Combined, iNET Interactive will provide AFCOM access to the resources of a larger organization and the added online expertise to continue fulfilling its mission serving the data center industry and its more than 4,500 members.

“Becoming a member of the iNET Interactive family is a milestone for AFCOM as it expands the breadth and depth of our services,” said Yaoz. “Both my team and I will remain deeply involved with our current services and conferences, but we also look forward to rolling out enhanced offerings through iNET Interactive’s leadership. I am confident that iNET Interactive will continue to grow and develop AFCOM with the same passion and commitment that has driven this organization for thirty-plus years.”
