Park Plaza Westminster

The Ultimate Partner Discovery Experience for Buyers & Specifiers

With more and more information exchanged online, we believe in-person content and networking should be experiential, memorable and based upon individuals meeting individuals.

DCD>Connect | London returns to the Park Plaza Westminster this October, bringing together 700 top executives from Europe's data center design and construction supply chain, for 2 days of debates, workshops, panels, interviews, demos and 1-2-1 introductions to support technology discovery and day-to-day best-practice.

In addition to our industry-leading content, we’ve also added a host of new networking and relationship building opportunities, so that you can connect with the industry's tech innovators in a 5-star setting, (think networking cafes, open bars and wine-tasting experiences) to reinforce your existing relationships and build new ones.

  • The pressure we're under to build faster and bigger means my team is always on the lookout for new technology and partners to get us there. For the last year we’ve had to rely heavily on pre-lockdown relationships. We’re coming to diversify our partner ecosystem & strengthen existing relationships, because truthfully, only so much can be done on Zoom.

    Mark Flanagan, Group Managing Director, Kirby Group Engineering
  • We're constantly churning through white papers. Listening to webinars. Looking for case studies on how new technologies are being applied in data centers. But we need to meet vendors face-to-face because we've always got more questions. And it’s not just about understanding the nuances of the tech. It’s about building the trust too.
