I will be presenting alongside Jon Arnold at VON Canada (on the SMB - The IP Market Opportunity session) this year and Trent Johnsen (Shift CEO) will be on the Show Me The Minutes - Voice Over Broadband panel.
Fellow bloggers, Alec Saunders is giving an Industry Perspective and Mark Evans, speaking, recently pointed to Skype's pending lawsuit as reasoning for their VON Canada with drawl and we already knew that Vonage wasn't participating, they weren't at Spring VON either.
Apparently Shaw has decided not to participate either as I do not see them on the speakers roster nor on the exhibit floor. I am not surprised, in conversation with one of their CSRs (trying to upsell me to Shaw Digital Voice) it was clear to me that they do not want to be associated with VoIP, even though they are doing POTs replacement using VoIP. VON or Voice On the Net show participation would potentially blow their cover.
