KickStart Europe 2020 expands to 1.000 attendees and adds ‘Edge’ as one of main topics

The Annual Digital Infrastructure Investment, Strategy & Networking Conference, held on January 27 & 28 in RAI Amsterdam focuses on the Data Center, Cloud, Connectivity ànd Edge ecosystems.


Digital Infrastructure has momentum; business is flourishing, demand for data and connectivity is growing and exciting technologies such as 5G, AI and ML are on the brink of becoming mainstream. Which places digital infrastructure for a dilemma; how to separate business from buzz? The KickStart Europe conference right at the start of the year provides the latest trends and connections to the right investments in the European digital infrastructure. The summit gives the expected 1.000 attendees a great KickStart of 2020.

The third edition of the Strategy & Networking Conference KickStart Europe will return to Amsterdam and to the RAI Convention Center at the beginning of 2020. Right in the heart of Europe, Amsterdam is easy to travel to, and the RAI Convention Center provides the summit with room to grow: around 1.000 C-level executives from over 20+ countries will attend the strategy and networking summit focused on European trends and investments in data centers, connectivity networks, cloud and the role edge plays in the ‘new’ colocation.

The KickStart Europe organization is very proud to already announce that before the official start of the campaign, 15 of our last-year partners will rejoin us at the 2020-conference.
