Initiating the Next Phase of Data Centre Development Across the Continent

This year, Datacloud Europe has expanded its service offering by co-locating the inaugural Invest in Data Centre Africa event at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco on 8 June, 2016.

The one-day summit is the first of its kind and will explore the next phase of data centre and public cloud development across the continent; current and future investment in Africa data centres, subsea cables, terrestrial fibre, cloud, IT investment and risk, the availability of funding and future  industry plans.

For investors, the summit will identify where the next hotspots are, how infrastructure opportunities – including fibre, network, cloud and data centres – will be valued and financed, the level of risk involved, and ask what currently prevents the hyperscales from building infrastructure in Africa.

“Africa is a growth story for the next decade,” commented Philip Low, Managing Director of BroadGroup.

“Attendees will be able to hear from industry leaders and companies pioneering the evolution of digital networks and critical facilities across the continent.

“No forum so far has focused on this tremendous opportunity to explain the much needed data centre investment opportunity, galvanise interest and significantly impact the development of digital technologies across the continent. We hope that the summit will better serve the unique needs of Africa’s developing and important market,” he added.

Datacloud Europe has emerged as the EMEA region’s largest gathering of the leadership of data centre and cloud. The premier forum will attract more than 1,800 executives from more than 60 countries as well as play host to more than 90 exhibiting companies; delivering the perfect platform to meet and discuss the latest developments in data centre and cloud, to ultimately secure real-time deals.

Sponsor and exhibitor opportunities are now open. Take early action to assure your participation in what will be the EMEA’s largest infrastructure and IT event, including the co-located Invest in Data Centre Africa.
