ecoMeetup, Amsterdam 25th July 2012

European ecoMeetup, Amsterdam – Shaping your Network

SoftLayer Sponsor Logo

Did you know that 40% of eco's members come from outside Germany? We have nearly 600 members at eco from all over the world.

Schleifenbauer SponsorThat’s why we’ve decided to start hosting some networking events in and around Germany to help all members of our community meetup, swap business cards and make new connections.

The first EU ecoMeetup networking event will be held 25th July in Amsterdam, hosted by SoftLayer and sponsored by Schleifenbauer Products bv.

Networking MembersThe events will be held at either a member-sponsored venue around Europe, or at the new state-of-the-art DE-CIX Conference Centre at our offices in Frankfurt. The first event in Amsterdam will be an interesting event for companies in Hosting, Data Centers, Cloud Computing, and Telecoms.

Food and CanapesAs the focus is on networking, we won't pre-occupy attendees with lengthy, time-consuming presentations. Instead there will be some short introductions and a couple of interesting agenda items depending on the venue, theme and new ideas from the community. The rest of the time is yours to network over drinks and nibbles!

Jonathan Wisler, General Manager EMEA for SoftLayer at their Amsterdam DCBefore each event we'll send out a list of attendees so you can check out who's going. We’ll also invite you to submit a logo, five key words for what your company does and the name of your representative, to display at the event. We’ll even help with follow-ups after the events via a special LinkedIn Subgroup.
