The timely forum showcases international networking and deal making opportunities with UK players, customers and influencers and also hosting the annual meeting of financiers and investors in the sector.

“Outsourcing to third party data centres remains a key strength of the UK market, which has been more recently driven by cloud providers. Together with its appeal as a global financial and international hub, it also has the advantage and market presence of LINX,” commented Gregory Gerot managing director of BroadGroup.

Datacloud offers a premium business forum in Europe, the Nordics, Asia and beyond and uniquely brings together infrastructure executives and attracts the leadership of data centre and cloud players, service providers, hosting, colocation and managed services companies.

For the first time, it provides a unique focus on the UK, the largest data centre market in Europe. The event will showcase facilities and services, power availability and growth forecasts and the coming impact of Edge.

The long running Finance and Investment Forum brings together stakeholders and players in finance and investment with cloud services, with carrier neutral and carrier owned facility owners, government and regional investment authorities, property interests, and law firms to assess the market outlook and identify key global opportunities, types of finance available, mergers and acquisitions, REITs and business models.
