BroadGroup has announced the launch of the leadership summit for Africa’s data centre, cloud, fiber and edge infrastructure leadership, 28 September 2018 in Marrakech.

Recognising the challenges for Africa’s digital economy and growth this forum establishes for the first time a unique opportunity for companies engaged in creating new IT ecosystems, their investors financiers and government agencies to meet, network and collaborate. 

As more is invested in improving connectivity, the gradual emergence of Internet exchanges, and a shift to local content hosting, investors have responded with the construction of a number of high quality facilities and partial use of new digital parks.

Attendees will include senior executives managing data centre businesses from across the continent, subsea and terrestrial fiber providers, satellite services, content and solutions providers, telcos, constructions firms, power grid and innovative energy suppliers.

“Datacloud Africa is focused on investing, powering, connecting, and deploying data centres across the continent,” said Gregory Gerot, vice president and managing director of BroadGroup. “It will bring together engaged leaders and investors with a single objective to create a new pathway for practical outcomes to accelerate data centre development.”

Datacloud Africa takes place at the Four Seasons hotel in Marrakech 28 September 2018 and will include an Awards ceremony.
