Data Center World is the premier international conference for data center and facilities managers. Unique in its field, the conference draws upon the knowledge and experience of the more than 3,500 AFCOM members to create an end-user driven program that focuses on providing real solutions for today’s data center and facilities managers. At the heart of this one-of-a-kind conference is more than 3 decades of experience bringing the best education, networking, and access to vendors together into one event:Vendor-Neutral Education

All of the sessions are held to strict guidelines to ensure attendees receive top-quality education without sales pitches. Unlike other conferences for data center professionals, Data Center World is designed to help you discover the solutions that will be most efficient and cost-effective for you—not just those offered by organizations who have “paid to play.”

Built by end-users

This year’s sessions have been chosen to address the most common requests we’ve received from you and more than 3,500 of your industry peers. Data Center World sessions cover a full range of topics including: DCIM, management, facilities, power and cooling, data center builds and design, disaster recovery, security, virtualization, colocation, and cloud. We’ve also added general sessions for all attendees on two of the most-requested topics we’ve received in the last year: electrical grid reliability and the future of data centers.

Networking Structured to Create Valued Connections

This year will feature more networking opportunities than ever before—enabling you to make connections you can call on year-round, creating or expanding a contact list that can save you countless hours searching for answers.
