You're Invited: WebRTC Conference and Expo to be Held in Atlanta


Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) is a technology that allows people to communicate, in real-time, between browsers that doesn’t require a plug-in. It’s still a work in progress, but is already making an impact on the technology industry and is set to be a major game-changer in how we communicate over the Internet.

Firefox, Microsoft, Ericsson, Vidtel and AT&T are just a few examples of companies that are already working on WebRTC initiatives. There is a lot to consider when it comes to WebRTC – from business impacts, economic impacts, standards, tools and education, there is a lot to learn to make the most of this innovative technology.

TMC, Systemwide Media and PKE Consulting will be hosting the WebRTC Conference and Expo on June 25 – 27, 2013 at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference is an opportunity for companies, Web application providers, investors and developers to understand what WebRTC can offer and how it will challenge and change much of today’s communications landscape.

Applications developers in product companies, enterprises seeking to use WebRTC to create new capabilities or enhance existing offers and anyone involved with B2B, B2C, contact centers, unified communications, social or other Web apps needing to understand how WebRTC applications will transform their businesses should all attend this conference.

“By presenting a ubiquitous endpoint accessible to nearly everyone, anywhere, WebRTC will evolve the communications landscape,” said Erik Linask, group editorial director, TMC. “The concept resembles the definition of unified communications first presented by Microsoft when it announced OCS, so WebRTC may, in fact, become the ultimate UC endpoint. What will be truly exciting is watching innovative use cases for WebRTC develop in various vertical markets.”

In addition to presentations, demonstrations, panel discussions and workshops, the conference hosts special events, including the Best WebRTC Development Award and the Developer Bake-Off, a competition to develop an app in time.

“After the great success of the San Francisco event in November, we are looking forward to a great event in Atlanta,” said event producer Phil Edholm of PKE Consulting in a statement. “With May availability of WebRTC in both Chrome and Firefox, the Atlanta conference will showcase the first production applications of what may become the break-out technology of 2013.”

A registration pass includes admission to all conference and keynote sessions, food and drink during all meals and breaks, and access to conference networking events. June will be here before you know it; register for the WebRTC Conference and Expo today!
