April 12, 2010 | Howard Lichtman

Reston_Fountain_lr.jpgASHBURN, VIRGINIA - April 12th, 2010- The Inter-Company Telepresence and Videoconferencing Conference and Working Group, which will be held on April 22nd in Reston, Virginia, has announced a formal working group on inter-company technical and operational issues for telepresence and videoconferencing managed service providers and carriers.

The conference, while primarily focused on organizations looking to improve the ROI and utility of their investments in telepresence and visual collaboration through effectively connecting with partners, vendors, and customers, has drawn great interest from the leading visual communications Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and telecommunications carriers that support these organizations.  

Howard S. Lichtman, President of the Human Productivity Lab and Publisher of Telepresence Options, which is organizing the conference explains the Working Group: "Many of the industry's leading MSPs, Carriers, and Inter-Connection providers are sending high-level technologists and product management specialists to the conference including a number of Chief Technology Officers.  We wanted to create a highly productive and inter-active forum where these industry leaders can have an open dialogue and technical discussions on the best ways to facilitate secure, inter-company visual collaboration sessions for their customers."

The session will be chaired by Aaron Roe, who manages telepresence and videoconferencing at Deloitte and has previously designed and managed telepresence and videoconferencing network operations for a number of leading telepresence and videoconferencing MSPs.  The working group will take place from 3:30-5:30 PM EST at the Sheraton Reston on April 22nd after the main plenary session of the conference.  

Telepresence and videoconferencing MSPs, telecommunications providers, and inter-networking specialists that are attending the conference include: BCS Global, CFN Services, Glowpoint, Iformata Communications, IPeak Networks, IVCi, MASERGY Communications, and Telx among others.  

The conference also announced that the pre-conference dinner on April 21st will be open to members of the telepresence industry trade association: Telepresence Industry Professionals.  The dinner will be held at Clyde's in Reston Town Center from 7:00 - 9:00PM.
