IMCCA Adds Participants To Collaboration Week Silicon Valley

October 2019 Event Follows on Heels of Successful Collaboration Week NY

 

 

 

New York, NY (September 26 2019) – The IMCCA, a leading voice for the UCC (Unified Conferencing and Collaboration) industry for more than 20 years, today announced additional sponsors, locations and program elements for Collaboration Week Silicon Valley. Scheduled for October 28-30, 2019, the three-day event focuses on new and exciting solutions and trends in the UCC space and offers exciting opportunities for end users, integrators, consultants and manufacturers.

The three daytime programs will be hosted at three different sites – provided by Intuit on Monday, Poly on Tuesday and Amazon on Wednesday.  The program details – posted on the event’s website ( www.CollaborationWeek.org ) – include presentations from industry analysts (including Nemertes Research’s Irwin Lazar and Talking Pointz’s Dave Michels) IMCCA board members (including David Danto, Ann Earon and Karl Hantho) and many industry end-users.  The sessions offer free registration, and feature breakfast and lunch, as well as a number of great attendee prizes such as UC video cameras and headsets.

 

In addition to the sessions, The IMCCA today announced that their Gala Dinner Tuesday evening will honor industry legend Bob Hagerty with an Emerging Technology Fellow – Lifetime Achievement Award.  Bob has spent three decades supporting the collaboration space in his roles with Polycom, Smart, Palm, and iControl, and now serves as the Chairman of the Board of Poly (the now combined Plantronics and Polycom company.)  Registration for the dinner includes a small $20 fee to ensure that registrants are serious about attending the event that has limited capacity.

 

The growing list of sponsors and participating organizations for the event currently includes Intel, AVI Systems, Amazon, BlueJeans, Compunetix, Crestron, Intuit, Logitech, Pexip, Poly, Rec.VC, Vyopta, Yorktel and Zoom.

 

In February of this year, The IMCCA hosted their first Collaboration Week in New York, with more than 300 attendees attending the various functions. The highly successful inaugural event highlighted new and better ways to collaborate and communicate through a variety of on-site visits and curated panel discussions.

 

“Collaboration Week is an important industry initiative that offers the opportunity for organizations and other interested parties to learn more about our industry and how the technology is being used to craft intelligent and cost-efficient UC and collaborative solutions,” said Carol Zelkin, Executive Director, IMCCA. “Our goal is to continue providing industry professionals with learning and networking experiences that are accessible and pertinent for their geographic region.”

Collaboration Week Silicon Valley will include meetings at end user sites, manufacturer / service provider sites in the Silicon Valley area, as well as tours and panel discussions. Attendees will be able to join any or all functions of interest to them. Attendance is complimentary but advance registration is required. David Danto, IMCCA Director of Emerging Technology is the Event Chair. Dr. S. Ann Earon, President of Telemanagement Resources International and Chairman Emeritus of IMCCA is the Program Chair.  David said “it is an honor to conduct collaboration industry events that contain valuable, curated content that doesn’t waste the attendees’ time.  The IMCCA is proud to continue our tradition of events that cost the attendees nothing, keep the sponsorship fees to a fraction of the industry standard, and focus on meaningful, industry agnostic content – a win – win – win.”
