What Do Our Attendees Think?

Joe Scattereggia
Windstream Wholesale

The big thing about Metro Connect is that it enables us as a team to get together and collaborate with customers in a great environment. We get our product people, our sales people, and our customers together in one place. We can do a lot of meetings throughout the three days here. Being part of this conference early on in the year enables Windstream Wholesale to excel throughout the year.


Shawn O'Donnell
Senior Managing Director
FTI Delta

Metro Connect really helps progress relationships and deals in two different ways. One is that we all schedule our meetings and we get to talk through in more detail the various arrangements or deals that we're working on. Second, you bump into so many people just walking around the venue that you don't have the opportunity to schedule a call or a meeting with them, so it's a great opportunity to pop in and reconnect with people and re-engage.

David Kamphuis
Director, Carrier Sales

Metro Connect USA helps me progress deals and partnerships by giving me a quality meeting space, and the opportunity to see so many people in the industry in one spot. It's a place where deals are made and partnerships are formed. Outside of the quality meetings we have, there are the social functions after the daily meetings, being able to relax in an informal environment with all of my colleagues and just spending time together and building partnerships.
