InteropNext Conference Date: October 1-October 5, New Yorkhttp://www.interop.com/With a 25 year history in the U.S., Interop may well be the oldest IT conference on this list. The name should give you a hint of the theme: network interoperability. At each Interop event--and there are two in the U.S. each year--the show’s planners create a network that takes advantage of current and next-gen technology standards from exhibitors and vendors that demonstrates, well, interoperability. According to a 2011 post-show survey, 95% of Interop attendees are active in the purchase process for IT at their companies.
