A full week has passed since InfoComm, and that week has given me time to get back to normal work hours - and plenty of time for some reflection. InfoComm is one of the biggest and most important trade events of the year for our industry.
As I sit here and reflect I am going to take a bit of a different path than I think you (or even I) would have expected prior to writing this post. I keep coming back to one underlying theme on this show: partners.
Don’t get me wrong. The Pexip new brand launch was incredible [our marketing team is second to none!]. But more importantly, the customers and prospects that came by our booth, spent some time with us at one of our events, or simply stopped and said hi while we were wandering around the halls, were all top notch. And I want to personally thank each and every one of you.
But the partners.
Their energy. Their engagement. Their feedback. Their commitment. Wow! I was blown away. We had a packed house for our annual partner breakfast with executives, sales, and technical representatives from over 30 of our partners from around the world. We hosted tours in our booth with groups of over 20 representatives from some of our key partners around the US. We engaged in countless joint customer briefings to showcase our new brand, product offerings, organizational development and strengthening, and discussed updates to the new Pexip service and the Infinity software. We toasted to successes and reviewed the learnings from our mistakes.
So, to our partners, thank you! We had a great time with you at Infocomm. And we look forward to working with you over the next days, weeks, months, and years to continue changing the video conferencing and collaboration industry.
Cheers to you!
