Park Plaza Westminster

Celebrating the year's best projects & teams at the "Oscars of the data center industry"

The 15th annual DCD>Awards took place on 8 December 2021 at the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge. Nearly 700 people enjoyed the Covid-safe event, with thousands more joining the celebrations virtually by watching our ceremony live stream.

Throughout the gala dinner & ceremony, 14 different people, projects, and teams were crowned winners across our iconic categories. Winning in these categories was no small feat, as we received a record-breaking number of entries this year from 35 different countries and 6 different continents!
