London/Monaco, 9 May 2016 – Datacloud Europe 2016 ( which meets in June 7-9 in Monaco, will feature French companies and business leaders alongside international organisations presenting on issues around the critical eco system of cloud connectivity, fiber networks and data centers, as well as showcasing products and services.

French organisations attending include Schneider Electric International, APL, Diffraction Analysis, Bouygues, Vinci, Engie, Socomec, GLP Data Diffraction Analysis and Critical Building, many of whom have been supporters and attendees of BroadGroup’s Datacloud conferences for a number of years, recognising the value of the event for generating profitable business.

The congress offers companies exceptional networking opportunities as well as the potential for securing new business. Most Enterprises attending the event have an interest in deploying IT Assets in Europe. However, a recent BroadGroup survey of enterprise conference attendees showed that 47% identified Ireland and 43% identified Nordic markets specifically with 30% citing South East Asia.

Philip Low, managing director of BroadGroup, the event researchers and producers said “The content focus is extremely timely with many enterprises continuing to shift infrastructure to Cloud-based platforms over the next 24 months,”

“The need to interconnect the data center with business Cloud users and between themselves is not only critical, but also more complex as already evidenced in the selection of location for new facilities.”

In addition, BroadGroup is collocating the first ever, Africa summit, Invest in Data Center Africa, with the Datacloud congress which will discuss the challenges and opportunities in Africa for digital infrastructure and the expansion of data centres and connectivity across the continent. This offers a unique opportunity for French companies already engaged or planning to explore business opportunities in Africa.

Datacloud Europe 2016 in Monaco will for three days be home to many of the most influential thought leaders, business minds and decision makers in the data center and cloud industry and once again reflects the core offering of high level content, leadership networking and a place where business deals are done.

The programme includes the Datacloud Awards ceremony and dinner on the evening of 7 June, followed by two days of conference and exhibition. The Invest in Data Center Africa running alongside the main conference is aimed at Investors, financiers, data center operators, subsea and fibre developers and pioneers responding to the challenges of creating the African data center network.
