Citrix Education hosted the annual EMEA Citrix Certified Instructor (CCI) Congress in Madrid, Spain from July 8th-11th. The event enables CCIs from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa to join their peers to learn about new Citrix products, increase their expertise with existing products, and to network with their peers.
