“With the efficient running of data centers so important to the very survival of many industries – health care, government, law enforcement, education, research, manufacturing, and more – this is a critical time for the community to be getting together safely and virtually to continue the narrative and learn best practices from each other for navigating new territory,” said Brian Gillooly, Content Director, Data Center World.
A Virtual ‘All Access’ pass includes online access to all conference sessions, keynotes, workshops, Expo Hall and sponsored sessions, and networking opportunities. It also includes on-demand access to all conference and keynote sessions for 3 months after the event, access to Omdia researchers, and exclusive market research.
Using artificial intelligence (AI) to help ensure more valuable connections, attendees would have ample opportunity to network with peers and create lasting connections. Throughout the event, there will be social video and entertainment breaks involving games, giveaways and prizes. There will also be video discussion groups and happy hours based on industry or topic area, speaker meet and greets, a Women in Data Centers Meetup and a chance to meet with Omdia analysts.
The virtual Expo Hall will feature the industry’s leading vendors showcasing hundreds of innovative products and services. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the latest technology and identify the best solution to improve their data center management strategy. The virtual experience would allow for “seamless” communication with exhibitors including live interactions and forums for discussion, ensuring that attendees can make the best purchasing decision for their company.
“Our team is committed to creating a virtual platform that brings together the data center industry for productive discussion, innovation and collaboration,” said Kelly Kocher, Market Leader, Data Center World. “Data Center World 2020: A Virtual Experience will provide the same quality content and meaningful conversations that have always been associated with our live events, while fully leveraging the advantages only a digital platform can offer.”
