The Connect Experience
Creating a New Event Experience
This is one of the most anticipated events on the East Coast data center calendar and also one of the longest running shows. Over the last 22 years we have had to reinvent our event format to make sure it is delivering attendees what they need in one of the world's fastest paced industry sectors.
If you register to attend, you can expect a 'high density' experience where you will be exposed to new ideas, new technologies and make meaningful new contacts.
Check out our video to get an idea of the new DCD>Connect experience.
