TREX Regional Exchanges Oy has been hosting the TREX Workshops every year since 2009. Recently other Nordic Internet exchange points have started to be interested in the seminar, so in 2019 we've decided to rename the event as the network operators' group meeting of Finland.

Time and Place

This year's seminar will be held on Friday the 17th of May 2019 at Villa Härmälänranta in Tampere, Finland. The seminar will start at 12:00 and end at around 18:00 with a dinner and a networking event with a traditional Finnish sauna that will be warm until the wee hours of the morning.

We've collected some information about flights and accommodation for the benefit of international attendees.
