For End-Users

With 70% of attendees responsible for the strategy and management of data centers, end users benefit from key insights delivered by industry-leading peers on how to optimize internal and external IT resources.
In each market we create permanent Advisory Boards that help us curate content tailored to the needs of each local ecosystem.

For Vendors

At our conferences we encourage data center vendors to interact with end-users in a transparent environment. Our multi-track conferences are supported by unique expo areas where vendors can showcase infrastructure equipment, software and services.
Join DCN to reach new audiences, nurture the relationship with existing clients and convey thought leadership.

For Investors and Regulators

With 63.4 million square feet of data-center space globally, and another 4.3 million square feet under construction, we are just on the verge of a new ‘data tsunami’.
In such a scenario, objective information is vital for investors looking to diversify their asset portfolios and government agencies looking to regulate the various facets of the data center industry

“We strive to find out information needs of our markets and produce events of the highest integrity and value for all stakeholders”

As pioneers in the data center events industry and foreseeing a disruptive uptake of distributed data center services, we soon realised the need for a new platform.
A platform designed for emerging and high-growth markets as opposed to the increasing events regionalisation in our industry.
We are inspired by the belief that local infrastructure communities need to come together to face challenges and embrace possibilities posed by digital transformation.
Data Center Nation embodies this very spirit. A Nation built by data center operators for data center operators.
