The growing use of cloud technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) have been among the most impactful trends throughout 2017. In fact, Forbes predicts that the cloud computing market will more than double from $67 billion in 2015 to $162 billion in 2020. Meanwhile, the number of connected IoT devices continues to soar, expected by Gartner to top 8.4 billion by the end of the year. In order to enable these technologies, data center owners and operators around the world are working overtime to ensure their facilities are able to provide enterprises with reliable infrastructure and low-latency connectivity when and where it’s needed.

To ensure data center professionals remain on the cutting edge of these industry trends and innovative technologies, CapRate Events, LLC (CAPRE) will be hosting the Greater Denver Data Center Summit on Thursday, August 17, at the Denver Art Museum. As part of the National Data Center Summit series, this event brings together data center developers, investors, end users and public-sector executives for a full day of education and networking opportunities.

Featuring speakers from organizations including Etix Everywhere, CBRE, DuPont Fabros Technology and 451 Research, the summit’s agenda will explore a wide range of topics relevant to the data center industry, including mergers and acquisitions, facility site selection, cost-effective operational strategies and colocation marketing best practices.

The Greater Denver Data Center Summit will also feature an exclusive exhibition hall designed to provide attendees with the opportunity to learn more about the latest technologies and solutions available throughout the colocation industry. In addition, immediately following the final panel session, event participants will be invited to attend a post-event networking reception sponsored by ViaWest.

Said Jim Kerrigan of North American Data Centers, regarding previous CAPRE events, “I have attended CAPRE Data Center Events in New York, Santa Clara, and Chicago and have found the panels and participants to have unique ideas and perspectives. I’ve always enjoyed the conferences and the attendees that I meet there.”
