The IP Sizzles show, an ABP (News - Alert) resellers' roadshow, is currently underway. This year, IP Sizzles officials say, they're using the model of a multi-country roadshow.
"For the first time ABP will host a combined US tour and an international IP Sizzles," company officials say, adding that the ABP team and sponsors will cover eight major U.S. cities and also travel to Central and South America.
The tour kicked off in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic earlier this month for the international leg of the tour, and touched down in Los Angeles on May 18th to start the American tour.
As a value added distributor specializing in IP technology, IP Sizzler officials say the show's mission is "to help you generate more profitable revenues and enable you to get the most out of what IP technology has to offer." They say they found that the best way to help resellers "was to bring tested and complete packages for you to see and expose your team to at the event the Sizzle."
Patton (News - Alert) Electronics is taking its products on the road for this ABP's seventh annual IP Sizzles Conference. Patton officials note that central themes of the conference include unified communications, IP surveillance, and IP video applications for SMB.
"Patton will be showcasing its SIP trunking [product] that support enterprise-class IP Telephony," said Sean Gerrity, Patton's regional director for North America and Japan.
IP Sizzles 2010 is designed around an intense full day program designed, company officials say, to "enlighten and inspire and help you grow your IP technology business in 2010."
Their agenda is fast paced, they say, and "includes high-level industry information for IP Surveillance, IP Telephony and IP Video with presentations, panel discussions and exhibits plus an optional workshop on the second day with practical hands-on training."
If you've attended past "Sizzles" events you'll remember the working demos and social time during meals with your peers, our vendors and the ABP team. All that's still available.
