New York Interconnection Summit 
DE-CIX 10th Anniversary Celebration

Join us!

Let’s celebrate the past decade of growth, partnership, and collaboration within the New York community at the New York Interconnection Summit powered by DE-CIX. Engage in learning, collaboration, and networking opportunities with telecom industry executives, alongside enterprise leaders from finance, manufacturing, and the media.

DE-CIX has partnered with numerous industry champions to conduct a study on the growth and changes in the interconnection and data center markets in New York and across other metro markets over the past decade, with a focus on the development and impact of the distributed, data center and carrier neutral model of Internet Exchanges.

Get exclusive access to the initial findings at the conference, with the complete study available to all attendees upon publication.

As dusk falls, the festivities continue with a special toast commemorating 10 Years of DE-CIX New York. Join us atop the Knickerbocker, overlooking the iconic Times Square, as we raise our martini glasses in celebration of the city's past, present, and future.
