Our commitment to your safety

We have been inspired by the industry’s enthusiasm as we return to live events and have been thrilled to safely host more than 4,000 executives this summer. As we continue to overcome and emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, we know the best way through the latest developments and to keep the industry thriving is by working together. As such, we are updating our event safety guidelines & protocols as follows:

 

  • In accordance with CDC guidelines, we are recommending that all participants wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be made available at the door.
  • Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.
  • Attendance at the event will be capped and no tickets will be sold at the door. 
  • Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.
  • Socially distanced seating will be available in the main event space.

  • How is increased competition for infrastructure and resources - power, water, and fiber - driving innovation for greater efficiency? What lessons does data center alley hold for operators nationwide amidst a growing focus on sustainability across the industry?
  • How does growing density for proximity between assets - and increased rack density - driving innovation in data center design/build and footprint?
  • How has the shift in access to facilities furthered the development of AI and remote hand capabilities?
