MarketplaceLIVE East 2014

– Jessica Smith, Marketing Manager-Events with Telx, says:

The North America Data Center Key Trends Report 2013-2014 estimates that data center outsourcing and colocation investments currently total approximately $8.8 billion, an increase of 13% over the past year.  With growing capacity requirements and a rising need to access new technologies, this figure is forecasted to grow another 15% by the end of 2014.  As the data center and colo space continues its strong growth trajectory, the market will see a rapid accumulation of new players, challenges and requirements.  The secret to succeeding in this rapidly growing, ever-evolving industry lies in being a part of an extensive and equally advancing customer ecosystem and global marketplace.

Telx, a provider of global interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and data center solutions, provides this level of connectivity for its telecoms carrier, cloud and content provider, Internet Service Provider (ISP) and enterprise customers in several ways: physically, through its signature event series, MarketplaceLIVE, and virtually, via an interactive, web-based gateway called the MarketplacePORTAL.

Prominent industry thought leaders, c-level decision-makers, leading cloud computing providers, service providers, capital markets firms, large enterprises, media and entertainment companies, network strategists and media and industry analysts will converge at this year’s Telx MarketplaceLIVE East 2014 event, taking placeThursday, June 5 at the TimesCenter in New York City.  The one-day conference is focused on fostering professional relationships through collaboration as well as helping to shape business strategy and solve challenges via thought-leadership and industry insight.

Telx makes reaching new markets and revenue streams seamless by streamlining the collaboration process.  Attendees can use the MarketplacePORTAL to find and schedule face-to-face meetings with fellow Telx ecosystem participants prior to the event.  They can also leverage the platform to connect with fellow Telx customers throughout the entire year.  MarketplaceLIVE East 2014 will also feature engaging keynote presentations and executive panels for attendees looking to explore disruptive IT and telecom topics such as the future of innovation, next-gen communications, the cloud, digital media, gaming, healthcare and technology, and more.

Last year’s inaugural MarketplaceLIVE West Coast event in San Francisco attracted over 480 participants.  Attendees enjoyed dynamic keynotes by Kevin Slavin, Asst. Professor at MIT Media, and David Kidder, Co-founder of Bionic and Author of The Start-up Playbook, as well as educational panels featuring industry thought leaders from Netflix, MIT Media Lab, Cisco, NTT, TW Telecom, Lopez Research, Vodafone, and more.
