About the 10x10’s

This is both a challenging yet exciting time for anyone tasked with managing their businesses digital infrastructure. As the pace of digitalisation continues to accelerate so does the pressure when trying to balance the scales on serious issues such as resilience, sustainability, energy costs, data security, CSR compliance and Net Zero targets.

This is the first in a series of Data Centre focused, digital infrastructure updates and networking events planned over the next 12 months. If you were lucky enough to attend one of Simon Allen's highly regarded UKDCIG network update events, you will know what to expect. The original quality and format of these events has been maintained, with the afternoon consisting of short, punchy, 10-minute thought leadership industry updates on the key issues impacting the Data Centre sector. This will be followed by a networking drinks reception in the evening, providing the opportunity for speakers and delegates to follow up and network with DCA members and fellow peers

These events are brought to you by the Data Centre Alliance (DCA) and Intelligent Data Centres (IDC). Providing business owners, high-level decision makers and infrastructure professionals with strategic guidance on the latest industry trends and developments. These events facilitate a perfect collaborative environment where stakeholders can come together to share ideas and make new connections. The DCA 10x10 events will continue to take place in London at the Cafe Royal, Piccadilly Circus.

Attendance to these events is free of charge, restricted to a maximum of 80 delegates and are by invitation only. If you have not yet been contacted and would like to submit a request to attend, then please click on the registration link and a member of the team will contact you.
