Critical Facilities Summit has announced that its 2017 Summit will be held in Minneapolis, MN on October 23-25, 2017. The Critical Facilities Summit is dedicated to optimizing data center and mission critical environments by keeping attendees up to date on new trends in the industry.

Expanding its scope to a new mission critical corridor in 2017, the Critical Facilities Summit is bringing its show to Minneapolis due to the city’s position as an emerging market for data center, life sciences, and other critical facilities activity. Several key reasons identify Minneapolis as a notable location for critical facilities, both in the present and beyond:

  • Home to 17 Fortune 500 company headquarters

  • Part of a Midwest region that houses enterprise data centers for Facebook, Google and Microsoft

  • A leading life science marketplace located in the “Medical Alley” between Rochester and Duluth

  • Attractive tax incentives and rebates for colocation facilities

“We’re excited to enter new markets and expand our reach by bringing the 2017 Critical Facilities Summit to Minnesota,” said Wendy Dietzler, vice president, Education & Conferencing at Trade Press Media Group. “The 2017 Summit will bring its unparalleled content and resources to a new market as data center and critical facility activity grows in the Minneapolis/St. Paul region. Our commitment to facilitating educational and networking opportunities for the mission critical community remains strong as the industry evolves to meet rising demand from innovations in cloud technology.”

Critical Facilities Summit will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center, located at 1301 2nd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55403. Sign up to receive updates about the show and registration.
