CAPRE Washington, DC & Mid-Atlantic Data Center & Cloud Summit
September 9 @ 12:00 pm - September 10 @ 5:00 pm
The seventh annual CAPRE Washington & Mid-Atlantic Data Center and Cloud Infrastruction Summit will focus on hyperscale, colocation, cloud and edge. There has been tremendous growth within the industry in 2019 and it continues to evolve at a rapid pace. This year’s event will explore whether Northern Virginia, the data center capital of the world, has reached an inflection point.
CAPRE has also prioritized widening the talent pool and making the data center industry more accessible and inclusive. This year, we will be hosting our inaugural Women of Mission Critical: Awareness, Leadership, Mentoring event on September 9 at Stone Tower Winery, as prelude to our annual Summit. Presentations and discussions will be led by leading experts and cover topics around leadership, diversity, skills and talent, and the state of the current environment. We encourage all those attending the Summit to attend this new event and take part in the discussion.
This year’s kickoff presentation from data center site selection strategist Allen Tucker will address the following theme: “Northern Virginia continues to grow rapidly in size and importance to the world’s internet connectivity. However, despite the rapid growth, other markets have also emerged as key contenders while some markets failed to compete despite having the right characteristics for success.”
