The UN Of VoIP

September 23, 2005

Once again the international community is pouring into ITEXPO. We are not only getting Tier one carriers and Fortune 1,000 companies at a rapid clip we are seeing a massive amount of international companies registering. We do expect to easily hit 7,500 attendees onsite.

I am absolutely amazed at how much activity there is in our database. I have never-ever seen so many people signing up for ITEXPO… Not even during the 2000 timeframe.

People always ask what sort of attendance breakdown we will have.

Expect about 2,000 service providers – tier 1,2,3.

Apprentice With Martha

I had a chance to see a little Donald and Martha Apprentice last night and the comparisons were amazing. Donald’s boardroom is an intimidating place while Martha’s seems a lot more cozy and relaxed. Not only the décor put me at ease but Martha’s demeanor was very pleasant.

My wife wondered if she isnt being especially nice so as to mellow her image. Many people call her the B word (one day I imagine my kids will read my blog).
