Communicado to Present Conference Session at INTERNET TELEPHONY� Conference & EXPO West 2008

TMCnet News
SANTA ANA, Calif., 8/4/2008 — Communicado (News - Alert), Inc. today announced that Kerry Shih has accepted an invitation to present a session titled “Top 10 Ways to Get the Most From Microsoft Unified Communications Today”  at TMC’s (News - Alert) INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO West 2008 on September 18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.

INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, held September 16-18, 2008, is the world’s largest and best-attended IP Communications trade show.  At the 2007 west coast event last September, the show drew over 7,000 buyers and sellers of IP Communications products and services.  The show in September will be the 18th INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, and TMC projects total attendance to once again exceed 7,000.

“Business interest in unified communications was amplified by Microsoft's (News - Alert) Fall 2007 announcement of deep integration of UC capabilities into its Microsoft Office suite, supporting real-time collaboration,” said Communicado’s Shih.  “While sales and operations professionals might believe that UC is only an MS Office upgrade away, IT managers view UC as highly complex and somewhat risky.  This disconnect presents value-added resellers with IP telephony expertise with a huge opportunity to help their IT customers orchestrate their UC rollout either by providing guidance on how they can manage it themselves or by guaranteeing UC service levels by managing it for the customer as a service.”
“We are very pleased that Kerry Shih will be participating in this year’s show.   Communicado is widely recognized and respected as an industry leader, and I am confident that our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear his perspective on Unified Communications,” said TMC president and conference chairman, Rich Tehrani (News - Alert).  “Over the past twelve months, widespread deployment of IP Communications services by global service providers, businesses and governments has reinforced that this exciting technology is a viable, cost-effective communications solution.  As a result, we are seeing a significant number of senior-level executives attending INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO as a means of learning about the technology so they too can take advantage of its benefits.”
Registration for the show is now open. Anyone interested may register by visiting Limited booth space is still available as well. Vendors interested in exhibiting at the show should contact Dave Rodriguez (News - Alert) at 1-203-852-6800, ext. 146 or at [email protected].
