GDA Net[t]work Lunch
Business is created by people
For 18 years, business people have been meeting in Switzerland for the "Carriers Lunch" and experiencing a casual, open togetherness: old acquaintances meet, interesting discussions arise and new business partners are found. At the end of November 2018, GERMAN DATACENTER ASSOCIATION made a fantastic start to the series in Frankfurt - with interesting and lively discussions.
Since then, on the last Friday of the month about 30 people are meeting for the GDA Ne[t]twork Lunch and are spending an enriching, extended lunch break in a pleasant atmosphere.
