DCD>Leadership Summit (November 7)

Inform your decision making at the DCD>Leadership Summit

Why Attend?


As the data center industry stands at the forefront of digital transformation, the DCD>Leadership Summit is the essential gathering for C-suite executives from colocation & cloud operators who are charged with driving the industry forwards.

This exclusive meeting encourages growth, innovation, and strategic leadership through a platform where industry leaders address key issues and share actionable insights.

The Format Explained

The agenda topics (seen below) will be moderated by a subject-matter expert, who will guide the discussion in the room amongst all Leadership Summit delegates. This is not a traditional speaker-led panel; instead, all Leadership Summit delegates will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and collaborate with their executive peers in this small-group, interactive setting.

Participants will also enjoy access to a post-event golf tournament on the morning of Friday, November 8, at the world-renowned Greg Norman Golf Course, allowing for informal interactions away from the office environment.

Confidentiality & Open Collaboration

Held under the Chatham House Rule, this closed-door summit ensures confidential boardroom discussions, focused on honing business strategy, and enhancing organizational impact and efficiency. Only C-suite executives (or equivalent decision-makers) from colocation & cloud operators are eligible to attend.

This gives you the opportunity to honestly discuss the current data center landscape with your peers, and deepen your understanding of future challenges and opportunities to ensure your business is at the forefront of industry evolution.

Key Takeaways

  • Strategic Insight: Gain a comprehensive understanding of the data center industry's trends and challenges through open discussions under the Chatham House Rule, enabling effective future planning and innovation.
  • Invaluable Networking: Connect with industry leaders to form strategic partnerships and collaborations, leveraging these relationships to enhance your organization's impact and growth.
  • Practical Solutions: Leave with actionable strategies and insights to tackle current challenges and improve efficiency, driving immediate and impactful changes within your organization.
