London/Copenhagen, 30 May 2018 – The fourth edition of the annual Datacloud Nordic Regional Summit will take place this year in Copenhagen on November 20th.

With an anticipated audience of more than 500 executives from across the region and internationally, the event sustains its focus on the distinct advantages of significant renewable energy availability, sustainable space and connectivity.

Denmark has been successful recently in winning hyperscale developments primarily for content distribution in Europe which is also expected to attract an eco-system of foreign enterprises for third party hosting, who might previously have used the UK or the Netherlands as their European hub location.

In 2017 Denmark was ranked the world’s number one country in the green energy transition – marking the second time Denmark topped the list.

The local PSO tax on electricity is to be reduced in stages and is to be eliminated by 2021. The elimination of the tax will allow Denmark to compete more effectively with other Nordic Countries, where energy tax rates for Data Centres has already been reduced.

Director of Invest in Denmark Steen Hommel is thrilled: “Copenhagen is looking forward to welcoming Datacloud Nordic and to showcasing the unique value propositions of Denmark. Denmark is a green, very cost and energy efficient location for data centres, as well as a connectivity hub with direct high capacity fibre cables to the US, UK/Ireland, Central Europe and the other Nordic countries.”

 “Datacloud Nordic being held in Copenhagen this year, is a testament to the massive growth the industry is seeing in Denmark and we welcome the opportunity to work with BroadGroup for the success of the event,” commented Henrik Hansen, Director, Danish Data Center Industry. “We are expecting the event to be a gathering of the Nordic and international data center community, creating synergies for new learnings and new business development. It’s also s great opportunity for Danish companies to showcase their expertise in energy-efficient, economic and green solutions.”

“Having held the event in both Sweden and Norway, it is very timely to host the next summit in the great city of Copenhagen,” said John Vather, head of marketing at BroadGroup, the event researchers and organizers. “New subsea fibre cables connecting the west coast of Denmark to the US, the UK and Ireland and to the Netherlands will further enhance Denmark’s position as a Northern European digital hub where we are very excited to locate the 2018 event.”

Datacloud is recognized as the leading summit and congress series for networking and deal making in data centre, cloud, and edge businesses, their enterprise customers and investors.

The event will be held at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in central Copenhagen.
