There was tremendous buzz about Microsoft's multiple announcements at ITEXPO West 2008 in Los Angeles last week and I was very happy to hear that ITEXPO was the best show Microsoft's Response Point team has ever been involved with. It is humbling... But we are just doing our job and as always we do our best to keep our customers and the industry happy.
I really think Microsoft's addition to the marketplace will mark a change in our industry and it is worth partnering with them where possible to add value to the company's various solutions.
Read Best Show Ever for Response Point
from the Response Point Team Blog for more.
What is perhaps most exciting for me is how many ITEXPO exhibitors did business at the show. There were many deals taking place on the exhibit floor and exhibitors told me they were selling continent by continent as so many people speaking different languages showed up to buy products.
Going forward we are looking to Make ITEXPO in Miami, Feb 2-4 even better than Los Angeles. Miami generally attracts all of Latin America, the Caribbean and much of Europe. I expect this next show to be busier than ever as ITEXPO becomes an even stronger magnet for serious communications purchasers worldwide. Oh -- and don't forget all those US buyers who will be there while escaping the cold for a few days.
So once again, thanks to all of you -- buyers and sellers who came to the show and conducted business. We can't wait to see you again on the east coast.
