The inaugural CPaaS Acceleration Summit, CASA 23, will take place in Amsterdam on September 18-20.
Set up by the CPaaS Acceleration Alliance (CPaaSAA), the event connects CPaaS vendors with Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and aims to turn a “cool idea” into a “game-changing reality”.
The three-day event will host 49 speakers, 250 attendees, 63 members, and eight workshops, focusing on the latest trends within CPaaS and its adjacent markets, including CCaaS, UCaaS, AI, and others.
Rob Kurver, Founding Partner of the CPaaS Acceleration Alliance, commented on the event launch: “We are thrilled to host the first dedicated CPaaS event.
“CASA23 aims to not only spotlight the rapid advancements in the industry but also provide a platform for collaboration, discussion, and innovation.
Attendees will walk away inspired and equipped to drive further growth as the CPaaS industry races to $100B in 2030.
CASA23 represents not only the first event in the series, but CPaaSAA is heralding it as the “first-ever dedicated event for the CPaaS industry”.

CPaaS Acceleration Alliance
The CPaaS Acceleration Alliance describes itself as a “global Alliance for the CPaaS industry”, which helps to accelerate the growth and adoption of communications platforms.
There are three main elements to the CPaaSAA’s work, which are its research and education “academy”, “alliance” efforts to bring CSPs, CPaaS platforms, and industry experts together, and its “advisory” network strategy, technology, and marketing advisors.
The organization unites the CPaaS platform and service providers, enablers, technology vendors, sales partners, advisory partners, industry experts, and media to build mutually beneficial strategies, partnerships, and practices.
According to CPaaSAA, it is relationships such as these that are transforming CPaaS from a $16 billion industry in 2022 to a $100 billion industry by 2030.
