Data Center Investment Conference & Expo, West

Join us for our second annual Data Center Investment Conference & Expo (DICE), Westdiscussing the Northern California data center market, and focusing on Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. 

As Northern California is the second largest data center market in the U.S. and home to 120 data centers and 355 service providers, much opportunity remains in the Bay Area given its standing as the tech nexus of the country.

However, expensive costs for power and real estate continue to provide a steep barrier to entry in the region.

As a whole, last year alone, $20B was invested in North American data centers

Private capital and institutional investors entering the space are becoming savvier in their investments - as established players continue to capitalize and expand.

With the industry continuing to move at a breakneck pace to match the increasing demand from users and industries across the country, 2018 is looking to be another record-setting year. 

Topics To Include:

1. What major sectors will continue to drive demand in the Bay Area? 

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

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

4. 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.
