The IP Communications industry is changing rapidly, with a wealth of new innovations, expanding financial
projections, and a steady stream of new companies entering the field. In fact, over the past eight years, there
has been only one constant in the industry - the biggest event in the industry has been, and continues to
be, INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO.
Since we first launched ITEXPO in 1999, more than 60,000 IP Professionals from around the world have
joined us at our events on both coasts. They come by
the thousands from all over the globe to ITEXPO, to learn in the educational sessions, exchange ideas,
develop new contacts, and to meet with vendors like you on the exhibit floor. Just as they have done for the past eight years.
In some ways, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
And now with our collocated events - IMS Expo and Call Center 2.0 - there is more being offered for these attendees, and we are
expecting our biggest crowd ever.
What better place is there to fill your sales pipeline and develop valuable new relationships for 2007 than at the world's
largest IP Communications event?
INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO has grown each year since 1999 into what is now the World's Largest Global IP
Marketplace. What was once an over-crowded event squeezed into a hotel ballroom is now an enormous event filled with activity
and occupying a convention center. As IP Communications continues to grow in popularity, so too does INTERNET TELEPHONY
Conference & EXPO.
Global Reach of TMC's Media Vehicles
One of the main reasons that the conference has grown like this is TMC's position as an information leader in the IP
Communications industry. People attend this conference to learn - both in the classroom and in face-to-face meetings - and they
are able to do so unlike at any other event. The end result is huge crowds of very interested IP professionals. And we now offer six
full tracks of courses, appealing to all sectors - service providers, resellers, enterprises, government, developers, and more,
meaning regardless of whom you want to meet, they will be at ITEXPO in droves!
INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO East will be held January 23-26, 2007 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I encourage you to call
our sales team today to discuss the many options we have to drive these record crowds to your booth and increase your sales for
the next year and beyond.
At INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, you'll have access to decision makers from around the world
looking to buy products, including more service providers, enterprises, government buyers, resellers and developers than any
competitive event in the market. We've completely sold out the exhibit floor of the past four conferences, and fully expect to do so
again in Ft. Lauderdale -- so reserve your space today. Contact Us to Exhibit
Come see for yourself why this is the only event attracting new customers and why deals are made in such large numbers!
Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Conference Chairman
ITEXPO is the Place Where You’ll Meet
One thing that is unique about INTERNET TELEPHONY
Conference & EXPO when compared with other events in the
industry is the number of new people exhibitors meet. At
some events, it seems the only customers who come to your
booth are those who have an appointment. At ITEXPO, you’ll
have access to thousands of potential customers in the exhibit
hall, at the receptions, and in the keynote sessions.
You’ll meet people you didn’t expect to meet! People who
are in a position to buy your product, and are asking the kind
of probing questions only serious customers would ask.
It is this steady stream of new customers that keeps
exhibitors coming back year after year. Some exhibitors have
even called it “the ROI Event” because they actually close
enough deals while on the exhibit floor to pay for their trip
ten times over!

We had tremendous traffic. The
attendees were interrupting the demos to
ask great questions and essentially drove
every demo. So not only did you bring in
the crowds, but these were qualified,
focused attendees. Excellent job!

When you look at the numbers, 73% of attendees said they plan to purchase a product they saw at the last ITExpo; and more
than 60% of attendees plan to spend at least $250,000 this year on IP products. That means there are literally thousands of

Through our massive media reach and successful organizational partnerships, we are able to make nearly 20 million
marketing impressions prior to INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO. This has two benefits — we reach
hundreds of thousands of potential attendees and deliver our message to them over and over, ensuring that when
they come to the show they know what to expect. Secondly, the sponsors of ITEXPO are included in most of our
advertising and marketing efforts, meaning they also receive nearly 20 million marketing impressions.
Aggressive Marketing Campaign Attracts
Your Best Prospects
With our partnerships with other leading publications we
are able to secure ads in dozens of magazines,
newspapers, and Web sites. In each of these ads we
include our major sponsors — meaning sponsors receive
ads in leading publications, such as eWeek, Network
World and major daily newspapers, such as the Miami
Herald. All together, these ads will reach an estimated 12
The Industry’s Leading Web Site TMCnet is the leading Web site in
the IP Communications industry,
receiving more than one million
unique visitors per month. All major sponsors of ITExpo
receive exposure on the Web site with banner ads, direct
links from the ITExpo site, featured stories, blogs, and more.
Over the course of the six months of promotion, that can
mean millions of additional impressions for ITExpo sponsors.
E-mail and E-Newsletters
With featured stories, banner ads, and regular listings
in our eNewsletters, sponsors receive an additional
250,000 exposures per month. Beyond that, our
exclusive opt-in e-mail list reaches an additional

the event and our sponsors’ products & services.

industry, TMC is able to provide even more exposure to ITExpo
sponsors with advertisements and features. The combined
readership between INTERNET TELEPHONY, IMS Magazine, SIP
Magazine, and Customer [email protected] Solutions is nearly 500,000
Focus on Educational Content Ensures the Highest Quality Attendees
The reason the attendees of INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO are the best you'll
find at a trade show is because they come to the event to learn — both in the sessions and
from you on the exhibit floor. They are serious about enhancing their knowledge and are at
the event because they want to make their business better.
The reason they choose INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO is the unparalleled
quality of the educational courses offered. As the publishers of the industry’s leading
magazines — INTERNET TELEPHONY, IMS Magazine, SIP Magazine, and Customer
[email protected] Solutions, and the industry’s leading and most informative Web site, TMCnet,
we are in a unique position to serve as the thought leaders of this emerging industry. Our team of editors spends literally
months gathering abstracts from respected companies and building a comprehensive program built on providing true
education, not on satisfying an exhibitor's desire to deliver a canned pitch in their session.
This focus on quality educational content delivers only the most serious attendees, who, in turn, become the most dedicated customers.
Collocated Events will attract even more attendees
In addition to the in-depth information at ITEXPO, we will be collocating two additional events, attracting even more
top level attendees. Additionally, we willl be partnering with leading organizations to offer special enhanced
workshops appealing to an even larger crowd. Attendees of all of these events will be on the ITEXPO, floor giving
exhibitors unsurpassed access to the best audience of any event in the industry.
INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO
is the ROI Show
Some other conferences are really no more than pre-arranged meetings and parties. INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO is
known in the industry as the event where you'll meet the new customers that you need, and the only one that delivers ROI you
expect. Year after year, exhibitors and sponsors rave about their return on investment as they generate so much new business as a
result of the event. Not just generating leads, but actual sales - some even completed on site before the show is over - that more
than pay for the cost of exhibiting or sponsoring. No other event can come close to delivering this kind of ROI!
If you're looking for a party, there are plenty of other events to look at. If you're looking to grow your
business, the only choice is to exhibit at INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO.
Five minutes after the show opened on Wednesday night, I
was unable to get near my booth. The attendees were lined
up ten-deep waiting to view our products and to speak to our
reps. This is by far the best VoIP show out there. Both here
and at the L.A. show last fall, we actually turned a profit
solely on orders placed on the show floor! We have reserved
a 50' x 50' booth space at the next show in San Diego to
accommodate all of the demand.
