DLA Piper and Inframation would like to invite you to a special industry seminar to launch the results of research commissioned on Europe's data centre infrastructure.

Cloud computing, AI and big data have led to the inexorable rise of the data centre, and investors are optimistic about the prospects for European data centres, with transactions predicted to hit EUR2 billion by the end of 2019.

The new research to be released at the event, will show the extent to which the value of European data centres is increasing as data becomes a central component of the digital economy. A panel of industry experts will digest the key findings of our market intelligence and reveal how they will capture opportunities in the sector.

Discussion points will include:

• Why the overall value of investment going into Europe’s data centre infrastructure is expected to increase over the next 24 months.

• How debt and equity investors are pursuing divergent investment approaches, the drivers for gaining exposure across the capital structure and why strategies may differ.

• What the challenges for equity investors finding attractive assets are, including a reluctance by operators to dilute control, as well as how funds are accessing greenfield opportunities through sale and leaseback structures.

• Which new geographies and technologies are on the radar for data centre investors.
