The People’s Choice Awards — selected by the audience after the finalists do five-minute "Fast-Pitch" presentations — are a high point of this one-day annual event.

The awards recognizes innovative connected-location products, services, applications or technologies in beta or available on the market today. Finalists are selected in three categories: Connected Location Device, Location Application, and Location Everywhere Solution.

Fast-Pitch submissions are being accepted until September 6, 2010 online. There is no fee to enter.

Everyone is invited to submit ideas for the Fast-Pitch presentations and People’s Choice awards. However, attendance at summit events is by invitation only in order to encourage dialogue among all participants in an intimate setting. You may request an invitation at the website below.

SIRF Technologies started the summit, then called Location 2.0, in 2007. SIRF merged with CSR plc (Cambridge Silicon Radio), a UK-based company, in 2009. CSR develops multifunction location and connectivity products, including the SIRFstar GNSS line for location-enabled mobile devices.
