PHONE+ sends out emphatic congratulations to all the winners! (And be sure to check out the October issue of PHONE+ for the Boston show winners!)

PAETEC’s Chris Bantoft accepts the award for Best Trade Show Booth at the Vegas show. The exhibitor’s new design featured a classy wood-paneled look and open, inviting space for attendees to interact.









TelePacific Communications’ brought home two awards. Here, Dick Jalkut and Justin Chris-Tensen accept the awards for Best After-Hours Party and Best Trade Show Giveaway. The company received the award for Best After-Hours Party for its evening of cocktails and appetizers at the Voodoo Lounge atop the Rio Hotel and Casino. TelePacific won the award for Best Trade Show Giveaway with its battery-powered fan that lit up to reveal the company’s name.









Cliff Stalker and others in the One Communications crew accept the award for Best Promotion in Vegas last spring. The company’s Porsche roll had attendees taking a gamble on a new car by rolling seven die to see if they could spell out “Porsche” to win the hot rod.
