What Guests Had to Say

“As Director of Content and Data Centers for Uniti Fiber, attendance at the DE-CIX holiday event was a great opportunity to meet new contacts and reconnect with others as the new year approaches. Many companies are currently budgeting for 2017 and some people have taken on new roles with new companies. DE-CIX did a tremendous job of bringing in a wide range people from New York City to Frankfurt, Germany, with a great blend of both customers and prospects. A big thank you to Ed D'Agostino, VP, North America, DE-CIX for the invite. Hope to see everyone at PTC in January or other future events.”

- Dave Tomassoni, Director, Content and Data Centers - Uniti Fiber
