ITSPA has an active events programme with members enjoying a mixture of regular workshops, dinners and receptions. These enable attendees to network, listen to industry analysis and discuss hot topics. ITSPA’s events over the years have attracted a range of high profile speakers and attendees including political, regulatory and industry figures .

The highlight of our events programme is the annual ITSPA Awards, which recognise the best performers within the next generation communications industry, and we encourage all members to get involved in both the Awards, and the wider events programme as a range of speaking and sponsorship opportunities are available.

ITSPA Teams Workshop

15th May, 2pm-5.30pm

Regus - London, Devonshire Square

9 Devonshire Square



Over the years Microsoft have been making strides to extend their Office suite to encompass voice (OCS, Skype for Business etc). They have to some extent been regarded with a degree of suspicion by the telco community who believed they were out to eat their lunch.

With Teams and Direct Connect it would appear that Microsoft are opening up their environment to SIP trunk suppliers and have a number of certified SBC vendors that should make this easy to do.

This workshop has been put together to examine whether Microsoft should be seen as a threat or an opportunity by the ITSPA community. We have a number of stakeholders coming along to provide what should be an informative / educational afternoon. Our objective is that you will go away with a better idea of what Microsoft are up to and be able to decide whether there is a play for your own company.
