Panel: Strategic investment opportunities - FLAP-D vs Tier 2 markets and beyond

As the traditional FLAP-D data center markets (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin) face capacity constraints due to limited power availability and land space, investors are increasingly turning their attention to Tier 2 markets like Madrid, Berlin, Warsaw, and Barcelona. These emerging markets offer growth opportunities driven by less regulatory friction and lower operational costs. How can investors capitalise on the shifting dynamics between established FLAP-D hubs and these rising Tier 2 locations?

This panel will analyse strategic investment opportunities in FLAP-D versus Tier 2 markets. Panellists will address how site acquisition and sustainability challenges are reshaping investment strategies and explore the increasing shift towards secondary markets, assessing risks and rewards. The discussion will equip attendees with actionable strategies to optimise investments in Europe’s evolving data center landscape.
