From the Inside Mar/Apr 2011

Welcome to the International Spectrum 2011 Conference!

For those who are here in Florida, Welcome, Enjoy… I'm sure we will be talking throughout the conference.

For those that were unable to make it, don't feel left out. Spectrum 2011 has two events: Live and Virtual. Our Live event is full of education and networking, I know many of you wanted to join us but were unable to join us due to budget constraints.

This is where the Virtual conference comes in. April 12-14 are the dates for the Virtual part of our conference. Now, the question you likely have is — what is the differences?

Well, it's not different but an extension of the Live conference. Trying to find all the solutions available to you can sometimes be hard and time consuming, but the Live and Virtual conference allow you to see all the products and services in one place.

The Virtual Conference provides you access to our sponsors to either initiate new conversations, or continue ones that you have started at another time. Each of our sponsors has access to our Instant Message servers to schedule available times when they will be free to talk with you. Some of the sponsors may be providing you the ability to talk with different people within the company as well.

In addition to the Instant Message chats, you can access and download On-Demand Videos provided by the exhibitors. These give you even more information about vendor products and solutions.

Some, though not all, of the Live conference sessions will also be available On-Demand during that time as well. The On-Demand session will give you the basics you may need or want to get started with a solution to whatever problem you are looking to address.

For those of you here at the Live conference, you get access to the Virtual content as well as part of your attendance to the Live Conference. Also keep a look out around the conference for the QR code hunt. You may win something.
