The enterprise “huddle room” is one of the hottest topics in AV and video conferencing today. It is also one of the most confusing and misunderstood for many people. Unlike a boardroom or training room which is well understood in the field, the huddle room concept means different things to different people:
--For customers, huddle rooms are a source of opportunity, but also stress and risk.
--For channel partners, huddle rooms are both an opportunity and a perceived problem.
--For vendors, huddle rooms are either the path to success or (it can sometimes seem) impending doom.

This session flies high above the bias and hype, providing real-world insight and information from the leading analyst focused on the video and AV meeting room market around the world. This hard-hitting session will provide participants with a better understanding of the huddle room trend, and how to make huddle rooms work for your company--whether you’re an enterprise, reseller, or vendor.
