2018 ITSPA Awards revamped to celebrate tenth anniversary

ITSPA, the UK body representing the next generations communications industry, has today launched its tenth annual awards ceremony, sponsored by Magrathea. To mark the tenth ITSPA Awards, a complete refresh of the categories has taken place, representing the evolution of the industry and the new, innovative services provided.

The Awards remain free to enter for all representatives of the VoIP industry, including non-ITSPA members and the ceremony will take place at The Barbican Botanical Gardens in London on Thursday 24th May 2018.

The revamp will enable us to recognise the best performers from across the industry better than ever before. I look forward to a great event and what will no doubt be another highly competitive nomination process.”
