INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, held since 1999, is the world’s largest and best-attended VoIP trade show.  Last October, TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO in Los Angeles attracted over 7,000 buyers and sellers of IP Telephony products and services.  For this upcoming January show, TMC projects total attendance to exceed 8,500.
Mr. Hoffman boasts more than 30 years of telecom and broadband experience in the wireless, cable, local and long-distance sectors. Since joining Covad in 2001, Mr. Hoffman has successfully transformed Covad into a leading nationwide provider of broadband voice and data communications. Prior to joining Covad, Mr. Hoffman was President and Chief Executive Officer of Rogers AT&T, Canada's largest, national wireless service provider. Under his leadership, the company grew from fourth to first place in a market of four national wireless providers.
“The incredible flexibility of VoIP will dramtically change the industry, as companies like Covad bundle broadband, voice and targeted applications that will make traditional phone service seem as dated as the telegraph,” said Hoffman.
