This article is about the trade fair. For the systems engineering term, see interoperability.

Interop is an annual trade fair for information technology organised by UBM. It takes place at four different locations at various times of the year: Mumbai (India), New York (NY, USA), Tokyo(Japan), and Las Vegas (NV, USA). 2011 marked Interop's 25th anniversary and throughout that time, Interop has promoted interoperability and openness, beginning with IP networks and continuing in today's emerging cloud computing era. For every US event, Interop volunteers build a network (called the InteropNet) using tools from various vendors to demonstrate the latest technologies and interoperability.
