The hybrid event for the multi-tenant data center ecosystem

How is the colo industry evolving to meet unrelenting capacity demands?


At DCD we empower the people who plan, build, operate and supply digital infrastructure to make better decisions in a fast moving and complex environment.

To do this, we collaborate with and connect the most important stakeholders in the global technology and services supply chain, curating and creating always-on content that really matters.

Our conference programmes are designed to explore key themes that impact the data center and cloud infrastructure industry and to provide our audience with vital knowledge and networking opportunities. To support this aim, in 2021, DCD>Virginia will run as a hybrid event.

What's a hybrid event?

Should the circumstances allow, we intend to run this event in person. Many industry stakeholders are eager to return to the traditional event format, however the ability to run events safely much depends on the roll out of a vaccination. Our approach in 2021 will be to retain the virtual conference elements that have proved so effective in delivering content to a wider audience, running either side of, and during a physical expo with special COVID-secure meeting spaces.

Registration for in-person tickets will open once we have more visibility, in the meantime, make sure you register for the virtual conference!
