I really enjoy the fact-based atmosphere that is in CONNECTIONS™ - you guys do a lot of research and you often have very strong participants. Your analysts are always very good on the work of developing good Q&A. Overall, a very good experience.

Again CONNECTIONS™ was very useful to network and get a sense of the questions asked and the first successful answers from the industry. We are always willing to share our experience. I hope to come again next year.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback on the CONNECTIONS™ conference.

1. The Conference: Though I was only able to attend 2 breakout sessions (Remote Service Providers and 3D) and visit the trade show floor, I thought it was well done. The speakers were articulate, engaging and had insights to share that you wouldn't otherwise hear unless you attended.

2. Speaking: I enjoyed the opportunity to speak and was heartened to see that 150 of the conference participants attended.

3. Verizon-sponsored cocktail party: Two-words: Nacho Bar! Seriously, it was a well-attended and festive environment with quality appetizers and adult beverages.

Frank J. Mona III, Executive Director- Sales Execution, Consumer Home Services-ConnecTech, AT&T Operations, Inc.


I wanted to send a note of thanks on behalf of ExtendMedia for involving Extend in last week’s CONNECTIONS™ panel – TV Everywhere and Online Video. It sounds like the discussion was lively and well-received, and I know Todd appreciated the opportunity to be a part of it!

I wanted to thank you once again for helping to coordinate the VIP Dinner last week and extending the invitation to Roger and I. We had a lovely dinner and were able to not only hear from industry players through the panel session but also made meaningful “connections” with those seated at our table. The entire week was unforgettable.

Just wanted to say thank you for a great conference. I feel like I learned a great deal and spoke to some interesting folks. I enjoyed the panel on Thursday. As I said, I'm very impressed with the research work that you are doing. Tuesday's pre-session was very educational for me.
