West! Communications ASP Conference & Expo 2001
It's summertime. Are you feeling the heat? Why not
escape the heat at the Bay -- San Francisco Bay to be
precise. That's exactly where we'll be heading come
August, for Communications ASP Conference & Expo
2001, which is to be held at the historic Fairmont Hotel
in downtown San Francisco on August 8-10. This exciting
first-time event will feature informative conferences on
the technologies and services that drive the burgeoning
hosted communications industry, as well as an intimate
Exhibit Hall filled with industry leaders ready to share
their knowledge and experience. It's abundantly obvious
that the future of communications will be in providing
services above and beyond POTS.
To that end, our conferences will focus on
cutting-edge technologies like softswitch deployment, IP
phones and appliances, IP Centrex, Voice over IP (VoIP),
and vertical market opportunities. We will also offer
information on building sales and support channels, as

services to market. If you're looking for information on
outsourced communications opportunities, this is the
place to find it! Attendance will consist of
communications ASPs, enterprise end users, resellers,
wireless/PCS providers, telcos, ISPs, next-gen telcos,

Fairmont Hotel, which sits on top of the city's Nob
Hill, provides outstanding views of San Francisco and
the Bay. The building has been renovated to mirror its
1906 reconstruction, with features like marble floors
and mosaic tiles. The hotel has also been a haven for
many performers over the years, including Frank Sinatra.
