Join us in New York City on September 25 for AVI-SPL’s Collaboration Expo 2012. The conference will feature over 25 manufacturers showcasing the latest business communication solutions that help organizations reduce costs and speed up time to market through video conferencing, unified communications and digital media systems.

Each full-day conference is your opportunity to learn about the latest collaboration technologies, helping you make informed decisions on communication investments for your company. Select manufacturers will also deliver educational seminars on topics like the future of conferencing and managing the video enterprise.

In addition to these sessions, Andrew W. Davis, cofounder of Wainhouse Research, will deliver the Expo’s keynote speech, “Beyond ROI: Find Real Value in Collaboration.” Davis will discuss how today’s work environment is changing rapidly with the evolution and adoption of telepresence, unified communications, mobility, videoconferencing, and life in the cloud. He’ll share his insight on how IT professionals, line managers, and senior executives can find an effective return on their investments.
