19 Feb 18

The end of January saw the launch of the inaugural Datacloud UK event, collocated with the annual Finance and Investment Forum which is in its 11th consecutive year.

Held at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square in London, the events showcased the UK data centre and cloud sector to hundreds of interested parties.

The two events held from January 31 to February 1 brought together enterprise customers and investors with the leading data centre & cloud players and experts in the industry.

“In creating a programme with a unique focus on the UK, the largest data centre market in Europe, we had in mind the competitor markets vying for post-Brexit opportunities, innovation in services and growth forecast,” says BroadGroup chairman Phillip Low.
