ITEXPO 2020 #TECHSUPERSHOW RECAP​

It’s already been one week since ITEXPO 2020 wrapped in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and SkySwitch couldn’t be more excited about the outcome of the event. Not only were we exhibitors, but the SkySwitch team could be found speaking and moderating various sessions throughout the #TECHSUPERSHOW. 

If you missed us there, no worries. Here’s a full recap of everything SkySwitch at ITEXPO:

Tuesday 2/11 –  On ITEXPO day 1, the team could be seen running in and out of the expo hall. We reserved this day to get everything set up and ready to go for you on day two.

Wednesday, 2/12 –  During ITEXPO day 2, our VP of Business Development, Harlan Hamlin, led a panel on “Implementing Kari’s Law and Other New E911 Requirements.” This informative discussion taught us how implementing simple updates on multi-line telephones can help improve the reaction times of first responders and save lives in the community. Kari’s Law went into effect only four days after this panel on February 16, 2020, and we announced a necessary SkySwitch upgrade in support of new E911 requirements.

Thursday, 2/13 – ITEXPO day 3 continued with an engaging panel discussion in The Cloud Voice Alliance suite, “Adding Cloud Voice To Your Existing Portfolio & What To Look For In A White Label Partner.” Our Founder and President, Eric Hernaez, spoke on this panel alongside Jon Arnold, Research Analyst, and SkySwitch reseller, Guy Fawkes, CEO of Telepath Communications and Club 1000 member. 

The discussion was heavily driven by the audience, who had questions about how to effectively transition customers towards newer technologies, how to sell to tricky industries, like non-profits, and how local resellers can differentiate themselves from large, national brands and succeed. Interestingly, SkySwitch resellers in the audience were actively participating and offering their own words of advice to those who were new to reselling telecom. Moments like those truly showcased how strong the #SkySwitchCommunity is.

Friday, 2/14 – ITEXPO day 4 wrapped up with another great day of networking in the expo hall. Along with this, our CMO, Andy Abramson, participated on a panel on “Modern Marketing for MSPs.” His panel explained how to boost your current marketing strategy by utilizing current marketing, advertising and public relations trends and resources. If you were circulating the #TECHSUPERSHOW, you probably also had the chance to see Andy moderating multiple sessions throughout the conference.
