Hear from your peers, and join the conversation on the biggest technology, management, and organizational challenges to success in enterprise videoconferencing and A/V.

The world of video communications is experiencing major upheaval: New players are competing for your business; pricing models are in transition; end user demands are advancing rapidly; and your IT and A/V teams are needing to work more closely together than ever before. How do you grapple with all of this change? A panel of your peers at end user organizations will discuss what they’re doing: What’s working and what’s not, what’s most urgent, where costs are trending, and much more. This session will emphasize not just discussion among the panel members, but interaction with the audience as well. So bring your questions and concerns. You’ll come away with a better perspective on how to attack the biggest challenges you face in your video and A/V environment
