Broadvox VP David Byrd Kicks Off ITEXPO Keynote Schedule

January 23, 2008

David Byrd, vice president of marketing and product management at Broadvox kicked off the Internet Telephony Conference and EXPO Keynote schedule here in Miami Beach Wednesday evening with a presentation entitled Assessing SIP Trunking.   Byrd, who was the CEO of Planet at one point in his career, started by telling a story of how different some of the major investors were. Jackie Chan was a good guy, Byrd said, and was always willing to give an autograph to a fan. Sylvester Stallone on the other hand, was not so keen on giving his autograph, and managed to upset a fan and investor in the company. As CEO, Byrd went to Stallone and convinced him to sign several autographs for the fan so she could give them out to her friends.

ITEXPO: Anticipation Building

January 22, 2008

As I sit here in the show office, overlooking the work in progress that exhibit hall floor of ITEXPO, I am amazed at how well and how fast the show is coming together.   My perch above the floor gives an interesting perspective. When I walked into the building this morning the hall was a giant cavernous space, and I’ve been watching as the show decorator has transformed the space into what is quickly becoming a trade show floor complete with booths, carpeting, signs and the rest.   By the time tomorrow evening’s Grand Opening Welcome Reception sponsored by Aculab kicks off in the exhibit hall, the empty space will be just a memory and the exciting buzz of networking will fill the air.   This is the part I love most about trade shows… the anticipation, the build up, the “blur”...   I can’t wait for the conference to start.   And I can’t wait to see you in Miami Beach!  

Destination Miami Beach: I Have Arrived

January 21, 2008

Just hit the ground in Miami Beach FL. Boy, is this a welcome change of pace from the weather back in NY when I got up thismorning and made my way to the airport! It was 11 degrees when I left. Low 70’s when I landed.

EXPO Time Again!

January 18, 2008

I can’t believe how fast the time has flown by. It seems like just yesterday we began work on the conference program for Internet Telephony Conference & EXPO. And yet, somehow it’s time to pack up my travel gear, toss the coffee mug into the sink (it’s about time) and head off to the airport.   Well, ok maybe not exactly yet, but soon.
