The MEF18 Networking Hall is conveniently located one floor above the main conference sessions and will feature the following:

Proof of Concept Showcase: The Proof of Concept (PoC) Showcase will feature live service & technology demonstrations involving dozens of companies. The PoCs will provide you valuable insight into how agile, assured, and orchestrated services can be delivered across automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks. The Showcase will include two types of PoC demonstrations: those proposed specifically for MEF18 and, for the first time, demonstrations of MEF 3.0 Implementations that are in constant development by MEF members. 

MEF Presentation Theater: The Presentation Theatre will be centrally located inside the Networking Hall again this year. This is the location for announcements and our POC Award Winners on Wednesday afternoon!

Networking Booths: MEF18 Sponsors (bronze and above) are entitled to booth space inside the Networking Hall. The MEF18 Networking Hall diagram is posted below.  Booths shaded in grey have been reserved.  Booth locations are available on a first come, first served basis, based on sponsorship level.

New! Booth Crawl:  Let's Party! You won’t want to miss this first ever MEF18 Booth Crawl in the Networking Hall on Wednesday, October 31 from 5:30 to 7:30pm.  Mingle from booth to booth while enjoying custom libations provided by our MEF18 exhibitors. Costumes optional!
