IX Reach – ‘PoP’ing up at Capacity Europe

capacity-europe-2015-SLast week the IX Reach team headed out to Paris, France for the annual Capacity Europe event. This year's event took place at the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel and was held over the course of three days, 2nd-4th November, with the Global Carrier Awards being held on the Tuesday night. The three day event started with the opening Keynote panel on the topic of 'The Ongoing Pursuit of the Perfect Partnership - Opportunities for OTTs and Content Providers to Work with Carriers in Network and Customer Enhancement' - this was followed by further panels and speeches throughout the event. Throughout the three day event the IX Reach team were also sponsoring the popcorn stand, located in the main hall alongside all of the exhibitors at the event - allowing attendees the choice of free bags of sweet, salted or toffee popcorn.

In the daytime, the IX Reach team members were busy moving from meeting to meeting, and in the evenings they were all attending networking events and socials creating a very busy schedule for all attendees.

On the Tuesday night the team attended the Global Carrier Awards, an annual awards ceremony to reward industry companies for their achievements throughout the last year (Click here to see a full list of the award winners on the night).

IX Reach attended the event to show support to our customers and partners within the industry. The event was followed by an after party, held at Salons Vianey in Paris.
