, announced that it has been named a recipient of Tradeshow Week's Fastest 50 award, which goes to the fifty fastest-growing events in the North America trade show industry, based on percentage growth and net square footage of growth between 2002 and 2004. Combined with the recent announcement that the VoiceCon Fall exhibition floor has completely sold out, this recognition reaffirms VoiceCon's position as the premier event for voice, IP Telephony and convergence technologies, products, systems and services.
The VoiceCon heritage has been to deliver in-depth technical sessions, prominent speakers and strategy discussions, which attracts high level enterprise decision makers to review the latest products, and to meet and network with potential partners, consultants and analysts. This has never been more evident than at VoiceCon Fall
, taking place this week at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, which includes every major vendor in the enterprise voice, IP telephony and converged network market. VoiceCon provides attendees an unmatched opportunity to meet with leading vendors to solve their IP Telephony needs.
"The market for enterprise voice, IP telephony and converged networks is changing and growing at a remarkable rate," said Fred Knight, VoiceCon General Manager. "For the past 15 years, VoiceCon has been the flash point for identifying the technologies and business trends that have been shaping the future of the market, while providing practical insight into the choices faced by enterprise IT and telecom executives."
"The TSW Fastest 50 awards are given to the industry events that have demonstrated the strongest growth over the past three years," said Adam Schaffer, Publisher, Tradeshow Week. "Based on this impressive growth, VoiceCon has clearly distinguished itself by being named to this prestigious list."
