The theme for this year’s event which attracts agents, VARs, and MSPs from across the country, is “Conquer UCaaS and SD-WAN.” During the three day conference attendees can expect to learn how to design complex UC, SD-WAN, and cloud solutions using Telarus’ unique set of provider selection and monitoring tools, hear from their peers who are finding success using the tools, and to meet with a wide variety of industry executives regarding their unique go-to-market plans.
”We are thrilled to hear from two CEO’s who have each led major transformations with their respective companies,” said Adam Edwards, CEO of Telarus. “As agents, we are all in the midst of making changes to our businesses to ensure we stay on top of the latest technology our customers are expecting us to know. I am honored to moderate the ‘CEO Transformation Playbook’ session with Mr. Masarek and Mr. Joos, and look forward to hearing the insights of two executives tasked with very difficult pivots, just as we are all tasked with the same thing today.”
