To our valued members:
2016 has, without a doubt, been a year of change for QuEST Forum. While remaining focused on quality and standards in ICT, we have extended ourselves in a number of new directions as we strive towards our 2020 Vision Plan.
One such area of focus has been collaboration with other industry associations. We have dedicated a great deal of time and effort to evaluating the benefits of working with other organizations to maximize the value we deliver to our members. Out of such evaluation came collaboration in a number of forms; eLearning, industry relevant content, co-promotion, joint events and conferences. The first of which is TIA’s Network of the Future conference being held 6-9 June in Dallas, Texas.
While this is, in fact, an Americas-based event and QuEST Forum is collaborating with TIA for this conference, I want to clarify any misconception that we are replacing a QuEST Forum hosted conference. Collaborating with these organizations is not about replacing the QuEST Forum events our regional leadership works so hard to host year after year. It is about providing more to you, our valued members; more events, more content and more networking opportunities.
With that, I’d like to cordially invite you all to the QuEST Forum Service Providers Summit hosted by the Americas Region, being held 13-14 September in Nashville, Tennessee. Work Group Meetings will follow on 15-16 September 2016. Although the name has changed, I assure you, the quality of the event has not! You will still receive the world-class content, delivered by highly respected industry professionals from leading companies in ICT that you are accustomed to. There will still be best practice sharing and networking with executives from across the industry. And the week will still wrap-up with our workgroup meetings, where the leaders of QuEST Forum join to plan, strategize and collaborate on the various elements that make this organization great!
See you all in Nashville!
Fraser Pajak, CEO
