Platform, an upcoming data centre forum, is sponsored by some of the biggest names in the data centre industry, including Schneider, Siemens and F-AR

The new Platform event - which launches today, and runs till the 16th of September - is taking place in Antibes, France. 

The forum will host more than 60 expert speakers, including key industry investors, data centre platform owners, and energy specialists, who will converge in Antibes to assess the outlook and opportunities ahead following unprecedented investment over the past two years.

The primary focus of the forum is interpreting the current market sentiment towards the sector, how M&A activity will play out, the impact of global market entry by private equity firms investing billion dollar funds, challenges ahead for energy mitigation and factors impacting ROI and the opportunity and risk over the next twelve months.

“It also embraces the hubs, facilitators, large-scale users and sustainable energy resources emerging across markets and the investment opportunities they represent.”

“I’m delighted to be involved in this exciting initiative,” commented Nicola Hayes, Non-Executive Director of Platform.
