We have been seeing a surge of registrations for TMC’s ITEXPO, the hotel room block has been oversold for over a month and we feel the industry getting more excited than ever for ITEXPO – the ultimate event which brings global buyers and sellers together in the communications and tech spaces. Carriers (wired and wireless), enterprise decision-makers, resellers, developers and industry all will be at the show in numbers close to last year. It is virtually impossible to determine show attendance in advance but based on the numbers I saw in the registration database this morning, we could have a show at least as busy as least year if not even busier.
Remember that earlier this year TMC had a record show in Miami – ITEXPO East 2009. The event was up 15% in attendance thanks to you and it was the most qualified mix of visitors ever according to exhibitors.
This is the show’s tenth anniversary and the 20th show! Our goal is to make every one better than the last and it seems based on the numbers we have so far this ITEXPO will be as good as all the other ones which draw purchasing decision-makers from over 110 countries each year.
For more, here are comments (video) from Michael Genaro Executive Vice President of Operations at TMC and below is an email which I sent to TMC’s readership earlier today.

I Keep Finding More Reasons to Attend ITEXPO:
Smart Grid and M2M Conferences; Avaya Social Networking
One week out from ITEXPO West 2009 in L.A., and each time I visit the show Web site, I see more and more compelling reasons to make a trip to LA for the show.
Here are three more collocated events where you can learn and network – all in an effort to expand your
business and take advantage of growing segments of the communications market.
Sponsored by Redline Communications – Tuesday, September 1, 2009
Just added to the program a few weeks ago, The Smart Grid Summit is the first event of its kind to address the unprecedented opportunity coming from the intersection of two core building blocks of our
economy – utilities and communications.
The Smart Grid Summit is devoted to a sector poised for the same fundamental transformation that telecom experienced with the advent of IP communications.
Come understand the role that IP communications technologies will play in how the Smart Grid evolves – not just for making utilities more efficient, but also for enabling the Smart Home and a new generation of communications innovations.
Free one-day conference sponsored by MultiTech Systems – Tuesday, September 1, 2009
Telemetry has been changing to take advantage of the Internet, where WAN and LAN systems were points of aggregation in the past, today’s machines benefit from the ability to connect worldwide. And as the machines continue to look to network, the wireless world represents a large growth opportunity for data communication.
Today, machine to machine solutions are driving data demand with tight vertical integration for specific industries like healthcare, refinery or transportation or supporting the general IT needs and cross industry requirements associated data centers, facilities and security.
The Social Enterprise – Are you ready for it?
Free Workshop and Reception for all ITEXPO Attendees Monday, August 31, 2009, 7:00pm – 9:30pm – Westin Hotel
This is where you can learn how to integrate Facebook, Twitter and other platforms into your enterprise and customer communications.
You will have a chance to listen to and meet Paul Dunay, the author of “Facebook Marketing for Dummies”, and get a chance to check out Avaya Labs innovations.
Social media is becoming a more important element in corporate marketing and communications and I really give Avaya tremendous credit for choosing to educate companies on the topic.
As an added bonus the event will conclude with some handcrafted ales from the Bonaventure Brewing Company.
Here are more details and event registration.
