Why This Matters

What You’ll Learn:

With the pandemic’s increased reliance on working remotely, the requirement for copious amounts of storage and processing power has upturned exponentially, positioning data centers to be one of the trendiest and fastest-growing developments in commercial real estate. Climate change, wellness, seismic considerations, power sources, cooling capabilities, and access to resources like water and talent pools are just a few of the challenges developers face.

 

  • How might a data center’s location produce unique competitive advantages and disadvantages?
  • How will risks such as climate, accessibility, seismic activity, and nearby talent pools affect investment considerations?
  • How are Cloud and Connectivity driving demand for Hyperscale Data Centers?
  • What strategies can be developed to validate reliability and uptime?

 

Who You'll Meet: Investors, end-users, developers, architects, brokers, tenants, and engineers.
