Advancing Data Center Construction 2023

November 6, 2023 @ 9:00 am - November 8, 2023 @ 3:30 pm UTC-6


The pressure for increasing data center capacity shows no signs of abating, with current industry forecasts suggesting that the market will continue to grow at an average of 12 to 14 percent per year in the coming years. Therefore, the AEC ecosystem needs to find new ways to increase their capacity to meet this demand, navigating ongoing supply-chain disruption, growing labor shortages, and increased demands for sustainability and technological complexity at unprecedented scales.

The result? An ever more crowded market that requires designers and contractors to evolve their service offerings, engage in cross-industry cooperation, deepen their understanding of new technologies and better demonstrate their value as a partner to clients to win in this demanding environment.

That’s why Advancing Data Center Construction will return for the 4th edition in 2023 to unite 500+ Owners, Contractors, Trade Partners and Designers to share emerging best practices transforming the end-to-end design and construction of the nation’s most sustainable, innovative mission critical facilities. From overcoming supply chain disruption to discovering new technologies in liquid cooling and low-carbon materials, this is your best opportunity in 2023 to connect and learn from leading experts at the forefront of Data Center construction to position your firm as the partner of choice in an increasingly crowded market.
