Following a huge amount of uncertainty surrounding COVID restrictions this year, we are extremely excited to confirm that we will indeed be hosting this year’s DATACENTRE.ME (DCME) Charity “Christmas Kick-Off” Party on Wednesday 24th November from 5pm 'til late in central London EC1!

We have been persuaded to change our minds quite simply due to the number of sponsors & end user customers who have been literally begging us to run this event as they just couldn’t bear the thought of another year without the increasingly famous DCME Charity “Christmas Kick-Off” Party!

After a huge amount of deliberation, we feel confident that we are able to run this event safely as we have secured full venue hire of a very large central London venue that can hold up to 900 people and we will continue with the COVID-safe measures that were implemented at our recent return to face to face event which were extremely well-received and highly appreciated by all in attendance.  Suffice to say, we are relying on everyone’s support more than ever, especially as I’m sure everyone will appreciate that the costs of running an event of this size & nature have risen exponentially. 

The DCME Charity “Christmas Kick-Off Party” has become a cornerstone in the Industry's seasonal calendar and this will be the fifth year that we will have hosted this annual event (with a break in Winter 2020 thanks to COVID of course!)

This is not one of our usual end user networking events – it is an industry party, so a great opportunity for everyone to come together, regardless of who they work for or what their job title is, within the world of data centres.

We have secured exclusive hire of a fantastic venue in central London EC1 that holds up to 1,000 people.  Full address details will be provided to all confirmed registrants.  Access to our event will be limited to circa 500 people and there will be a strict no ticket = no entry policy on the door.  Individual tickets will be available for purchase or, if you would like to secure 5 tickets or more, you can sign up as an event sponsor which will give you some online and on-site branding along with discounted ticket prices!

Unlike our quarterly end user networking events, we do not limit the competitive nature of our sponsors plus vendors & manufacturers may purchase tickets to attend, even if they are not DCME website sponsors or event sponsors.  Equally, no contact details will be shared with any of our event sponsors.

There will be seating available however there will be no officially assigned seating for our guests as this is a party with finger food as opposed to a sit down dinner.

Attire:  casual / business / party wear

Event Sponsors will be announced and added to this page in due course.  Bookmark this page to be kept updated 🙂

10% of all sponsorship and ticket revenue will be donated equally between our chosen charities post-event.  Our chosen charities for 2021 are: 

2021 Charities Combined
