Sponsors & Partners

Top towercos endorse the TowerXchange Meetup Americas 2017! SBA Communications, Torrecom and Innovattel/Torresec sponsor the 2017 edition of the one and only meeting place for the CALA telecom tower industry.

Held annually in Q2 in Boca Raton, the TowerXchange Meetup Americas is the one and only gathering of tower leaders from across Central and South America. Over 85% of all top leaders from the telecom tower industry join us annually to discuss key trends, forward-thinking strategies and find solutions to common operational challenges.

Leading buyers use the two days of the TowerXchange Meetup to meet with the teams providing the solutions they need and save weeks of searching, assessing and meeting each one individually. And of course the solution providers participating in the TowerXchange Meetup are many times more likely to receive RFPs from those buyers.

If you would like to get involved in the 2017 Meetup, contact TowerXchange’s Chief Commercial Officer, Annabelle Mayhew to discuss how all available packages and to receive a tailored proposal: [email protected]
