    Lee Dryburg, Organizer

    in Technology

    The Emerging Communications (eComm) conference was founded in 2007 by Lee S Dryburgh, a telecommunications engineer and a communications visionary. eComm emerged from several alignments of opportunity and inspiration. In late 2007, Dryburgh—severly frustrated by the stale and often out of date content he found in existing telecom industry conferences and gatherings—decided to gather an ahead-of-the-curve forum of friends to break the impasse and create an event for the new post-telecom era. Calling upon the success of an earlier conference developed by Surj Patel that also reached out to telecom innovators (but narrowed towards telephony), Dryburgh saw an opportunity to spark a visible, lasting, and open conversation to track and promote the post-telecom era which the market stepped into late 2007. 2009 promises to be a gathering of thought leaders who wish to share and develop their ahead-of-the curve ideas, vision and products. With players at all levels already vivying for speaking slots, Dryburgh anticipates a content-packed 3-day event that is truly at the forefront of innovation and defining the new telecom era.
