DataCentres North secures its place as the largest event outside London

We were delighted to have attended DataCentres North 2018 which took place at Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire County Cricket Ground. Located in Manchester, DataCentres North meets the needs of the large and growing number of businesses and decision makers responsible for commissioning, designing, maintaining and operating data centres.

The event, which took place across two full days, provided a great opportunity to talk to industry experts, network and share ideas with the business community and listen to key insights from thought leaders and service providers.

Datacentreplus Managing Director, Mashukul Hoque, participated in a panel discussion on the subject of ‘Driving Northern Data Centre Development’. The panel discussion covered a variety of topics which included: northern data centre development, investment, power, connectivity, digital infrastructure, employment creation and Brexit.

Mashukul Hoque, Managing Director of Datacentreplus commenting on the event:

“For us this was a great opportunity to engage directly with the data centre sector and technology industry in the North. It was fantastic to share thoughts and ideas with other data centre businesses and the Manchester data centre community and we look forward to collectively raising the profile of the Manchester technology sector.”

Hugh Robinson, Managing Director of StepEx said:

“DataCentres North again delivered over 500 attendees over the course of the two days, making this the largest data centre infrastructure event outside the capital. Exhibitors stated that DataCentres North is a unique opportunity to meet a different audience of attendee, in a professional environment and time to really engage with delegates and discuss their needs.

Delegates were really impressed with the level and breadth of content delivered, many stating that the programme could stand up against any other Data Centre event held anywhere in the world”.

Next year’s DataCentres North will take place on the 30 April – 1 May 2019, again at Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire County Cricket Club. Those wishing to exhibit should contact the organisers Stepex Ltd +44 (0) 1892 518877 or email datacentres@stepex.com to reserve their stand.

Datacentreplus would like to thank DataCentres North for organising a great event and we look forward to such future events.
