Event Information

Focusing on the critical business issues that C-level executives at data center, colocation and Cloud service providers must face, the revamped agenda addresses four key themes: Optimizing Business Models & Strategies for Growth, Expanding to New Service Offerings, Cost Reduction & Mitigation Strategies, and Cost-Effective Infrastructure Investment & Future-Proofing.

Back in Silicon Valley for a sixth consecutive year, last year's event brought over 35 CEOs and Presidents of data center firms who spoke on the panels while 300 senior executives including some of the most prominent data center owners, tenants, investors, capital and service providers participated in the forum.
