“I attended and spoke in CapRate’s Greater Boston & New England Data Center Summit in December 2017. The event had a good mix of data center executives (providers, end-users and engineers) and the sessions offered a significant learning opportunity.” — Indra Purkayastha, CEO & Founder, Purkay Labs

“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 numerous CapRE Data Center Summits. “It was also great to meet some of the speakers who are true leaders and visionaries in the third-party data center industry.”

“I have attended CAPRE Data Center Events in New York, Santa Clara, and Chicago and have found the panels and participants to have unique ideas and perspectives,” said Jim Kerrigan of North American Data Centers. “I’ve always enjoyed the conferences and the attendees that I meet there.”
