NEW YORK -- Telx, the leader in providing interconnectivity solutions through network-neutral, network rich, colocation facilities announced today that their annual Customer Business Exchange the "Telx CBX" will be held in New York City June 5, 2008 from 9am to 3pm at The Brooklyn Bridge Marriott Hotel. The CBX is the industry's premier networking event focused on generating business opportunities and closing deals that facilitate interconnects between global networks within Telx facilities. This year's event coincides with the North American Network Operator's Group (NANOG), which for the first time will hold their meeting in New York and is also being hosted by Telx.

The CBX attracts hundreds of leading global networking and IT visionaries who are Telx customers, prospects or technology partners. Over 1,000 attendees registered for the 2007 CBX and with the addition of hundreds of global network architects and network design professionals attending from NANOG, Telx expects the CBX to be even larger than past years. In addition, it is anticipated that attendees of the annual Global Telecommunications Meeting (GTM) and the newly formed International Telecom Week (ITW) held in Washington D.C., will be extend their trip to attend the CBX. The Brooklyn Bridge Marriott Hotel is offering discount hotel rates to attendees.

"Each year the CBX event grows, not only larger but more focused and targeted toward companies we can actually do business with" commented Erick Contag, Director of US and International Marketing and Sales at Brasil Telecom GlobeNet. "Each year attending the CBX offers GlobeNet the opportunity to meet with relevant network operators, which directly and indirectly correlates into new business opportunities," added Contag.

The CBX is designed around an open exhibition floor where only networks or technology partners that are physically located in Telx facilities are invited to exhibit. This ensures that any deal done with a network-based exhibitor at the CBX can be implemented immediately in a Telx facility without incurring additional local loop charges and dramatically reducing time to revenue. CBX attendees appreciate this inherent benefit of attending, which is aided by the ability to schedule meetings with other confirmed attendees prior to the event through the Telx designed and branded One-O-One online meeting system. During the event there is a separate, managed area designated for these pre-arranged meetings, which Telx representatives facilitate by keeping track of scheduled appointments.

The CBX also features a Press Room, where select exhibitors are invited to announce significant business developments before an audience of targeted reporters and media professionals. The 2007 media announcements featured major news affecting the global telecommunications industry by 4Connections, DataNet, Deutsche Telekom, Globenet/Brasil Telecom, Hibernia Atlantic, iNETWORKS Group, IPsmarx, ISID & HKCOLO, Luna, Mzima Networks, Tiscali International, VoIP Logic, and Stealth Communications. Press and Media attendees included Virgo Publishing, IP Business Magazine and Internet Telephony Magazine.

"The CBX event is among the best in the industry for meeting and networking with industry execs," says Bob Titsch, publisher and editorial director of IP Business magazine. "It seems to double in size every year. Last year in just one day we met 80 or 90 new contacts and we were introduced to a number of new companies and products through the CBX Press Room. That's why we make it a priority to attend and sponsor the event every year. It's not to be missed."

Telx has already begun to sign-up sponsors and Press Room participants for the event on June 5, 2008. For more information on how you can participate or attend the CBX, please contact Jennifer Sauer at [email protected].
