8:30 AM - 9:45 AM OpenXchange: Coffee & Conversation

Join us for coffee and conversation at the OpenXchange. This forum is where we talk about the newest-of-the-new: emerging technologies and services—and the changing competitive landscape that will influence the direction of our industry. It might be mobile, it might be integrated ecosystems, it might be a recent entrant—or it might be something entirely new that emerges between today and June 24. The only thing for certain is a lively panel discussion on what’s likely to happen and how it’s going to impact our businesses and industry.
