Mar 23, 2010
SAN FRANCISCO, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Today UBM TechWeb announced that VoiceCon, the leading event in enterprise communications, will be re-named Enterprise Connect®, with the tagline "Communications Transforming Business." The name change officially goes into effect at the close of this week's VoiceCon Orlando 2010, and will affect the entire portfolio of VoiceCon branded events including VoiceCon eNews and the VoiceCon Webinar Series.
Going forward, Enterprise Connect will build on the legacy VoiceCon has built over two decades, and will continue to spotlight the technologies and market forces integral to the future of the industry: Unified Communications, IP Telephony and Converged Networks.
