Over the last several years, Europe has emerged as a leading hotspot in the digital industry. Meanwhile, according to international research firm, BroadGroup, the growing demand for 5G, virtual reality and Artificial Intelligence is set to shake up the Continent’s tech market well beyond 2017. Now, global connectivity, cloud and data center executives are eyeing the European market and trying to predict where it is heading.

On January 24, 2018, leaders from across the industry will meet at RAI Amsterdam for the KickStart Europe 2018 conference, hosted by Digital Gateway to Europe (DG). This conference will provide a wide range of networking, educational and business development opportunities, enabling attendees to expand and grow their companies in the European digital industry.

KickStart Europe 2018 will offer expert panel sessions and presentations from leading executives and analysts. Attendees will benefit from key insights and predictions regarding the future of the European connectivity, cloud, and data center markets. The conference will also feature influencers and thought leaders from companies like Eurofiber, Vertiv,  CBRE, Grass Consulting and NIBC among others.

“Over the course of the past year, we’ve witnessed more data generated than in the cumulative history of mankind,” said Stijn Grove, Managing Director, Digital Gateway to Europe. “A great deal of this data was generated in Europe as our economy has become fully data-driven.

“However, with double digit growth there are many challenges for the industry,” Mr. Grove added, “which is why we’ve created the KickStart Europe summit as a means to provide the digital industry with a platform for education and collaboration to maintain pace with evolving trends.”

KickStart Europe 2018 is sure to offer comprehensive educational and networking opportunities for international industry professionals, including developers, investors, designers and suppliers. There will also be extended breaks and a special social event scheduled in the evening. This year’s sponsors include NHN/Agriport, Vertiv, Caransa Groep, CBRE, AC Niellsen, Unica, ICTroom and NIBC.
