind this year's CTIA Wireless conference in Las Vegas, also sponsoring Billboard's Mobile Entertainment Live! today and powering CTIA's mobile video Internet site. This site will feature daily video highlights of the show, video weather forecasts for Las Vegas updated every 30 minutes, courtesy of The Weather Channel Interactive, and a live camera feed to give attendees a chance to check out CTIA's technology fashion show, Fashion in Motion.

To access Vantrix's CTIA mobile portal, go to on your phone's browser, or simply text "CTIA" to 23333, and you will receive a message back with a link to the portal.

"Our mobile video show highlights and weather forecasts were a huge success at CTIA last October," said Daniel Torras, VP Marketing & Product Strategy for Vantrix. "CTIA is an extremely important event in the wireless community and we are honored to help bring aspects of the show together, most especially by including show attendees as the future weather reporters of America."

As the Presenting Sponsor of Billboard's Mobile Entertainment Live!, Vantrix is also providing attendees with access to the first event of CTIA. Mobile Entertainment Live! will feature celebrity Q&A with rap pioneer Chuck D, the legendary Ray Manzarek of The Doors, entertainment icon Quincy Jones and Matchbox Twenty's Paul Doucette, as well as a state-of-the-industry debate and keynotes from CTIA Wireless, Microsoft, Yahoo! Mobile, Sprint Nextel, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone Group Plc. Additionally, Daniel Torras, VP Marketing & Product Strategy for Vantrix, will be giving the opening remarks for the show for the second time in a row.
