The Enterprise Connect experience provided numerous high-level discussions with industry experts from mainstream UCC AV industry companies, however it also provided insights from companies that may not be considered as mainstream however I certainly consider them as beneficial for the overall AV community to look into. Watch for my extended interviews with several company executives at the show as well. All in all a tremendous experience, one I hope to repeat at Enterprise Connect 2016.
