Altadena, California (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Elliot Gold, Publisher of TeleSpan, the conferencing industry’s established voice for the audio and videoconferencing industries, announced the speaker’s lineup for the 2013 Future of Conferencing Workshop, and said, “TeleSpan’s Eighth Annual Future of Conferencing Workshop is about "Game Changers". The market is no longer just about offering conference calls or videoconferencing; it's about several new waves, really a tsunami, of collaboration tools and options. It’s a Web-driven social networking driven industry now. As such, we will have the best ever line up of speakers teaching us how to profit in this new environment.”
The workshop to be held in Las Vegas March 7-8, 2013, at the Palace Station Hotel, will focus on the industry momentum within the audio, video and web conferencing markets and is called “Let’s Profit Together”. J D Vaughn, Vice President of Sales for Vidtel, a videoconferencing cloud services provider, and former industry analyst said, “Workshop attendance has grown more than 30% this year due in no small part to the wave of new participants and attendees. New companies like Ten Hands, Vidtel, Drum, Zoom, FireSpotter, Hipdial, Mobileday and Hypervoice join industry leaders like AVI-SPL, Yamaha, Arkadin, Vidyo, PBI, Radisys, and Compunetix to really round out the current and future leaders of conferencing and collaboration. Combined with social media, sales and marketing experts looking at the future, attendees will come away with a treasure chest full of ideas and contacts to help them launch their next wave of profitability.”
The two day Future of Conferencing Workshop features panel discussions on how to build conferencing revenues, a technology sandbox where companies demonstrate technology, and a keynote speech from Dave Michels, Unified Communications and VoIP industry analyst and blogger at Talking Pointz. Social and future networking will also be explored by consultants and experts like Dr. Bob Johansen, Distinguished Fellow, at Institute for the Future.
“WebRTC and BYOD, bring your own device, are very hot issues”, continued Elliot Gold. “We know that WebRTC will help us make the leap from millions of videoconferencing and web conferencing end points to billions of end points and with the leap comes the opportunity for extraordinary profits for our constituency. Our conferencing attendees not only get to explore these incredible new opportunities they will also meet the founders and CEOs of the firms that can deliver the products and services to them to make it happen.” For more information and workshop registration go to http://www.telespan.com/workshop/index.html.
