This invitation-only event (open to media) will be held on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan will attend the event, and speak at 5:40 PM, which will precede the ribbon cutting ceremony.

The FirstLight team invites regional business professionals to attend and learn more about the advantages of leveraging FirstLight’s data center to support their business applications. Attendees will enjoy a tour of the facility, meet the talented FirstLight team, learn about FirstLight’s latest developments and have the opportunity to network with industry professionals and stakeholders in the greater Manchester region.

“We are looking forward to seeing our customers and prospects join us for our event, and are especially honored to have Governor Hassan attend and speak,” stated Patrick Coughlin, SVP of Sales and Marketing for FirstLight. “We hope to showcase our Manchester data center in a way that highlights all FirstLight colocation facilities, which feature the capabilities business customers require, including scalable space, power and cooling, and access to a high capacity, fiber-based communications infrastructure.
