The event was very good, congratulations to you and all participants!

Thank you for the support during the event, everything was perfect!
—Claudia M. O. Ferreira, Account Manager at Telebras
First of all, congratulations for the event. I saw your dedication (you and your team) and I think it was a very different and amazing event. The format of the event is approved. We had a very productive 2 days.
—Alessandra Rodrigues, Country Manager at iBasis, a KPN Company
I’d like to say that my past participation in the GCCM was fruitful, I met with many participants and I did see great value in this event format. The format was just great, because mega events such as the Futurecom are simply too spread in giant exhibition centers with all kinds of companies you’re not really interested about and you just end up walking and walking most of the time (and sweating, it’s Rio!), so a great hotel lobby with most relevant players’ desks properly identified with large characters and the main sponsors on bigger desks conveyed a sense of practicality to the event, like an Italian family gathering. And since everybody is there, you end up passing by people you did not officially arrange a meeting with, but you end up inviting for “a chat in my desk in a few minutes” and by the end of the day you addressed your topics with everybody and what would normally take you a month worth of labor time to do, you get done in a pair of days and eventually meet others you didn’t know because they are there too, opening up more connection doors. I myself spent 100% of my time doing business.
—Daniel Gewehr, Backbone Capacity Manager at AT&T
Thank you for everything. GCCM has an special touch in doing business! Congrats! It was an amazing event.
