Digital infrastructure

Last year, the first Pan African DataCentres Exhibition & Conference was held in the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, and is an event totally focused on the issues, challenges and infrastructure needed to design, build, maintain and operate data centres and digital infrastructure.

This was a geo-clone of the highly respected DataCentres Ireland event which, for the past 14years, has delivered a quality audience of buyers, specifiers and decision makers.

When the pan-African data centres event was delivered, it attracted more than 1,000 attendees and was heralded as a great success by exhibitors, visitors, delegates and speakers alike.

Attendees liked the focused nature of the show, the conference content delivered and the professional atmosphere the event created.

Exhibitors were impressed with the quality of the audience and the professional atmosphere of the event, which allowed for relevant and detailed conversations to be held.

The Pan African DataCentres Exhibition & Conference will be held again at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa, on July 16-17, 2024, and we invite exhibitors, visitors and delegates to attend the event.
