NETWORKING DRINKS & PARTY
Capitalize on unique networking opportunities, including the happy hour on the expo floor and at the conference kick-off party. Strike up conversations with industry experts and build meaningful new relationships. We had a blast at Container Bar Austin!
For me this was a great show because rather than overarching product/solution themes it was the whole new software-defined networking trend that the Big Telecom Event was successfully able to capture from the keynotes to some very insightful session tracks. I think the Light Reading team did an excellent task in bringing the key industry thought leaders together in keynotes, panels, parties and on the show floor to coalesce around the whole software-defined networking industry theme.
SK Telecom Americas
Great and informative event. It's unlike any other conference I've attended before where vendors and customers collaborate and discuss issues together. I'm glad to see OTT players like Google also participating in events like this and sharing their expertise
