VoiceCon 2010

Kissimmee, Fl, Monday, March 22, 2010: I was at VoiceCon this week at the Gaylord Palms Hotel near Orlando.
Not a bad place to spend a week, eh? (Eh is Canadian for “huh?”) We like to invite customers to comfortable places. (this is not my photo, but the rest are mine)

The hotel has two enormous atriums. “Outdoor seating” under glass. There’s even a sailboat under glass. Perfect weather demands perfect gardens. Their gardening maintenance budget must be astronomical.

They even have a fort that was set up for yet another party that I wasn’t invited to. Sure have been many of those. Oh well. ;-)

I like the geometry of the draped tables scattered over the compass.

From this indoor paradise, the steps led to the convention center and our reason for being there.

As you can see, the Cisco banners were up-to-date.

Our banners were everywhere.

The booth itself was impressive. Too large to fit into a single photo. Here, the booth team was hard at work. And it is hard standing for 5 or 6 hours at a time. Cheryl, the lady in the foreground, looked great in high heels but told me she paid for it afterwards. Reminds me of the old line about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, "Ginger did everything Fred did, but backwards and in heels!"

Adam set up all of the demos and phones, with Kirk, who is responsible for all of our outbound messaging for phones. That’s a poster behind Adam and Kirk.

Right photo: What a pleasure it is to show these phones off in public.

The booth was a big hit and Kirk and I were kept continuously busy with account teams, customers, partners and analysts coming around to ask about the phones. Congratulations to everyone who contributed to make this a good job well done.
