CAPRE’s Seattle Summit: Join the Battle of the San Francisco, Seattle & Portland Markets, Explore Innovations in Subsea Cables, Cloud Security & More on November 15-16

If you are active in the data center industry or looking to become more active, you will not want to miss CAPRE’s Third Annual Greater Seattle & Pacific Northwest Data Center Summit. More than 300 senior-level executives will be coming together for this full-day conference that will be held on November 15-16 at The Columbia Club in Seattle. The summit will feature 40+ speakers who will offer comprehensive analysis of the market opportunities and challenges. The Third Annual Greater Seattle & Pacific Northwest Data Center Summit will feature 13 hours of combined informational panels and networking. Participating end-users will represent leading financial institutions and the region’s most active firms.

“I’m looking forward to meeting with and seeing the companies there,” said John Sabey, Executive Director of Sabey Data Centers. “Finding out what they’re thinking about, what’s driving them, what might make them come to Seattle or the Pacific Northwest. Are they bringing latency-sensitive apps into Seattle? Are they coming to take advantage of green hydro power? What is driving their decisions to come to the Pacific Northwest?”

“As always, we’re looking forward to catching up with like-minded experts and educating people on our services – infrastructure as a service, colocation and the Cloud,” said Eric Hulbert, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Opus Interactive. “Those are the areas we typically talk about. The multi-tenant cloud space – having that conversation with anyone who is looking to migrate from on-premise to something new and different. We’re always excited to have those conversations – we want to help and we want to learn how we can help. Then of course we love to learn about the 360 degree perspective of a data center, how it’s growing, specifically for this conference and in the Pacific Northwest, and how it will shape 2018-2020.”

Who should attend and participate?

  • Data center colocation, wholesale and cloud customers
  • Data center developers
  • Data center investors
  • Data center debt and/or equity sources

  • What firms were most active in 2016?
  • What types of industry changes might we expect in 2017?

  • What are the new innovations relative to connectivity and data center design?
  • What is the global outlook in 2017 for data center investment and development?
  • Why is there such a huge valuation differential between the “haves” and “have nots” – i.e., scale, cash flow, strategic relevance?
