The Carriers Ball is an annual gala presented by Chorus Communications as 'An Evening Created to Celebrate the Top Carriers in the Biz'. The Ball is hosted in a different city every year and consists of two parts: an exclusive reception for agents and solutions providers, and an awards ceremony that acclaims the top cloud services and telecommunications carriers and vendors in the industry. Winners included QTS Data Centers, Google, Tierpoint, Telesystems, Comcast Business and Level 3.

This year's Carriers Ball, highlighted by a showstopping performance by country music star Jamie Lynn Spears, drew hundreds of telecom and cloud partners together for a night of networking and rockin' out! As a Platinum Sponsor, OnSIP was handing out "UnRisky Business" sunglasses at this noteworthy event.

"One word: B U F F Y! True to form, Buffy Harakidas, Director of Marketing for Chorus and Metrospect Events, was coordinator and hostess extraordinaire, throwing yet another over-the-top celebration," says Helene Kidary, VP Channel Sales. "Chorus never neglects one single detail when celebrating its Suppliers and Partners, which makes working with them such an honor. I can speak for my teammates when I say, we all left at the end of the evening with sore cheekbones from smiling all night long!"

The night was a resounding success, full of music and mingling deep in the heart of Texas. Congrats to all of the winners of The 2017 Carriers Ball. We're looking forward to next year's event- it's going to be another amazing event!
