There has been more interest in ITEXPO Fall 2008, Los Angeles, CA September 16-18 than any other Internet Telephony Conference & Expo I can remember in recent years. It seems people are beginning to realize this show is the only major IP communications event left -- it is growing quickly and it draws attendees from around the world.
If you are looking to reach service providers, enterprise customers, SMBs, resellers or the communications industry at large -- you should consider being at this show.
A participating companies list I picked up from an upcoming TMC press release is as follows but really, every important company in telecom will be represented in multiple ways. (please do not get offended if your company is not here. If I added all participating companies -- my readers would get fired because they would spend their work day trying to get through it all -- instead of getting their jobs done).
ITEXPO is really becoming the communication industry's main event worldwide and I can tell you that the attendance from high-level analysts and editors has never been greater either. My team has done an amazing job working with industry thought leaders to develop a conference program which is as good as any I have ever seen.
ITEXPO is the one event you need to be at to network with peers -- the most experienced and intelligent (seriously - we test them ;) ) will be there. In addition, every important facet of telecom will be covered from FMC to mobility; open source to SaaS; contact center to OCS.
There will even be discussion of virtual worlds, web 2.0, mashups, social media and everything you need to know in the communications space.
In short, we call on the collective minds of hundreds if not thousands within the industry when putting together our conference program and then we work with absute best and brightest to ensure we focus where should.
If you haven't noticed, I am a bit enthusiastic about this show. I didn't even resort to things like telling you that if you come to the show you can win a Prius or hear a top Skype, Sonus or Microsoft speaker. See how I've evolved over the years?
Hope to see you at the show.
