In 2014, OpenDaylight launched it’s first annual Summit designed to provide a collaboration and education space for innovators, developers and users in the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) space.  The first OpenDaylight Summit was a success, selling out and with standing room only for many of the keynotes.

Sponsors were featured prominently in show marketing including newsletters, social media, press releases, blogs, live video streams, the OpenDaylight website and through a media partnership with SDNCentral. Dedicated outreach to reporters and analysts resulted in great coverage for sponsors, members and the project.
