TCS Summit 2017 Notice

After careful consideration regarding the situation in Florida, we have decided to cancel the 2017 TCS Summit in Fort Lauderdale. Our intent was to explore how we could possibly bring business immediately back to the area, but with millions of residents and businesses in Florida without power and facing several challenges to recover from the hurricane, we felt it was prudent to call off the event. Any room reservations booked on your behalf through TCS have been cancelled.

We still plan to support the local communities and economy to get back on its feet by donating $500,000 to the Red Cross in Florida.

Please contact me directly or e-mail TCSNASummit@tcs.com if you have any questions or concerns.

Warm regards,

Surya Kant
