Full Program Agenda

Due to being forced to move the event from Spring to Fall, we discovered scheduling challenges in the Atlanta market that require us to cancel the event.

Our next event is Data Center World Global, March 19-22, 2019 in Phoenix, AZ. We invite you to join more than 1600 data center and IT infrastructure pros for the best networking, vendor-neutral education, industry-leading speakers, and the broadest access to vendors.
