19 Winter 2019 RURAL TELECOM
[R]E CONNECT With Solution Providers
The future is tomorrow, but the challenge is
today. Challenge your board to advance their
telecom knowledge. Challenge your key
employees to understand culture shifts that will
move your business forward. Challenge your
executive team to take employee transitions to
the next level.
EXPO at RTIME is the place for networking, face-to-face conversations with solution providers and more.
It’s the pulse of the conference—where vendors showcase their best and latest solutions.
With 150 exhibitors, the EXPO is the largest that
caters to the needs of rural broadband service providers.
RTIME vendors are well-versed in the challenges that
rural providers have, and they understand the unique sit-
uations of their communities. EXPO Plus provides an
opportunity for clients to set aside time with vendors and
share the needs of their own communities.
New additions at this year’s EXPO include:
l Extended show hours to allow more vendor-customer
l EXPO Live, offering educational programming live on the
l EXPO Forum, which gives you the opportunity to experience
product demos during EXPO hours.
RTIME takes place in New Orleans, a city that has rightfully
earned more nicknames—NOLA, Crescent City, N’Awlins, Big
Easy, Paris of the South, Birthplace of Jazz—than, arguably,
any other city. The music, food, culture and history add
excitement to conference events. Milestone celebrations
with the Foundation for Rural Service (p. 22) and NTCA
Rural Broadband PAC (p. 24) are among several notable
events to attend.
The beignets, Creole and Cajun cookin’ and jazz are all
waiting for the [R]EVOLUTION to begin.
