Celebrating the 3rd Year of Data Centre Innovation and Excellence
On 2nd March 2022, CloserStill Media, in partnership with Dunwoody LLP, staged a live presentation of Data Centre World Awards at ExCeL London!
The awards took place during Tech Show London 2022 to recognise and reward those across the data centre sector for innovative and leading achievements across various categories.
As the world’s leading exhibition for data centres, Data Centre World has long been the venue for displaying and exhibiting the best the industry provides, be it service systems or products. With 250,000 subscribers and 30,000 attendees to the shows across London, Frankfurt, Paris and Madrid, the industry uses the exhibitions to share and demonstrate the new and innovative solutions that constantly improves data centres and their operations. DCW wishes to celebrate and recognise these developments and achievements and award those most successful.
These annual awards are given for improvements that change for the better what we can do and how we serve the sector. They are focused on critical industry objectives and therefore represent the highest standard of relevance and recognition. DCW has for many years, alongside Dunwoody LLP's support, showcased best practice through the live 6th generation data centre exhibit.
The awards, again powered by Dunwoody LLP's support coupled with a panel of industry experts, continue to showcase and highlight the industry's winners and success stories, and will take place once again on the 8th March 2023 at ExCeL, London.
