About This Conference

News Alert: DCD Colo+Cloud has moved to a 'free-to-attend by invitation' 
attendance model for qualifed end-users... Find out more here!

DCD Colo + Cloud will bring together senior business, operations and technology professionals from the world’s major colocation, cloud, telecoms and other data center and managed service providers to discuss the future of this rapidly growing data center sector. IoT, Smart Cities, Big Data and Clouds are driving the industry forward whilst IaaS in all its forms is providing end-user organizations with even more ways to purchase and provision new infrastructure capacity. The conversation at Colo+Cloud will focus on how data center services companies must evolve to be customer-centric and technology relevant.

Launched in 2015 in Chicago off the back off the hugely successful DatacenterDynamics global series of conferences, this year DCD Colo+Cloud has moved to Dallas, one of the USAs most important interconnect and data center hubs.

With a full day of pre-conference activities followed by a full day conference and exhibition the event will include 40+ hours of expert panels, keynote presentations, interactive workshops and roundtables, not to mention an expo showcasing the latest technologies. In less than 24 hours you will network, learn and share your way to a more decisive 2017.

THE BIG DISCUSSIONS OF 2016

To help kick-start the process of change we have published a 20-page guide of what we will think will be the big discussions in 2016.

These discussions will be lived out at DatacenterDynamics events around the world. Your industry needs you to participate and to share; be at the table not on the menu.

WHAT OUR DELEGATES SAY

"Fabulous opening keynote speaker, his message on what it takes to be a market leader was clear and concise. And the presentation, along with the facts and figures, on business opportunities in China was a real eye opener."

"There was so much good content offered, that it was difficult to get to all of the sessions that I wanted to attend, and spend enough time to learn about new products, applications, or technologies that the exhibitors had."
