Former presidents Bush, Clinton to keynote CTIA show

Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton are scheduled to appear for an hour-long joint keynote session at 9:30 a.m. March 29 during the CTIA Wireless 2007 trade show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
The former heads of state are expected offer individual remarks and then will wrap up their keynote with a question-and-answer session.
“We are honored to welcome Presidents Bush and Clinton to our show,” said Steve Largent, president and CEO of CTIA. “Our attendees expect to hear from notable leaders, industry experts and decision makers on topics of interest to the global marketplace, and we are certain our keynote audience will find the incomparable insights and perspectives of the two presidents enormously appealing.”
Bush is expected to speak about his partnership with Clinton, the on-going importance of community service, and the dramatic impact that wireless companies are having around the world. Bush and Clinton co-founded the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund, which has raised and distributed more than $100 million for victims of hurricane disasters. The former presidents also collaborated on a relief and recovery campaign following the Indian Ocean tsunami in late 2004.
Clinton is expected to speak about globalization issues, including his foundation’s initiative to address HIV/AIDS on a global scale, and natural disaster relief.
Bush served as president for a four-year term before Clinton took the office in 1992 for two consecutive terms.
Former president Jimmy Carter previously keynoted a CTIA show.
