Another exciting and successful ITW is complete!

From the 10th-13th May the city of Chicago once again played host to the International Telecoms Week (ITW). This year saw the biggest IX Reach team yet with Stephen Wilcox, Ruth Plater, John Hill, Ben Nicklin, Louis Richards, Dominika Samborska and Nicole White all in attendance. For many it was the first time they had attended ITW and proved educational and a great introduction to the telecommunications industry.

The smoothie stand was a great hit, taking place from 9am-11am everyday - just what people needed after a night full of socials! The coffee stand was located on the gold level and was in action the entire week - this proved a great hit with the ITW attendees - often resulting in a large queue of people waiting to get their caffeine hit.
