“A fantastic data center summit event in New York City. The topics were current and the market information was very informative,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Sean Brady, who has participated in all five prior conferences. “It was also great to meet some of the speakers who are true leaders and visionaries in the third-party data center industry.”

As global data center markets continue to see new demand due to migration of end-user data to cloud service, traditional colocation and wholesale facilities, CAPRE’s Seventh Annual Southwest Data Center Summit will bring new topics under the radar, including:

  • Cost of development: Competing in the southwest and emerging submarkets and obstacles;
  • Describing the changing nature of supply: Hyperscale/“Super wholesale” vs colo;
  • Is there too much capital entering the space and not enough opportunity?;
  • Analysis of demand levels for IT service provider vs. infrastructure provider;
  • The Advent of 5G, mobile edge, micro data centers & evolution of the next generation;
  • Best practices for site selection;
  • The challenge of data center valuation: Determining value in the current environment of hyperscale/cloud growth
