The annual global conversation for investment and expansion in data center, digital infrastructure, connectivity and sustainable energy
The first edition event attracted more than 280 registrations comprising of senior executives from the investor, operator, enterprise and technology solutions segments. Geographically participation came from Europe, MENA and North America.
Delegate feedback suggests that in attending the event the quality of content, outstanding speaker academy and high end networking in a new ambience was very conducive to business opportunity for investors and commercial transactions, and were among the most important values associated with the event.
They also particularly enjoyed being in the beautiful town of Antibes, set on the edge of the Mediterranean, a spectacular backdrop for meetings with a wide range of affordable restaurants, extensive range of hotel accommodation (more than 1,000 rooms are within walking distance of the event venue) and ease of access with trains and airports.
In 2023, Platform has extended content coverage into three unique segments.
Over the past three years, PE firms have moved to acquire and invest in datacenter real estate and critical infrastructure platforms. New funds, Alternatives, banks and investors have sought to leverage scale opportunities across the sector.
Following the Platform event in 2022, Antibes is now positioned as the meeting point for investor conversations about markets, outlook and transactions. Investment decisions about digital infrastructure involve an array of criteria covered in other parts of this programme including risk, diversity in the boardroom, identifying value outside the metro, scaling Edge, metaverse and blockchain, and how all of these developments need to comply with net zero objectives and ESG.
Uniquely this summit offers such a 360 perspective.
Connectivity with carriers for dark fiber, subsea cables, cable landing stations, as well as renewable power availability remain among the critical criteria infrastructure investment and deployment decisions to support data center and Edge development in Tier II and Tier III locations.
Climate change and sustainability are driving global conversations about corporate social responsibility, ESG and reaching Net Zero. Reducing carbon emissions is one of the most critical goals for the data center industry today. As demand for digital infrastructure accelerates, data center operators need to find the means to meet new and unprecedented levels of demand, while taking immediate steps towards curbing carbon emissions. The Symposium addresses sourcing renewable energy, designing, building and managing data centers and digital infrastructure sustainably and tracks evidence of progress each year.
To celebrate and honour exceptional achievements of people and players in datacenter, digital and energy infrastructure, we will hold a Celebration of Industry Peers during the event.
An announcement from the Panel of Peers will be made detailing the Celebration categories and submission process.
