- March 2014San Francisco, March 2014
SMO sales team made a successful visit to OFC in San Francisco. This is the fourth year that the company has attended and there was not much time to enjoy the warm Californian sunshine. Although there seemed to be less traffic than in previous years, the audience was much more focussed. A number of interesting new contacts dropped in for discussions as well as familiar faces catching up on existing projects.
