Last year’s inaugural event in Miami was standing room-only...
…What I need to state clearly here is this was an electric event…it was a packed event - guessing 200 people. The energy in the room was unlike any other ITExpo session. I attend quite a few telecom events every year and I never describe any of the meetings or sessions as "electric”.…It was so nice to feel this innovative startup spirit alive at an industry conference… - Dave Michels, PinDropSoup
