08 Mar 18

​BroadGroup and CNet have officially announced a new partnership.

CNet will become the official Global Education Partner for BroadGroups Datacloud event series that spans around the world.

The goal of the partnership is to collaborate in uniting industry leaders and influencers to effectively raise awareness of the importance of confidence and competence within the digital infrastructure industry – including how it can play a critical role in making  a positive impact within the data centre sector.

Currently CNet provides data centre and network infrastructure education across the globe, with the range of education programs forming the Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework from a level 3 up to the world’s only Master’s Degree in Data Centre Leadership and Management.

“I am delighted that CNet is the official Global Education Partner with BroadGroup.  I personally look forward to attending their high profile and well respected Dataloud events across the world, and working together to unite industry leaders and influencers to discuss the important issues that surround us all,” says CNet president and CEO Andrew Stevens.

BroadGroup has grown to be a big player in the data centre industry after successfully building and hosting several events aimed at professionals within the data centre, IT infrastructure and cloud industry.

Its Datacloud events bring together professionals from across the industry, allowing for networking, learning and attending insightful presentations and participation in panel sessions.

“This is exciting news for both BroadGroup and CNet. We believe working together will strengthen the message of the importance of education in the sector and I’m excited to see CNet at the Datacloud events in the coming year,” says BroadGroup chairman Philip Low.

CNet will be present at all of the Datacloud events, including the next event, Datacloud Asia in Singapore on 22 March and the popular Datacloud Europe and Datacloud Awards held in Monaco every June, where CNet will be speaking on Day 1 (13 June). Other Datacloud events this year will be held throughout Europe, Asia and in Africa.
