Now in its second year, the ground breaking Invest in Data Centre Africa Summit (www.DataCloudCongress.com/Africa) will host speakers from leading companies operating on both sides of the Mediterranean, including Orange, Vodafone and Schneider Electric.

The Summit will take place on the 7th of June, colocated at the Datacloud Europe 2017 conference in the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco. This is the prime forum for leaders, innovators and investors from Africa, Europe and beyond to meet, network and do deals.

“Africa is a growth story for the next decade,” comments Philip Low, chairman, BroadGroup, the consulting company who research and produce Datacloud. “Attendees will be able to hear from and meet the leadership of companies pioneering the evolution of digital networks and critical facilities across the continent along with a financial perspective with the International Finance Corporation and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in attendance.”

The theme of internal data centre and connectivity developments within Africa will be explored by speakers from data centres in Nigeria, Kenya, Zambia, South Africa, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Egypt and Morocco taking part in Leadership Roundtable discussions.

Companies such as Schneider Electric, Flexenclosure, Etix Everywhere, The Uptime Institute, Minkels, APL, & NxtVn who are facilitating partnerships between the African and European data centre communities will exhibit at Datacloud Europe 2017.

“No forum so far has focused on this tremendous opportunity to explain the much needed data centre investment opportunity, galvanise interest and significantly impact the development of digital technologies across the continent. We hope that the Summit will better serve the unique needs of partnership and innovation from Scandinavia to South Africa,” says Marcello Brescia, Africa business lead at BroadGroup.
