have been at in nearly three years"
- Howard Kendall, Intertex
"I attended the INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference
& EXPO in Miami to improve my knowledge of enterprise IP PBX solutions and
to find new applications that could meet our business requirements. I
believe that it was the most informative conference that I have attended on
IP telephony to date. The sessions were thorough, understandable, and
unbiased. There were opportunities to meet both with vendors and with other
enterprises planning a switch to IP telephony. All in all, it was a very
valuable conference for me."
- Pierre Simard, Ottawa, Ontario Canada
"This is our second attendance at the
INTERNET TELEPHONY show. Last year, our first-ever show presence at the Long
Beach Expo, we did a small table top demo and it was just fantastic for us.
This year we're back in force with a full booth and it's been an even better
show for us. One of the things people ask about a lot is what are the
results after the show? It's terrific that you see a lot of people, that
your booth is mobbed, but what happens to you in the days and weeks after
the show. Well, after the show in Long Beach things just totally took off
for Qovia. We've had tremendous interest from our key customer sets in the
OEM, in the reseller area and in the enterprise customers. This week, we've
had a chance to meet with a bunch of absolutely fantastic prospects. We came
here to meet with enterprise customers, we came here to sign up and meet
with dealers, we came here to meet with people from a new market for us,
Latin America; and we came to meet with press, industry analysts, and other
top thought leaders in the space. We got to see them all; we got to talk to
them all, we'll be back in Long Beach."

"Good morning, this is Ron Weaver, I'm
the Chief Executive Officer of Viper Networks, speaking to you live and
direct from the INTERNET TELEPHONY show in Miami. I want to share with you
what a tremendous show this has been for us. No, this is not a paid
advertisement. We are so overjoyed at the response we've had on the show
floor. We've had literally 23 investors want to increase their level of
participation in our company. We have now at least four expressions of
interest from international distribution companies. And we have over 230,
yes 230 leads for direct sales or distribution and representation of our
product here in the U.S. and in Latin America. So, for this man's
perspective, this is a very good show. It's money well spent, it's time well
spent, and the TMC staff is just impeccable."
- Ron Weaver, CEO, Viper Networks
"Hi, my name is Rene Tuerlings and I'm
with Gee Fon. I just like to thank everyone here at the Internet Telephony
organization. This has been a wonderful show for us. Gee Fon did its launch
and official bring to market right here at the show. Hundreds if not
thousands of people have come to our booth. It's been a wonderful
experience. We've also noticed that not only national but international
representation was here from other countries, which really surprised us.
It's obvious to see that not only INTERNET TELEPHONY is hot, but shows like
this are going to make it even bigger. We are really pleased and look
forward to being back here soon."
- Rene Tuerlings, Gee Fon
"Hi my name is Ken Vanderipe, I work for
Aculab USA. Something I've noticed about the show this year is more leads,
more traffic than I saw at Supercomm this past year. And the quality of the
leads has been tremendous. The customers that stopped by are ready to learn
about product and buy product, and not just stop by to ask what we were
showing. They already had an idea what we were showing. I view this show as

Alec Saunders fro Versatel Networks. We came to INTERNET TELEPHONY to target
service providers. And I've got to tell you, this has been THE best, bar
none, show we have done in the last two years. We're probably going to walk
out of here and close four or five new customers in the next month. It's

"Hi This is John Rooney, president of Viola
Networks here at the INTERNET TELEPHONY conference in Miami. We came to this
conference because it is specifically about our market. We are a small
software company, and it was an opportunity to meet similar companies in our
market space, and these are dollars very well spent. We had five people at
the booth. All five of us were speaking to customers ALL DAY. This is THE
best show we've ever exhibited at -- CTOs, CIOs, CEOs -- all high quality
leads. These are very savvy attendees and qualified buyers. We ran out of
800 pieces of literature on the first day! It's been a wonderful conference
for us, far exceeding our expectations."

"Hi, I'm Ben Freedman, VP of Marketing for Jasomi Networks.
We're here in beautiful Miami, Florida for the TMC INTERNET TELEPHONY expo
show. Let me tell you, it's been a fabulous show for us. The last couple of
years we've seen a steady growth
in traffic at these shows. This really makes me think that 2004 is the year
of VoIP. The traffic at this show has been incredible. We've seen some great
ISP customers, some carrier customers, some smaller CLEC and RBOC customers
as well. I think we'll do a lot of business from this show. We've been
showing our wonderful new peer point product, best in class NAT traversal
device. The response has just been wonderful. So much so that we are really
looking forward to coming down to Long Beach CA. So, we'll see you there at
IT Expo in the Fall."

much. It is a very good show."

We are manufacturers of electronic enclosures and single board computers.
We're here to show our products to the telco industry. We have enclosures in
various form factors, compact PCI, PCI and of course the advanced TCA
chassis. This show has been great. It's probably the best telco show we've
been to now in three years. And we had a tremendous amount of traffic here
yesterday and today. We've been very pleased. The customer base here is
exactly what we've been looking for. We've had more leads from this show
than we've had from the last two years combined. Last year was a great show,
but this year has been the best show in three years."

"Hello my name is Eric
Schummer, I'm with Digital Talk. Actually, we came to the show because we
are launching our company here at the show. I have to
say that the results have been extraordinary. We
have had many, many CLECs and call centers coming in to find solutions and
try to understand what is the most inexpensive, affordable yet powerful
solutions they can implement in their existing infrastructure. We think we
have the solution for them. We are very happy to follow up. We have created
a lot of work for ourselves here. We are very happy with the results."
- Eric Schummer, PC Fonica
"We came to do this show this year to find
VARs. We really weren't sure what to expect. We set up our display yesterday
and the entire day was filled with one after another of the perfect
customer, the dream customer that we came here to see. Out of the 200 or so
people that I talked to, I only want 10 of these to become customers and
that would make business enough for us for two years. We spanned the globe
at this show in one afternoon. We're very happy to be here."
- Steve Comstock, I2 Telecom
"We're back here at the INTERNET TELEPHONY
show in Miami. AltiGen is really excited to be here. This has been a great
show for AltiGen.. We have a great relationship with TMC. Great weather,
great show. I think yesterday we had probably the best day that we've ever
had at the INTERNET TELEPHONY show. I don't think my partner and I had a
chance to speak to each other all day we were so busy talking to potential
customers and potential partners. This is a wonderful show and we're really
excited to be here."
