Preview IWCE 2014 with the Virtual Tradeshow December 5, 2013

The IWCE Virtual Show is a free-to-attend, in-depth day of learning, discussion, networking and exhibitions for communications technology professionals and key vendors to ask and answer today’s most pressing and business critical questions.

Just like a live event, the Virtual Show will feature an exhibit hall where attendees can visit and interact with knowledgeable vendors; an auditorium where they can view webcasts, presentations and live Q&A sessions; a resource center to browse white papers, presentations, videos and podcasts; and the app center where they can interact and connect directly with app sponsors.

Registered attendees can access 5 live Webcasts throughout the day and scheduled chats immediately following each webcast. The event will be live for one-day and then available on-demand through iwceexpo.com and urgentcomm.com for the four months leading up to IWCE’s live event. View the agenda and sponsors below for more information.
