ST. HELENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leaders from all aspects of the Unified Communications (UC) industry are gathering in La Jolla, California, March 27-30, 2011, for a two and a half day conference, presented by UCStrategies, focusing on networking, building new relationships and product/market education.
The UC Summit’s unique format brings together large and small UC vendors, select channel partners, and end-user consultants, providing recruiting opportunities for vendors of all sizes, as well as industry education, and business networking for all participants. Executives from select reseller organizations and end-user consultancies will hear from a cross section of vendors representing the various products that go into a UC solution, while learning about best practices from their peers.
According to Jim Burton, CEO and Co-Founder of UCStrategies, “The Summit is a unique networking event – it’s like belonging to a private club where everyone is open to a conversation with a fellow member. Every vendor has access to the reseller executives for networking and partnership opportunities. The resellers and consultants can hear from both major vendors and important smaller vendors - without the usual hard sell - while exchanging information in an interactive, small group setting.”
Here’s what participants had to say about the previous UC Summit:
- The event exceeded my expectations, which were pretty high to start with. The setting, intimacy, time to network, and sessions all gave the event a vibrancy and synergy that made it such a success. - Battles Consulting
- I especially enjoyed the discussions among the VARs and consultants. The intimacy of the conference enabled that. I also enjoyed the small group sessions with the manufacturer. - Bruce H. Burgess
- I established new business connections and associations. I learned about vendors I was not aware of, strengthened existing relationships, and learned more about some of the major vendors. It definitely allowed me to expand my vendor and product knowledge. - Dennis H. Goodhart
- The format and ability to interact rather than just listen is unique and of great value. The industry has an uphill battle to make UC a success, but the UC summit has made a serious contribution to moving in that direction! - Rick Kent
- While the entire conference was a good investment, it was especially valuable to spend time with our consultant colleagues and to meet integrators who may become the recipients of our future UC-business process RFPs. - Dorothy Lockard
