Breaking news! On the 5th of September, 2018 at the Fairmont Hotel, Jakarta erupted and sent shock waves through the cloud and data center industries across APAC. Indonesia’s first all-inclusive ‘Indonesia Convention: Cloud and Datacenters convention’ convened by W.Media burst on to the scene generating some large seismic activity along the way. If this event could have been recorded on the Richter scale it would have been off the scale! This is where end-users, operators, system integrators, consultants & engineers gather.
With early expectations of 300 – 400 delegates, the convention far exceeded those expectations attracting with over 700 delegates in attendance. This follows on from the Singapore convention in July where we saw over 700 delegates in attendance as well.
The convention had a strong focus on the cloud environment targeting particularly security and technology directions in Indonesia. The successful format of the Singapore convention was continued here in Jakarta with a mix of presentations and moderated panels; a technology bench that went along the Apple-style of technology demonstration that ran throughout the day providing delegates the opportunity to interact more with sponsors at a more detailed level. There were lounges to facilitate networking among experts. And of course the expansive technology showcase hall featuring 20 sponsoring companies and organisations once again providing delegates with an extensive range of products and expertise to tap in to. The showcase featured cloud computing, data center outsourcing, connectivity, data center design and operation and energy efficiency – power & cooling.
