It’s an exciting time to be covering the data center, cloud and IT space, as there is a tremendous amount of innovation occurring, with innumerable organizations looking to connect with press and media outlets to promote their products and services to global audiences and drive awareness about their strategic objectives.

Two conferences that should be on every media company’s radar are the co-located Data Center World and HostingCon Global 2017 events that are taking place April 3-6 at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles. These global events will offer an inaugural press room as well as dedicated online media hubs. There will also be a combined exhibit hall for both conferences’ exhibitors. Attendees will be able to discover more services and solutions than ever before, while networking with an expanded audience.

“The inaugural media hub at this year’s co-located Data Center World and HostingCon conferences will provide attendees with virtually limitless opportunities to connect with trade and business media concerning their latest innovative products, services and partnerships,” stated Kelly Kocher, Vice President of Event Sales and Operations at Penton Technology.  “We look forward to facilitating meaningful dialogues between company representatives and the press, and believe the media hub will be a critical vehicle in creating exchanges that will have an immediate impact across both events and stakeholders throughout the data center, cloud and service provider community.”
