Fast-Growing Industry Media Outlet
“Now that TheWHIR has discontinued its operations as of January 1, 2018, there’s not so many serious media outlets left globally to provide relevant news for the cloud, hosting and data center services industry,” said Stijn Grove, Managing Director Dutch Data Center Association & Digital Gateway to Europe as well as Chairman of the KickStart Europe Conference. “HostingJournalist.com is a fast-growing editorial platform with great articles, interviews, blogs, videos and more, managed by ambitious people willing to go the extra mile to help the global cloud, hosting and data center industry flourish and grow. Our ambitions are comparable actually. We’re quite happy with the knowledge sharing initiatives developed already and we’re looking forward to our new to develop joint efforts in the near future.”
HostingJournalist.com editors will be present at KickStart Europe 2018 to cover the event and the knowledge being shared.
“HostingJournalist.com is an unbiased news platform for the global cloud, hosting and data center services industry,” said Koen Stegeman, Editor-in-Chief and co-founder of HostingJournalist.com. “As such we welcome cooperation agreements with organizations like Digital Gateway to Europe and others sharing our goals of spreading need-to-know information and news throughout the industry to help the global community of suppliers, service providers, and end users make carefully weighed decisions. Digital Gateway to Europe is a Dutch initiative but with European ambitions where it comes to representing the interests of the data center industry. I can imagine that we will soon expand our horizons with other branch initiatives as well. You may expect for example that our new to deploy Knowledge Center will also include reports from other branch initiatives around the world in the near future including U.S. and Asian ones.”
