Here is a pre-show write-up on ITEXPO I just saw on New Telephony. Good stuff. In a pre-show meeting yesterday I was just blown away at how much content there is at this show. Certainly if you have been following the ITEXPO topic page of my blog you are keeping up with much of the activity.
Some of the areas worth noting are IMS, IPTV, triple-play, quintuple-play (by IPDR.org), VoIP peering, FMC, SIP trunking, call center 2.0, enterprise IP communications, how to make money reselling VoIP, etc.
Perhaps most importantly I am excited that so many people who have been named to the top 100 voices of IP communications (expect news on this next week) will be in attendance at the show.
It gets back to what separates ITEXPO from other events. You see this event is the ultimate IP communications experience. You have the networking, the meeting with the press, analysts and financial players and besides that attendees get real solid objective education on what is happening in the future of IP communications. This is why ITEXPO is also a marketplace – the one IP communications event focusing on all the critical aspects of the market that brings buyers.
As I am sure you have noticed, ITEXPOs are not about promoting show management they are about educating decision makers so they can make the most informed decisions. We take this role very seriously. We sweat every detail in making the education as complete as it can be.
Once again we thank all the attendees and exhibitors who allow ITEXPO to grow so rapidly. You will notice the largest exhibit hall ever with a 50×50 booth right in the front of the show. I can’t wait to see it myself!!
