The Broadband Expo, November 1-3, 2010 - Dallas, TX

Buyers and Sellers together ... one place to get business done.
The Broadband Expo provides a "go-to" source to network and discover business opportunities as technology is extended to rural America. The importance of this vast market is reflected in the $7.2 billion in stimulus funding announced by the Obama administration. Get one-on-one with the decision makers involved in the broadband deployment to rural areas of the United States.
The Broadband Expo provides a specific emphasis on rural America. In 2010, universal broadband has never been more important. The show will provide focused in-depth educational sessions, certification training as well as showcase an exhibit hall of products and services for those who want to learn about new technologies and systems to cost-effectively deliver broadband services to areas that are still not served or those that are under-served.

WISPA - Summer 2010 Regional Meeting

Marriott Renaissance Hotel - St. Louis, MO Airport
9801 Natural Bridge Road
St. Louis, MO 63134

Streakwave Booth #B2

Per Member requests, WISPA is proud to hold it's first WISPA Regional Meeting in St. Louis, Mo on July 21st and 22nd.  We are currently planning three tracks, packed with information on regulatory issues, operations, marketing and other challenges the WISP industry faces on a day to day basis.

We invite all WISPs and wireless integrators to attend this meeting.  Come meet the current WISPA Board and hopefully many of the new Board members who will be running for next years Board.  There will be a breakfast Board Meeting on the second day, so you will be able to see the Board in action and participate in the discussion.

We have received great response from vendors and the Exhibition Hall is sold out.  Many vendors are participating on panels and vendor presentations about new products and services.  We also want to recognize the Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsors below.  They are covering the majority of the catering costs for this event.  Make sure and thank them for their participation.

We have secured FCC OET Chief Julius Knapp, Peter Stanforth of Spectrum Bridge, Steve Coran of Rini Coran PC and Mike Cassity from HiBeam Internet and Voice as Keynote speakers.

Another big event during this conference will be the WISP Roundtable.  This will be an opportunity to discuss the challenges of everyday operations of a typical WISP business with your peers.  It may be the most worthwhile event of the conference.

Our Industry is dynamic and in a current state of flux.  WISPA is involved heavily in the TV Whitespaces, 3.65 GHz rule making, TDWR Database work, National Broadband Plan and Stimulus Funding.  Schedule your participation for this meeting today, so you can stay up to date with current WISPA efforts.  We will insure that this will be a great event and well worth your time and money to attend.
