What is Telecom Exchange?

The Telecom Exchange is a true networking event designed to navigate telecom network buyers through the many colocation and connectivity options in and around the US, as well as international subsea access. Our core event philosophy is simple: to connect networks with the people behind these networks while maintaining a true, neutral playing field where all can meet, be inspired and conduct business.

"Telecom Exchange (TEX) provides an efficient way for FirstLight to reconnect with its carrier customers and vendors. The timing and location of the event is very convenient and the “carrier neutral” format puts FirstLight on equal footing with its competitors."

− Maura Mahoney, Senior Director of Marketing and Product Management at FirstLight Fiber

"Thank you for always hosting a wonderful event. I always make valuable connections with other members of the IT community and enjoy the different exciting venues. I particularly enjoy the networking with the diverse mix of professionals in this fun and relaxed atmosphere."

− Victor W. Cardona, Strategic Network Consultant at Comcast Business

"We had an amazing time at this year’s TEX; between the panel discussion, networking and a steady stream of interviews, this one-day event proved to be a great success. Relevant, frank, informative, and productive, TEX is unlike any other show we have attended."

− Roy Hirst, Director of Marketing at XKL

"Telecom Exchange exceeded our expectations regarding the number of quality companies represented and the opportunity to network with these firms in both social settings and one-on-one meetings."

− Greg Byrne, VP of Business Development at LightRiver Technologies, Inc.
