ITEXPO West 2009 Draws More Than 6,000 Enterprise, Service Provider, and Channel Decision Makers to Exhibit Hall and Conferences

TMCnet News
Norwalk, CT, (September 15, 2009) – Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC (News - Alert)), announced attendance figures and demographics for its recent ITEXPO West event, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center earlier this month.

Of the 6,109 in attendance, those from Enterprise comprised 28.5 percent. Service providers accounted for 26 percent. Resellers/Integrators constituted 31.8 percent of attendees and developers/manufacturers made up the remaining 13.7 percent.

ITEXPO (News - Alert) continues to be the premier venue for professionals interested in learning about the issues, trends, challenges and core disruptive technologies driving communications solutions and their applications forward.  Total attendance increased 3 percent from last year’s event.
With several collocated events at ITEXPO, including the Smart Grid Summit, 4G Wireless Evolution Conference, or “4GWE,” and the M2M Evolution, or “Machine to Machine,” Conference, there were a total of 214 presenters in attendance. 
 “We at TMC and our exhibitors are pleased with the traffic in our exhibit hall. Despite economic pressures, and the impact of the Station wildfire on local visitors, the exhibits at ITEXPO drew extremely well,” said Rich Tehrani, chief executive officer of TMC and conference chair.  “Buyers and resellers of IT communications technologies see ITEXPO as the premier event in the industry, and we’re committed to continuously evolving the show, to meet the ever changing demands of our customers.”
Jim Dalton (News - Alert), chief executive officer of TransNexus, Inc. said, “Overall ITEXPO West was good. I am always interested in trade show attendance and vibrancy since they are good business indicators for our market. Attendance at the keynotes seemed to be up from last year. More importantly, I did not detect any gloom. The continued growth of VoIP in a recession is a good sign for rapid growth of the VoIP business when the overall market rebounds.”
Chris Muller, director, Communications for PAETEC (News - Alert), echoed the sentiment: “ITEXPO was a great show. TMC always does an outstanding job of bringing together the industry, especially a vast number of serious buyers.”
The ITEXPO team is preparing for its next event, ITEXPO East, coming to the Miami Beach Convention Center, January 20-22, 2010.  In addition to the collocated 4GWE, M2M and Smart Grid Conferences, ITEXPO East will be the venue for Digium|Asterisk World, in addition to the ITEXPO exhibition.
When ITEXPO West returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center during October 4-6, 2010, it will not only offer the ITEXPO conference program and exhibit hall, it will also have coinciding events: Smart Grid Summit, M2M Conference, 4GWE, and new Smart Networks and CVx programs. Information about these events will be posted on:
