I am looking forward to meeting with our EMEAR service provider partners at this year’s Connections event in Miami, Florida. Our BroadSoft and Cisco executive leadership team will share our business strategy, vision and product roadmaps. Plus, we’ve designed our session topics to answer your questions about our portfolio and what’s in store.
It was only one year ago that Michael Tessler announced the acquisition of BroadSoft by Cisco at the opening of Connections 2017. This year, we have even more exciting news to share about our plans to enhance our portfolio and the new opportunities available to our service provider partners from the combined BroadSoft and Cisco family.
Connections this year is the largest attendance from EMEAR ever, with our registrations up by 70% on any previous year. It is obvious that the market is embracing the opportunity that Cisco | BroadSoft brings, and the Connections theme of "Experience What's Next" is key to our service provider partners taking advantage of the opportunity ahead.
Connections is now the must attend event for EMEAR service providers as they define their unified communications and collaboration strategy, along with sharing best practices with service providers from around the globe.
This year, we will continue to showcase and highlight our commitment to openness and are pleased to welcome back all our ecosystem partners, a key component in service providers enabling innovative and differentiated solutions. We are pleased to share our continued journey into and with Cisco.
This year’s Connections event will take place on November 12-15 at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Miami. I look forward to seeing you there. If you're not able to join us in Miami, register to watch the General Session live streams on November 13 and 14.
