I attended the Data Centre Sustainability End User Networking Event. The event was very well organised and the attendance was great. This is a credit to Caroline and her team who go over and above to make you feel welcome.
It was great to speak to other people within the industry and catch up with a few people from the past. I am really looking forward to the next event.
I attended the DCME VIRTUAL Education, Knowledge-Share & CPD Month in September 2022. This was a fantastic online learning platform where many leading businesses in the Data Centre community were able to showcase their products and services. DCME VIRTUAL was a great platform on which I enjoyed access to subject matter expertise and knowledge share through videos, links to company information and online panel discussions. I thoroughly recommend DCME's events and am looking forward to the next one!
Why else would you want to visit a large, upmarket bar in the City of London during one of the hottest evenings of the year, other than to attend one of the Datacentre.ME events!
Surprisingly (COVID-19 and temperature-related issues considered), it was very well attended and it was a great chance to (re)connect with many old and new peers in the industry – everyone I wanted to talk to was there. The food was tasty and I enjoyed a glass or two of wine as well. I was very glad to have made the effort and I’ve already put the next one in my calendar.
C&D were proud to sponsor DCME’s Data Centre Sustainability End User Networking Event. This was the first DCME event we had attended and we thought it was the perfect opportunity to network and discuss our new Pure Lead Plus product, which we had just launched for the Data Centre market.
The venue was perfect for networking and Caroline and Ruth were the perfect hosts, making us feel really welcome. It was great to meet some old friends, make some new connections and discuss business opportunities.
C&D will definitely participate in future events!
The “Data Centre Sustainability” end user networking evening was a fantastic event organised by Caroline Hitchins DATACENTRE.ME and DATACENTRE.ME. Great to be in a room with so many interesting people, talking BMS/EPMS with those in the data centre sector. An excellent evening all round – looking forward to the next networking event!
Thanks to Caroline & the DATACENTRE.ME team for organising a great event. This was the first time that we sponsored and exhibited at a DCME event.
It was well organised in a great venue with a really good mix of clients and we received some direct enquiries on the night that we are following up on. It was definitely worthwhile for us and we look forward to attending future events.
A big thanks to Caroline and the DCME team for organising such a delightful event.
The DCME “Data Centre Operations” End User Networking Event was exceptionally well organised with plenty of networking opportunities. Lots of people were in attendance and it was a very enjoyable evening.
It was lovely to catch up with my old contacts and I also made new contacts with some key individuals. There is no doubt that DCME will continue to grow in the future and I look forward to attending the next event.
So lovely to meet up with so many I had communicated with on Teams and Zoom. The atmosphere was fantastic! So great to meet old and new connections! Loved the picture booth! Food and wine was good too! A big thank you and congratulations for raising so much for charity. DATACENTRE.ME were innovative.
For making connections and contacts in the industry, it was the best event that I have attended during this busy Christmas Period. Less formal that resulted in everyone being open to chatting and connecting.
The DCME Charity “Christmas Kick-Off” party was a very interesting event. Really useful for someone new in the DC industry.
Thank you to the DATACENTRE.ME team for another well attended and well-organised networking event.
After over a year of virtual meetings and conferences, you really value the ability to see people face to face and the DCME Charity Christmas event provides the perfect atmosphere to network with new industry professionals and reconnect with existing contacts.
I have attended a number of DCME events over the years and they just seem to get better and better. Great organisation, great focus on remaining COVID safe and great attendee list. Looking forward to your events in 2022.
A great networking event for business colleagues to share knowledge and experience in this exciting segment. Well done to DATACENTRE.ME for continuing to enable us to meet during very difficult and challenging circumstances.
A great evening and chance to catch up informally with many customers and friends after a strange 18 months.
Well done to Caroline and the DCME team. The Charity ‘Christmas Kick-Off’ Party was a fantastic event at a great venue and was superbly organised. Already looking forward to next year’s events.
Great event as usual and very smoothly run and safely organised.
The DATACENTRE.ME September event in central London was superb. As our first event as both Website and Event Sponsors, we found this to be a well-executed, well-attended evening of networking at a fantastic venue.
What the DCME team put together was excellent, particularly considering the current challenges that COVID presents; they could not have done any more to make it feel as safe as possible. The measures put in place at the event, in line with government guidelines, made for a safe environment, making the return to ‘in-person’ events easy!
It was great to get back to networking with old friends and making new connections. It wasn’t just about the quantity of people, but more the depth of quality of all those who attended that made this event extremely worthwhile.
I very much look forward to the next one!
The recent DCME End User Networking evening in central London was a fantastically well organised event. It made meeting face to face with industry people possible again.
We are hopefully nearing the end of the pandemic and DCME acknowledged this risk and implemented COVID measures for the event. Due to these measures everybody was safe and could participate together again.
I am looking forward to the next one.
Another great event put on by DCME.
So great to be back face to face and seeing people together again networking after what has been a very challenging year. Good to see contacts old and new, meeting new partners and sharing industry knowledge and expertise whilst sharing a drink and having a good laugh.
Well done to Caroline and the team for organising such a great night, still having to deal with their fair share of covid restrictions which was dealt with flawlessly.
Great networking event organised by DCME in September 2021 in London. Fantastic turnout gave me and my colleagues an opportunity to meet so many of our industry peers we had not seen for long months of lockdown.
The DCME events have always been really relevant for us in terms of relationships and business development bringing many consultants, contractors and clients together. It’s really pleasing to see them back in real life!
The recent DCME event in central London was a fantastic return to face to face networking. A great venue (with a nice long bar and easy access to drinks and nibbles) made it an easy event to catch-up with a whole host of key people in the data centre sector.
The informal surroundings allowed relaxed introductions to new contacts and easy interactions to expand interactions within the industry.
The communications prior to the event and the efficient organisation on the day contributed greatly to both the turnout and the enjoyment.
Looking forward to the next one!
Thank you to the DATACENTRE.ME team for hosting the recent networking event in London.
It was an enjoyable and very well attended event, and it was great to be able to re-engage in face to face dialogues and reconnect with existing contacts whilst making new ones. It was also very interesting to hear the different perspectives on how the market sector has fared throughout the pandemic, and how it has affected everyone.
The calibre of attendees at the event was fantastic, which resulted in high quality engagements and, we are pleased to say, has led to further discussions. A very worthwhile and valuable evening.
Well done Caroline and DCME team for a great event. Sincere thanks and gratitude for arranging.
Great venue and engagement making it a very energised and collaborative evening. Aside from the business aspect, just great to re-engage with friends and colleagues.
Great event with a great set of sponsors! Looking forward to the next one.
I cannot over state my thanks to you all for arranging and hosting the DCME drinks soiree yesterday. The venue was great, service provided of a very high standard and exhibitors welcoming and “non-sales” in attitude – informative, helpful, engaging. The most important part though was reconnecting in person with old friends (it’s been way too long) and making new – for creating this opportunity I am very grateful.
Well done for how you and the team managed the “front of house” entrance. In this time of reengagement it’s important to create “safe” environments for people to gather and that can only be achieved with some up front pragmatic and clear guidance + execution. Your pre event messaging and execution on the day were flawless, well done!
Thank you for such a great face to face event after such a long time of being in the virtual world. I was really hesitant about being in a room with so many people but the COVID precautions you had in place were fantastic and gave me confidence that we were all as safe as we could be.
It was so lovely to meet and greet old and new faces throughout the evening. We have come away from the event with some great new solid contacts too which will now be continued.
Once again if I can thank you and your team for all your efforts to put on the event in such difficult times. Well done and I look forward to the next one.
The recent DCME VIRTUAL conference and exhibition was absolutely fantastic. The virtual environment was simple to navigate and, from a technical point of view, the virtual exhibition hall was superb. I found the wealth of information available on the exhibition booths extremely useful and I have downloaded enough reading material to last me the rest of the year! What's more, it's all really relevant information which I find extremely useful in my day to day role and when understanding the various technologies available in the market.
I absolutely loved all of the conference sessions – they were easy to access and it was useful to be able to type questions for the speakers to answer in real time.
Everything from end to end was as professional as possible – I attend a lot of online events and DCME VIRTUAL was up there with the very best!
DCME VIRTUAL International Conference & Exhibition – Spring 2021
Thanks so much. There were some great panel discussions and, as a launch for smart lighting solutions from Signify into the DC space, it was very worthwhile.
CTS-INT’Ltd have attended numerous events hosted by the DATACENTRE.ME Team. These events are professionally manged and only attract a high calibre of elite sponsors and attendees. This has assisted us in engaging with suppliers to discuss the latest developments in the Data Centre industry and networking with our peers.
DATACENTRE.ME operates an up to date and active website with the latest industry news and excellent insight to current trends.
CTS-INT’Ltd are pleased to sponsor the DATACENTRE.ME website and look forward to working with the Team.
DCME VIRTUAL International Conference & Exhibition – Spring 2021
Very impressed with the quality of this event – both in terms of conference sessions and networking opportunities. The setup of the virtual exhibition hall was excellent and the platform was easy to use.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with all the team, thank you for putting on such a great event!
On behalf of EA-RS Fire Engineering, we wanted to thank Ruth, Caroline, Nicola and Sam for all your hard work, we very much enjoyed the event.
I enjoyed attending the DCME VIRTUAL International Conference & Exhibition – Spring 2021 which had some super benefits, including being able to interact with very good international speakers via Q&A. The breakout sessions covered valuable topics and the ability to visit the virtual booths in the exhibition hall and be able to download PDFs and video content, helped to discover more about the products currently on the market. There were some great opportunities to network with leaders from the global data centre industry and attendees were well looked after and were invited to engage with additional activities such as competing in the Leaderboard to win prizes.
Many thanks for the kind invitation to attend and the effort in delivering this event. I wish the team the best of luck and I wait with impatience for the next event.
DCME VIRTUAL International Conference & Exhibition
This virtual conference is a fantastic opportunity for both networking and learning. It has been so well presented in the virtual format making it similar to a real conference where networking is encouraged. The presenters are very knowledgeable and have a great way to share their knowledge with attendees. I would highly recommend anyone in the Data Centre industry to attend this conference.
Thank you to Caroline and the team at DCME for what proved to be an excellent Virtual Exhibition.
Some very interesting and varied topics covered and plenty of networking opportunities.
Very well laid out and easy to use.
Looking forward to the next event. Well done to all involved.
I have now experienced a number of virtual meeting platforms now and can honestly say that the platform used by the DATACENTRE.ME team and experience offered is by far the best yet.
This in addition to genuinely interesting, insightful and topical content made the recent DATACENTRE.ME virtual event extremely useful to attend.
I have attended several of the DATACENTRE.ME face to face networking events, back in the ‘good old days' when we could meet up in person and they were always most enjoyable. However, I was concerned about how this would translate to a virtual environment. The transition was amazing, a fantastic platform and some really good speakers and panels. The idea that the panel was pre-recorded was a smart move and the live Q&A after was always appreciated. Engagement via the gamification section ensured there was always something to do and get involved in. Looking forward to the next one on the 28th April!
Well done, Caroline and Team for putting on such a great event.
The virtual event format was one of the best aesthetically implemented in 2020. I thoroughly enjoyed navigating through the schedule of events. It was an excellent opportunity to meet with our community and get a perspective on advances in technology and challenges in our industry.
I am looking forward to attending in 2021.
Well done Caroline and DC.ME team for a superb Virtual Event.
Really interesting content from sponsors and speakers presented in a well-structured virtual arrangement over the 2 days. Although the DC.ME quarterly networking events are dearly missed this was an excellent and well thought out alternative to keep up collaboration and unity amongst our industry’s professionals whilst presenting new and interesting technological advancements.
Trying to navigate any business through this pandemic is no mean feat especially when your business heavily relies on social engagement and interaction. I commend Caroline and her team for a great effort in putting this together and look forward to the next event.
Congratulations to Caroline and the team at DATACENTRE.ME for a fantastic event that brought so many of us together in a virtual format that really enabled us to make up for the lack of networking and collaboration through 2020 so far. Some fantastic sessions that were very well facilitated and covered some really interesting topics.
Deerns were very happy to have a virtual booth at the event, which led to some great conversations with contacts old and new and we look forward to the next event.
I’ve been attending DC.ME events a good 5 years now between London & Dublin and they are always a great focal point to meet & network with those within the Data Centre | Mission Critical Industry and I have been lucky enough to meet such valuable supply chain partners from them to this day.
Unfortunately, with how 2020 has panned out with COVID19, a lot of such events have had to resort to virtual and online conferences; and I have attended many.
I wasn’t shocked with how well curated and set up DC.ME GOES VIRTUAL 2020 was with the efforts Caroline & the team go to with their usual quarterly physical events and very much look forward to the next instalment.
A great event, with lots of new and exciting technologies to look at!
As usual, Caroline and the team at DATCENTRE.ME managed to pull together all the best brains in the industry, all in one place to chat and learn from each other – this time in a virtual space. That is the epitome of ‘professionalism'! Amazing!
I was very impressed by how DC.ME had got the virtual conference all set up. Good format, clear to use & engaging.
The topics, presenters & exhibitors were all very relevant to the DC Market and the amount of useful/helpful material to take away was ideal.
Looking forward to next year either virtual or in person (fingers crossed!)
Being a regular at the London Data Centre events, I was amazed with the quality and professionalism of the DATACENTRE.ME virtual conference & exhibition provided.
It was easy to use and navigate through the agenda. The agenda was well thought out, informative and fun.
I can see this being the new “norm”. It brought interesting topics to the forefront and available to a new global audience.
The only thing missing was the drinks in the evening sadly, maybe Caroline needs to post out some beers beforehand next time. Ha ha ha.
But “hats off” to Caroline and team for such a professional dynamic virtual conference. I look forward to the next one with excitement.
Being that this year has scuppered just about any plans that any of us have had, I was slightly sceptical about a virtual DATACENTRE.ME event. Should have known Caroline and the team would have smashed it. Sat through a fair few of the relevant to me seminars which I found informative.
The only thing missing was the G&T!
Well done! Looking forward to the next one.
Congratulations to Caroline and all the DATACENTRE.ME team!
The DCME GOES VIRTUAL event was very successful and Rentaload was proud to be a part of it.
The virtual platform was great, the conference program very interesting and the chats very user-friendly.
Until we are able to attend the great DATACENTRE.ME networking events again, this is an excellent alternative.
I attended a number of the seminars/presentations held during the DCME GOES VIRTUAL conference. The topics were informative, well presented and the ability to attend virtually whilst still continuing my day job, made excellent sense. Look forward to more similar events until the world becomes normal again.
This was my first virtual conference. I was very impressed. Well organised by the team at DATACENTRE.ME. I attended a few seminars and presentations which I found interesting and informative.
Definitely recommended and will attend the next.
Thanks again for organising and a great event!
Great conference. I love the format and the layout. I'm under pressure this week so I’m hopping in and out, listening to the topics that are close to our business.
This was our first ‘virtual’ networking event, and while nothing can quite replicate the face-to-face nature of a traditional expo, this was the next best thing and actually exceeded our initial expectations.
We gained several solid leads over the two days and made plenty of new connections and contacts. While the broad range of informative seminars and CPD sessions compared favourably with anything you’d find at any major industry conference too.
Well done to Caroline, Ruth and the DC.ME team and we look forward to their next event!
DCME GOES VIRTUAL – Well it certainly did… Had a great 2 days online as Lead Sponsors of this great event. Some very interesting seminars and had plenty of visitors to our booth. Well done Caroline, Ruth & Team for a very well put together online conference. Looking forward to the next one…
This was a fantastic idea in these tough times and I was really impressed with the ease to navigate the exhibitors, chat rooms and the informative seminars during the 2 days.
The exhibition side was extremely well laid out making it feel like you were there in an exhibition hall looking at everyone stands peruse their stands and then chat with them.
Hopefully next time would see the return of face to face meetings but if not I would highly recommend and look forward to the next virtual event.
The DATACENTRE.ME events have been some of my favourite to attend recently. Caroline and her team always do a fantastic job to ensure that these are a productive networking forum…with a splash of fun! I have found that the guests at these events attend with the right intent – to make the most out of building their networks and are also welcoming to building new contacts – less cliques to navigate which is a hazard in the industry.
There are always a good mix of people (clients, contractors, consultants, suppliers, etc.) and I always walk away having connected with an array of individuals and gleaned knowledge from different aspects of the industry as well as having had a thoroughly enjoyable evening!
All the above is due, in no small part, to the hard work and attention to detail that Caroline and her team put into organising the events – they are constantly behind the scenes ensuring the evening is set up for the best interactions and cross pollination of their guests.
Thank you for another successful evening and I look forward to what the rest of the year has in store!
Thanks for organising last week’s event and I look forward to attending as many as possible next year. It is great to have someone (you) championing the cause for DC networking so we can keep in touch with old contacts and make some new ones along the way
I was fortunate enough to be invited by Riello UPS to attend the end user networking event on 10 July 2018. I enjoyed the great atmosphere and the mix of people – some of whom I already knew – plus many new ones, some of whom we are now looking to create new opportunities with. The event had over 150 people in attendance, ranging from big to small corporations, most of whom were end users and industry consultants. The only manufacturers and vendors present were the event and website sponsors. Conversation was focused on business but we had a good laugh too which made the atmosphere very relaxed.
After my enjoyable experience at the event, I strongly believe that anyone who is looking to create leads and get in touch with professionals in Data Centre Industry, DATACENTRE.ME is the best step to take. I would like to thank Caroline and the DCME team for their efforts and their welcoming approach. Carry on doing what you do best!
Another successful DATACENTRE.ME networking event from Caroline and her team. All of these events are very well attended by decision makers and influencers from all business sectors, who rely on the quality of services and solutions from the sponsors, whose technologies occupy the data centre facilities that their businesses utilise.
The social atmosphere makes meeting new business connections and strengthening existing relationships easy and convivial. The effort and attention to detail by Caroline and her team, from badge to buffet, is clearly evident in the calibre of attendees and the constantly high attendance rate, which is further supported by the on-going commitment of relevant and innovative sponsors.
For me, DATACENTRE.ME is a must attend event each quarter, it’s an opportunity to network face to face which is difficult to achieve with LinkedIn and other social media platforms! At each event there is an ideal opportunity to meet new industry professionals, re-engage with existing sector contacts and peers and share best practice throughout the industry. To have exposure to developing products and services that underpin the multi-tenanted data centre owner/operator proposition (via the various sponsor companies) is extremely useful too. Each event also offers other significant benefits via several sources; we have the opportunity to leverage the partnership and collaborative go to market options with like-minded data centre operators & MSPs whilst also benefiting significantly from the opportunity of being introduced to organisations with specific data centre requirements.
We decided to sponsor the DATACENTRE.ME Charity Christmas Party this year because we believed this would enable us to make new connections within the data centre industry and we were not disappointed. We would recommend any business working within this sector to get on board with DATACENTRE.ME!
I wouldn’t recommend that everyone flies into London the night before and register the next morning, we would all drive you crazy, which you must be close to with all the work that goes into the preparation and the work afterwards. Many thanks again, I will plan my next trip around your events.
This was my second DATACENTRE.ME event and as before the room was full of my industry peers and suppliers in a very cordial atmosphere with great food and drink.
When socialising, the data centre and hosting fraternity are a very friendly bunch, happy to discuss their challenges and successes and we all benefit from each other’s experiences.
Dotted around the edges were a chosen few suppliers who were sponsoring the event and happy to bring us up to speed on the latest technologies.
Yes a great networking and knowledge sharing industry event all done and dusted in the early evening so it did not eat into the business day.
Caroline and Team. I wanted to write to say thank you for a great event on Tuesday. Everything was brilliant. Also, I wanted to say that your questionnaire idea was quite innovative.
I was pretty sceptical, at first, but the questionnaire and the prospect of an attractive prize to the winner forced me to talk to some of the sponsors that otherwise would have not spoken to. There were a number of very positive, and unexpected outcomes in these conversations with your sponsors which could produce good results for all involved.
Well done on taking the risk of putting the questionaire together and to promoting it in a clever way. Keep up the terrific work on behalf of the DC Industry.
For a few years we have attended and sponsored a number of the DATACENTRE.ME networking events and more recently signed up to become Premier Elite Sponsors of the website.
This decision was taken as testament to the organisation and visibility that both the networking events and website provide Bouygues E&S to both clients and our supply chain partners.
We look forward to many more opportunities in the coming year that the close relationship with the team will bring.
I have attended many of the events that Caroline and her amazing DATACENTRE.ME team provide, and they continue to grow from strength to strength. There is a perfect mix of peers to ensure your evening is maximised for both relaxed networking or catching up with colleagues we are always too busy to keep in contact with! The venues selected for these events are always ideally suited, friendly and not stuffy in any way and the food is pitched just right. These events are always professionally organised and the DATACENTRE.ME team are like swans (you know they have worked tirelessly to make sure everyone has an enjoyable time, but this is achieved in a calm and graceful way). These are superb events and are a fixture in my calendar now.
As a relative newcomer to the datacentre industry I found the DATACENTRE.ME Event relaxed and welcoming. I was greeted warmly and found there to be a friendly, inclusive atmosphere. The atmosphere made it easy for me to make some really useful connections with people who I may not otherwise have been able to meet. The venue was great and was well suited. I was pleased with the mix of sponsors, some I have found particularly useful. I look forward to attending further events and building upon this experience.
Thanks for a great event last night with lots of great networking and some good industry tech information.
As I turned up on my own, it was wonderful to receive such a warm welcome from you at the door, more like what I would expect from a long-term friend or colleague. Your sponsors were fabulous at sharing information, which made it a really comfortable networking event. I went to your event in the hope of achieving three things:
* Keeping up to date with the latest technology and smart thinking in Data Centres
* Expanding my network of contacts in the Data Centre arena
* Having some fun
Your event nailed all three perfectly!
Well done. Thanks again and get me on the list for the next event please.
Hi Caroline, just a quick note to say a big thank you to you and your team on hosting a truly wonderful event this evening. Tonight has been a very rewarding and provided a fantastic opportunity to develop a network of like-minded individuals. I look forward to catching up soon and please pass on a big well done to your team as their effort was duly appreciated.
As an invitee to the July Data Centre Operations DATACENTRE.ME event I would like to extend my thanks to Caroline and the team. What a great venue and lovely food and drinks not to mention the main event! I met some new and useful data centre industry contacts, what a good mix of attendees.
As always, the evening was well organised by Caroline and the team. Nothing was taken to chance with even the football shown on a big screen.”
DATACENTRE.ME events have proven to be a great way to build a personal network with key influencers in the data centre industry.
Our sponsorship has been an important step in helping Durata to establish itself as a leading power and cooling design and installation service provider for data centres and edge computing facilities.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for arranging another great networking function last night. I have now attended the last two and found both very beneficial in terms of networking, meeting new and past peers and enhancing my knowledge base. I look forward to attending the next function
Another fantastic event. The attendees are forever growing and it is great for our sector to come together like this on a quarterly basis.
Keep up the good work Caroline and team and see you at the next meeting!
All the best
The networking event was wonderfully informal, friendly and most importantly very useful. It is no wonder when you select the right topic and combine it with the above you have successful events. I’m looking forward to the next one
Thank you for inviting me to your do last night. I made some interesting contacts which I intend to write to presently. Also, I had good conversations with the product sellers and found that very rewarding too. It’s always good to keep up with developments.
