Dates and venue announced for 2016 Data Centres North Conference and Exhibition


Data Centres North 2016 is applicable to everyone from those involved with smaller server rooms and comms rooms to the staff responsible for Operations, NOC, IT, Networking and Facilities Management, at large colocation, corporate and cloud data centres.

Data Centres North 2016 will be held at the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club – Manchester’s world famous Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground and conference centre. This refreshingly intimate venue adds to the quality of the conference – and the ability to have unhurried and high quality conversations with vendors and the speakers makes Data Centres North 2016 well worth taking time to visit.

DCN is proud to be a media partner of Data Centres North, which is also supported by the Data Centre Alliance, British Computer Society Data Centre SIG, techUK, Datacentres.ME and other influential organisations.

Steve Hone, CEO of the Data Centre Alliance, said, ‘The needs and drivers of data centres north of London are decidedly different. Manchester is the longest standing second capital of data centres but it is now joined by significant concentrations in Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and a growing list of other cities. It is essential that this specialist community has its own dedicated conferences and exhibitions – we are pleased to support this and all such initiatives.’

The full line up of speakers and panel moderators will be announced after Christmas but will include experts like Mike Kelly, CEO of Data Central; Professor Dennis Kehoe of Aimes; Steve Hone, CEO of the Data Centre Alliance; Professor John Summers of Leeds University, Emma Fryer of techUK, Rob Cardigan, chairman of BSi TCT/7 and Mark Acton, director, Mission Critical Environments, CBRE.

Manufacturers and service providers exhibiting at Data Centres North will include: DencoHappel (previously GEA Denco,) Eltek Power, Cableline Group, CBRE, Stulz, Thorlux Lighting, Redetek, Metz Connect, Munters, Mavin Group, EcoCooling, Aqua Cooling, Future facilities, Heatload, techUK, BCS DCSG and the Uptime Institute.
