DCME Buyer / Specifier Networking Event – Autumn 2024
DATACENTRE.ME (DCME) buyer / specifier events are extremely unique because, unlike some of the large exhibitions & conferences, our events are small, personable affairs that encourage & nurture the relationship-building aspect of business as opposed to a “hard sell”.
A selection of companies that supply the Data Centre industry with innovative products & services are invited to sponsor. We then invite high level “Buyers & Specifiers” within the Data Centre industry to join us, free of charge, as our guests. This allows the two sides to meet up, after a long day in the office or meetings, for a relaxed evening of informal networking over complimentary drinks & nibbles.
There are no presentations to sit though at DCME events. On the contrary, our events are evenings of pure networking where the vendor presence is limited, working relationships are forged and business will hopefully follow. What can we say other than it's a hugely successful formula that sponsors & guests alike very much enjoy & value!
The DCME Team has been running successful events of this nature since 2013, You can find links & information regarding all of our future & past events on our events page here. We look forward to welcoming you to one or more of our events very soon 🙂
