Events

Where deals are done in the cloud economy

Over the last decade BroadGroup has successfully built and hosted a series of events for datacentre, cloud and IT infrastructure professionals respected by sponsors, attendees and speakers alike. Achieving a series of ‘firsts’ BroadGroup hosted the first ever cloud event in London – Powered by Cloud – which achieved enormous recognition as the first transatlantic conference bringing cloud energy and focus to businesses in the UK and Europe. We were also the first to develop and produce the acclaimed Dark Fibre Convention which brings together international buyers and sellers of dark fibre.

Internationally we have produced a range of events in Asia , specially tailored to the region’s rapidly evolving datacentre and cloud markets in Singapore, Malaysia/Johor, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Sydney. In the middle east, events have been held in Dubai, Abu Dhabi (UAE), in Doha Qatar and in Mauritius. In Europe BroadGroup hosts Datacloud Global Congress the international annual event in Monaco attended by more than 50 countries.
