About Us

DATACENTRE.ME (DCME) provides a resource for data centre professionals and is a hub for both vendors and end users, providing industry news, directory (who you can partner / network with, buy from, sell to, etc), events and training courses.  The DCME website launched in December 2011 and, during that time, has become a valuable information portal for the data centre industry.

We have been running successful networking events for the data centre industry since September 2013 – mostly in central London and we ran our first end user networking event in Dublin in November 2019.  See our list of past events here for more information such as attendee lists, photos & testimonials.

The DCME Team consists of:

  • Caroline is the Owner & Founder of DCME.  Caroline has a long history of selling exhibition space & sponsorship packages within telecoms at the end of the nineties and moved into the ever-growing datacoms space in 2006.  She launched the DATACENTRE.ME website on 8th December 2011 as a specialised and targeted information portal for the data centre industry and the highly successful quarterly industry events followed in September 2013.  Suffice to say, DCME continues to add immense value to the data centre industry and is going from strength to strength.
  • Nicola joined the team shortly afterwards in June 2012 and does a wonderful job of keeping our database and procedures up-to-date and GDPR compliant.  Nikki & Caroline met in the summer of 2008 whilst working together at a previous company.
  • Ruth joined us in June 2018 and takes amazing care of our social media and all the creative elements of the business.  Ruth used to work for one of our clients (and no, we didn't poach her – she went to work elsewhere which, luckily for us, didn't work out!)
  • Eve graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2022, where she studied Criminology & Forensics.  Eve joined the team in 2020 on a part time basis around her studies and then on a full-time basis in June 2022 once she graduated.  Eve provides a valuable administration role and keeps us updated with industry news too, all of which is allowing her to save up to go travelling in circa 2024!  
  • Belle started working for us on a part time basis in summer 2022 whilst still at uni.  Belle has now graduated from Portsmouth University and continues to work with us, taking care of inviting end users to attend our events and the associated administration. 
  • Amber joined the team in April 2023 on a part time basis.  she has now left her previous contract and will be working circa 28 hours per week moving forward and assisting with everything from admin, event registrations, marketing, website sponsorship renewals and client testimonials.  A versatile role to say the least!  Welcome to the team Amber! 🙂  
  • Sam joined us in early November 2020 on a full-time basis.  Sam has now returned to a previous company but continues to assist us with valuable website administration and client liaison on an ad-hoc part time basis. 

Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss anything in relation to this website or our events – we look forward to hearing from you 🙂

Data Centre Directory

Your ultimate resource to learn about the leading companies in the industry.


The DATACENTRE.ME website (DCME) and events were developed by Owner & Founder Caroline Hitchins, with a specific focus on providing an excellent service that caters for the needs of both vendors and end users within this specialised industry.

Understanding the various personalities within this sector has enabled DATACENTRE.ME to deliver highly respected quarterly end user networking events since 2013.  These events are attended by high-level decision makers and influential industry experts.  These quarterly events have become hugely influential within the data centre calendar and are by personal invitation only. The DATACENTRE.ME team liaises with every invitee to ensure that each and every attendee qualifies for a complimentary ticket by being a senior-level professional that buys or specifies products & services within the data centre industry.  In simple terms, DATACENTRE.ME events facilitate & nurture valuable relationships by bringing the right people together in a relaxed and informal environment.
