The DE-CIX Summit Madrid 2017 took place on 23 November in the Spanish capital at Torre de Cristal.
For centuries, Madrid has been one of the leading capitals of the global economy.
Just one year into business, and with more than 80 networks connected, DE-CIX has been supporting the growth of interconnection ecosystems in Madrid, making the Spanish capital the fastest growing Internet Exchange worldwide and its metro area the No. 1 interconnection hub in the South of Europe.
Such a dynamic context raises the question of what the digital horizon on the Iberian Peninsula looks like. The DE-CIX Summit Madrid will bring together the interconnection business, the Internet industry, and public institutions to provide answers to this question.
Under the banner: De Madrid al cielo... ¡De Internet! - Madrid - The sky's the limit
Over the course of a one-day conference, industry experts and business decision makers discussed about the status, trends, opportunities, and challenges that will shape the digital landscape of the Iberian Peninsula - today and in the future.
The summit was held in both English and Spanish; simultaneous translation were provided.
