Data Center Investment Conference & Expo, Northwest

Join us for our first annual Data Center Investment Conference & Expo (DICE)in the beautiful city of Seattle.

Dubbed "Cloud City" due to the presence of tech firms such as Microsoft and Amazon and the transformational cloud technology the firms bring, Seattle earns its spot as one of the top 20 in the world, for reasons including:

     * Cloud infrastructure investment by tech giants

     * Low-Cost power

     * High-Performance connectivity

     * Cool, rainy weather eliminating most cooling costs

(source: datacenterHawk)

With over $45B invested in the sector over the past five years, private capital and institutional investors entering the space are becoming savvier in their investments - as established players continue to capitalize and expand.

Topics To Include: 

1. Will the presence of aerospace, financial, healthcare, tech, and transportation industries continue to drive Seattle's data center demand? 

2. What does a cooling off in leasing mean for the sector?

3. How will the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing impact data center demand? 

4. What major M&A activity do players see on the horizon?

5. How are data center strategies changing as end-user demand begins to shift? Will the blurring of business models - from wholesale data centers to retail colo continue? 

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from & network with the leading owners, developers, investors, end users, and major players in the data center space.
