DCA Trade Association Update Seminar
Tue 14 March 2017, 12:00 – 16:30 GMT
A great deal has happened over the past 12 months and it’s not always easy to keep up with changing events. In conjunction with DCW the Data Centre Trade Association will be holding an Industry Update Seminar at the Excel Exhibition Centre on the afternoon of the 14th March at the Excel Exhibition Centre to help bring you up to speed.
Last year we found that many DCW delegates and sponsors either set up the day before or took the initiative to travel the day before to avoid rush hour traffic so they were nice and early for when the DCW doors open at 09.00 the morning after. Therefore, we thought it made sense to take advantage of this by arranging the Industry Update Session on the afternoon before (14th March) between 13:00 to 16:30 (with registration opening at 12:00). After the seminar the can adjourn for some good old networking in the Fox.
We hosted a similar event just before the DCT conference in Manchester last year and it was very well attended and received and we did not want those members who did not manage to get to Manchester to miss out on these important updates as much of it will not be covered in the DCW programme.
The content presented in this afternoon update session will be of value to both data centre operators and suppliers. The Industry Update Seminar will be hosted by the DCA in conjunction with DCW and chaired by Dr Jon Summers from Leeds University.
The update seminar is free to attend and you can register by simply clicking on the following link or by visiting the DCA events calendar.
Thank you for registering to attend the Data Centre Update Seminar on the afternoon of the 14th March at the Excel Conference Centre, tea and coffee will be ready for you on arrival.
Although registration opens at 12:00 the programme does not officially kick off until 13:00. If your organisation has other colleagues who might be attending EXCEL on the 14th for stand build-up and would like to register then please let them know they are more than welcome to attend.
