Speakers Announced for Telepresence World 2008 London: March 18th-19th, ExCel London

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

Martyn Lewis, CBE (Chairman of Teliris and former TV presenter and news anchor), Charles Stucki (Manager of Cisco Telepresence Systems Business Unit), Jonathan Shopley (Executive Director of The CarbonNeutral Company), and Marc Trachtenberg (CEO of Teliris) are featured speakers among notables to address delegates

London, UK: Tuesday 22nd January, 2008 – Hemisphere Expo Services, producers of the Telepresence World Conference Series (www.telepresenceworld.com), announced today the featured speakers and panellists who will address attendees of Telepresence World 2008 London, which will take place on 18th – 19th March at ExCel London, the internationally acclaimed exhibition and conference centre located in the UK’s capital city.

The conference, which will showcase the latest state-of-the-art systems designed to enable and enhance collaboration and reduce the need for in-person meetings, will focus on real-world applications of telepresence and will feature case studies, roundtables, and business analyses led by industry leaders. Speakers will explore a wide variety of topics ranging from management of the global enterprise via telepresence to ways that the technology can reduce the corporate carbon footprint and contribute to the development of sustainable business models.

Marc Trachtenberg, who is a Co-Founder of Teliris as well as its CEO, will lead off the Conference on March 18 with a powerful and highly interactive look at the multi-faceted ways that telepresence will continue to change business practises around the world.

According to Mr. Trachtenberg, “It is hard to believe that it was slightly less than a decade ago that Teliris introduced the first telepresence system. In that short time, companies of all sizes, all over the world have realized the tremendous value of this unique technology and its implications for managing rising costs, fostering deeper, more effective communication and decision making and even addressing corporate environmental responsibility. And this is just the beginning — telepresence will eventually become an irreplaceable asset within each and every organization that needs to meet in a natural, immersive way across distance.

According to Ken Crangle, vice president, Diamond Sponsor HP Halo Telepresence Solutions, “As global enterprise becomes more distributed and complex, more effective ways to collaborate and communicate are key to increasing business productivity, furthering collaboration and reducing corporate travel expenses. HP Halo Telepresence Solutions are already used by some of the world’s leading companies such as ABN Amro, AMD, BHP Billiton, DreamWorks Animation and PepsiCo to foster more personal connections while reducing the burden of travel and to make business decisions faster and with greater control. We are looking forward to showcasing the benefits of this powerful technology at Telepresence World 2008.”

Featured Presenters at the conference will include:

Martyn Lewis, CBE, Chairman & Co-Founder Teliris
Marc Trachtenberg, CEO & Co-Founder – Teliris
Charles Stucki, VP & General Manager – Cisco Telepresence Systems Business Unit
Jonathan Shopley, Executive Director – The CarbonNeutral Company
Aaron McCormack, CEO – BT Conferencing
Peter Lloyd, Editor-in-Chief – AV Magazine

Jonathan Shopley, Executive Director of The CarbonNeutral Company, said: Technological solutions are vital for a low carbon future. Our experience shows us that business travel accounts for around 20% – 30% of our service-based clients overall emissions. Where possible, using virtual options like telepresence is a real opportunity for businesses to cut emissions at the source whilst increasing cost and staff efficiency.

Martyn Lewis, CBE, Chairman of Teliris and lauded TV presenter and news anchor, also presenting at the Conference, stated: This is such an exciting time for the telepresence industry as more and more companies around the world begin to understand how drastically its deployment can redefine business as they know it.

Attendees of Telepresence World 2008 London will have a unique opportunity to experience telepresence offerings from a number of vendors first-hand via demonstrations and exhibitions. The venue for the conference, the ExCel London Exhibition and Conference Centre, is conveniently located near the London City Airport and Canary Wharf.

New Venue and Dates Announced for Telepresence World 2008 London

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Teliris, Cisco, and Hewlett-Packard join as Diamond Sponsors with many more to follow

Steamboat Springs, CO (November 26, 2007) Telepresence World Conference Organizer Hemisphere Expo Services, Inc, has announced plans for the next Telepresence World Conference event that will showcase the latest high-tech alternatives to traveling for face-to-face meetings. Telepresence World 2008 London (http://www.telepresenceworld.com) will take place March 18 -19, 2008, at the internationally acclaimed ExCel London Exhibition and Conference Centre in the UK’s capital city.

“You have to experience it to believe it is often heard when describing telepresence. Telepresence meetings make remote participants life-size, with fluid motion, accurate flesh-tones, eye-to-eye contact, and flawless audio. The experience feels remarkably natural and comfortable for almost any size meeting from two people to large classrooms.

According to Mark Barounos, President of Hemisphere Expo Services, the use of telepresence technology for business applications “has increased dramatically� since the inaugural Telepresence World Conference was held in San Diego, CA, in June of 2007.
“Telepresence vendors such as Cisco and Teliris are reporting mounting numbers of customers world-wide. John Chambers recently said that installations of Cisco’s virtual meeting solution grew by over 400% in the last business quarter alone. This overwhelming acceptance of telepresence as a practical option to in-person conferencing has definitely pushed the technology from emerging to mainstream.

Due to the increasing recognition that telepresence can enable collaboration while reducing the carbon footprint and costs associated with corporate travel, Barounos expects turnout for the London event to be in excess of over 700 delegates. To allow greater participation in UK, the venue for Telepresence World 2008 London was recently moved to the spectacular ExCel London Exhibition and Conference Centre located near the London City Airport and Canary Wharf. The stunning waterfront setting includes a variety of hotels, restaurants, and pubs and is adjacent to the Royal Victoria Dock, which was originally established by Prince Albert in 1855. Since opening in 2000, ExCeL London has hosted more than 1,700 events. Notes Barounos, “the expanded facilities and centralized location of the ExCel will greatly enhance the conference experience for attendees, speakers, and exhibitors alike, and it will allow us to present some very exciting sessions involving high-profile participants.

Telepresence World 2008 London will encompass two days of plenary sessions, panel discussions, case studies, roundtables, exhibits, and telepresence demonstrations focusing on real-world applications of telepresence. Frost & Sullivan, a world renowned corporate analyst firm, has partnered with Telepresence World to provide market leadership, perspective, and insight. The Organizers are also collaborating with the UK-based Carbon Neutral Company (TCNC) to make the conference a carbon-neutral event–carbon emissions created locally by the meeting will be measured and offset, resulting in a net zero carbon footprint. Delegates traveling to the conference by air will be encouraged to offset the carbon emissions generated from their journey via participation in a variety of international carbon mitigation programs.

Global Telecom leaders Teliris–recent winner of the Frost & Sullivan 2007 Market Leadership Award in the Telepresence Industry; Cisco—the premiere provider of cutting edge technologies designed to transform how people connect, communicate, and collaborate; and Hewlett-Packardwho recently teamed up with TANDBERG to provide a solution that links their Halo Collaboration Studio to other standards-based videoconferencing systems have signed on as Diamond Sponsors for the conference. As such, they will play integral roles in supporting the event and shaping the future role of telepresence in business, academic, and research endeavors.

Network sponsorship for Telepresence World 2008 London will be provided by Masergy Communications. Organizational supporters include the Interactive Media & Collaborative Communications Alliance (IMCCA) and the International Society of Presence Research (ISPR).
