MyBroadband Conference sets new standard

The 2008 MyBroadband Conference attracted a record number of delegates. The 2008 MyBroadband Conference took place at Vodaworld recently, and featured a line-up which can be described as a who's-who in the local broadband and telecoms market.
Vodacom was the main sponsor of the event with Axxess, Vox Telecom, Poynting Direct, ECN Telecoms, Panda Software and Miro Distribution also supporting the event.

Now in its fourth year the MyBroadband Conference has grown to become the premier broadband and telecoms event in South Africa, attracting in excess of 350 delegates and industry professionals. Apart from information sharing it provides an excellent networking opportunity for IT professionals.

The conference kicked off with Vodacom CEO Pieter Uys and Vodacom Business Executive Wally Beelders. This was followed by Telkom's Mike Vos, MTN's Brian Seligmann and a panel discussion chaired by IT journalist Duncan McLeod. The panel discussion featured Vox Telecom CEO Doug Reed, Neology Director Roelf Diedericks, Ellipsis Regulatory Affairs Director Dominic Cull and iBurst's Steve Briggs.

After lunch delegates had the opportunity to hear from SEACOM President Brian Herlihy, Neotel CTO Dr Angus Hay, Dark Fibre Africa Director Richard Came and Multichoice executive Richard Fyffe.

The major sponsors have already confirmed their willingness to get involved with the 2009 event which promises to be bigger and better than this year's conference.

The presentations and audio recordings can be downloaded from MyBroadband.
