Take part in our 2023 conference programme

The Data Centre World 2023 conference programme will feature a series of panel sessions across the two days. Each panel will focus on a specific topic / trend within the broader themes outlined below and will feature senior data centre specialists, innovators and business leaders from enterprise and public sector organisations and one technology provider. We also invite you to submit briefs for fireside chat, solo sessions and interview style sessions if you feel that the subject would be better suited to those formats.

Some tips for Session Success

- Use a title that says clearly what it is. Titles drive attendance.

- Present something new and relevant to the audience.

- Use real examples. Avoid abstract terms and acronyms.

- Use storytelling and data to illustrate key points.

- Take questions during the session.

- Use quizzes and questions to keep the audience engaged.

- Field a speaker who is engaging, knowledgeable and passionate. Good speakers drive attendance.

- Be prepared to quantify costs, timeframes and outcomes with at least comparative data

- Don’t start with a slide “Who we are” 

- Don’t start by assuming you know the audience. If possible ask them / have an idea of what they want to know BEFORE launching into the conversation

- Don’t stick to the script – it may be far better to answer audience questions than run the planned presentation

- Don’t read slides – tell a story

- Don’t use more than 10 slides for a 30 minute presentation and make sure at least 10 minutes left for interaction and dialogue

- Don’t avoid answering question of how much it costs or how long to deploy by saying: “it depends” – give an illustration with possible ranges and contexts
