CWNP Conference

Overview of Conference:


It has been 15 years since CWNP's inception and we believe it is just as important to learn from the past as it is to innovate for the future.

Join us for our 1st annual CWNP conference. The purpose of the conference is to provide educational and networking opportunities to IT professionals with a focus on the Wi-Fi arena.

This is designed to address the real-world opportunities and challenges faced by today's IT professionals, by facilitating face-to-face interactions and networking among information technology experts. At least six of the largest Wi-Fi manufactures will be present to answer your questions.

We selected a small venue to ensure that your questions will be answered. Click here to learn more about the conference location.

The conference will include a brief history of Wi-Fi so we can better predict where it is headed. You will also get exposure to deep dives in vertical markets including healthcare, education and high-density deployments. And we limited the agenda to a single track so you won’t miss anything. This means you can send one representative and they can share all the information with your staff.
