ITEXPO 2017 Attracts nearly 7,000 Attendees from Across the Communications Industry


Leading communications and business transformation event ends a week of informative programming, powerful keynotes and hours of networking with industry leaders.

Trumbull, CT – February 23, 2017 – TMC announced that ITEXPO, held February 8-10, 2017 at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, concluded with a robust three days of educational programming, hands on training, live demos, keynotes, exhibits and networking events.  ITEXPO proved once again to be the leading communications and business transformation event where influential buyers gather to make their purchase decisions.

Since its launch 18 years ago, ITEXPO continues to be the one event where telecom and IT professionals, C-levels and business owners, developers, and the Channel all gather to learn in conference sessions and conduct business on the show floor. It is the annual meeting point where buyers of communications hardware and services can sit face-to-face with hundreds of manufacturers and solutions providers in one place, for three incredibly productive days.

“As the communications industry continues to grow, ITEXPO has evolved to become so much more than just another tradeshow. The 2017 Fort Lauderdale event once again proved to be the best resource for training, knowledge, networking and selecting solutions,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman. “The positive feedback and buzz surrounding this event has been overwhelming and we can’t wait to see how ITEXPO expands over the next year.”
