?I've been working in the technology industry for 25 years and I think it's absolutely crucial for technology guys to absorb new knowledge and understand the current trends ? that's why I have attended this show for three years and my colleagues come too! The Women in Tech panel impressed me the most and I'm so glad that I didn't miss that fantastic discussion!? - Asha Hemrajani, Member of Board of Directors, ICANN

For the conference sessions, there are so many topics to choose from with such variety.? - Alex Lay, Manager, Information Systems, Olympus
?Data Centre World is much better than any other trade shows I have been to. Its variety and quality have definitely outdone any similar exhibition which offer comparatively small scale seminar programmes.

I am excited about the Data Centre World Hong Kong series.? - Zulkarnaen Bin Zainal Abidin, Regional Data Centre Engineer, AXA Technologies Shared Services Singapore
