Now in its tenth year, DataCentres Ireland, which will be held in the RDS on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 of November, will bring together everyone involved in the dynamic and fast-growing Irish data sector.

In addition to the exhibition floor with more than 100 exhibitors, the free to attend event’s two discussion streams: strategy and operations, will include panel discussions on a range of topics including future trends, sustainable energy, and power; as well as a wide range of technical topics, from upgrading legacy technologies to heat management and standby generation.

Driven by the pandemic, the demand on Data Centres has been greater than ever, as they underpin the digital infrastructure we have all used when working from home or remotely educating our children. Whether it is emails, or meetings via Zoom, Teams, WhatsApp, they are all Data Centre-driven applications, as are all our social media platforms.

Data Centres are expanding in their role as the power behind Ireland’s pitch as Europe’s primary tech hub and an expanding financial centre.

Investment in Data Centres has already reached €1.3 billion on an annual basis and the construction of new data centres will generate more than €4.5 billion in inward investment for Ireland by 2025, according to the latest industry update report from Host in Ireland, in association with Bitpower.

DataCentres Ireland will also discuss the real energy, power and supply issues, as Data Centres have a significant role to play in enabling more grid flexibility which is needed to assist Ireland in achieving green/renewable energy targets.

DataCentres Ireland 2021 will be held in the RDS on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 November, and entry is free for registered visitors.
