LuxConnect Dinner and presentations to 60 guests from across the data centre sector by Luxembourg for Finance at historic Trinity House in London March 2018

“The presentations were informative, and I was interested to note that LuxConnect is now positioned as a wholesaler and that you in your role of Director Global Alliances have identified and engaged with 4 very good companies to handle the retail operations.

All-in-all it was an ideal location and your organisational skills created an excellent event, that was just reward for your efforts.”
