10 Years of VIX

It was a marvellous event!

On 23 November 2006, about 300 guests celebrated with us the 10th anniversary of  the Vienna Internet eXchange in the magnificent ambience of the former Vienna Stock Exchange building (Börsensäle Wien).

Addresses to the audience were given by Georg Chytil (ISPA), Peter Rastl (University of Vienna / VIX), Job Witteman (AMS-IX) and Serge Radovcic (Euro-IX).

An excellent and versatile buffet service was provided by M*eventcatering, whereby the chocolate fountain is particularly worth mentioning. A choice of red wine of PinBologna was completing the culinary delight.

Erwin Loskott on the piano, Gigga Neunteufel as special guest "Bertha Zuckerkandl", and Nina Reisinger and Ute Weiß with a fascinating light show were additionally helping us to get into a good mood.

All this excellence has been "powered by" our generous sponsors Foundry Networks, Siemens Austria and Interxion Austria. Apart from Apple iPods provided by Foundry, and Siemens IP phones, our tombola was complementary feeded with prize items by Telekom Austria and eTel. The first prize, a travel voucher for a London weekend, was donated by Silver Server.

The most beautiful photos of the evening can be found in our photo gallery - thanks to Peter Wienerroither for taking pictures! Photos in high-resolution quality are available from Peter on request.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this great event - in particular our partners and sponsors:
