Overall for the week, we at Fiber Mountain were thrilled with the 2017 event. The combination of the IoT conference and IT EXPO with several collocated events provided consistent traffic across all three days, with plenty of influencers and decision makers, and a mix of company types from carriers, ISPs, enterprises and resellers. A special thanks to the TMC team for a job well done and a great all-conference party where all of us got to see and visit with old long-term friends and make new friends.- Bill Miller, Fiber Mountain
"Great Show and Attendance" - Mark Straton, Broadsoft
" I just finished an awesome, standing room-only panel on SD-WAN at the ITExpo that has already been described as the best panel discussion so far on the topic ever at the conference...Now invited by a major service provider in Australia for dinner on the ocean beach"- Akshay Sharma, VP Corporate Strategy, Beesion
If you keep up to date with the latest innovations in communications technology, ITEXPO has always been one of the places to learn, meet key vendors, and network. With a regular winter event in southern Florida every year, it's hard to say "no" to attending. This year did not disappoint, especially with the addition of a co-located Internet of Things (IoT) event and even more to see and experience during your trip to Florida.- Alan Percy, Dialogic Blog, February 15, 2017
"It's been a very interesting Day 1. There have been sessions on a wide range of different topics. Despite having a blizzard in the Mid-Atlantic which has cancelled thousands of flights, there's a good crowd of attendees here."- Hugh Goldstein, VP Strategic Alliances, Voxbone
"ITEXPO is an interesting forum because lots of different people come together from different backgrounds...I was impressed by the vibrant nature. There are a lot of people, a lot of foot traffic, an awful lot of conversations. I was very pleasantly surprised at how busy it was."- Colin Ayer, CTO, SwitchRay
"Really great - it's been very busy, it's been good. We're meeting some current customers, we're meeting some new customers, a lot of people who haven't heard of us before so the exposure's been really good. I am looking forward to seeing people that I've met this time around, looking at how we grow next year." - Bicom Systems
Lot of service providers, lot of new vendors, resellers, agents with the service providers, so basically tons of traffic. It started off with a bang, we're looking to close out strong. We have about 80 cards, 80 follow up calls to do on Friday, it's going to be a busy Friday. I can't wait actually, that's what I love to do. We're looking forward to the next show, we can't wait to be a part of it. We love this event."
- Phil Edholm
"I am excited about the event and great attendance, really seeing a lot of interesting new technologies. You're seeing some end users, a lot of channels, obviously"
"Oh it's been fantastic, we've had a great time. It's really unique for us to be here because we work with both the folks who are here attending the show in terms of the IT buyer - we help them find solutions, and then we also work with a lot of vendors here doing demand generation. So it's been great interacting from both sides - from buyers and sellers. We actually attended in Anaheim last year and had a great experience and we're able to come in Ft. Lauderdale. We are also a media partner for the conference."- Technology Advice
"If you sell or if you work with technology - you have to be at ITEXPO." - VoPero
- IDI Billing Solutions
I've really come away with some good leads, so I was impressed with the quality of the attendees and I was able to connect with some folks I've already been talking to.
"It's been great - we got a speaking slot, had really good attendance there and actually got three customers that want to business right from that event alone. It's been great. We've also got to talk to a number of MSPs - who are a big part of our customer base, a growing part of our customer base. The show's been great for us. - accelops"
It's an audience that we might not necessarily reach otherwise. We're very much in the network and data center space but this gets us in touch with a lot of people who are here for VoIP and carrier work who actually also have data center space, collo space, they can use things like our solutions. It's a great way to get the message out.- Fiber Mountain
It's kind of like a jumping off point for us. Beginning of the year every year. Get a lot of resellers, lots of our distribution partners are down here. It really sets the tone for us throughout the course of the year.- Grandstream
It's a great chance for us to see resellers that we don't get to see often, so it's the one place to meet them. Have dinners and meetings with them and obviously gather new business and gather what's new in the industry.
It was a great experience, we had a great opportunity to meet some resellers that we know and perhaps onboard some resellers that we haven't seen in the past. It's our third year at the show.
