Multi-Chapter Regional Conference

Now in its second year since the pandemic hiatus, six 7x24 Exchange chapters joined forces to host a Muti-Chapter Regional Conference in Atlantic City at the Borgata Hotel, Oct 18-19. Led by Metro NY and Greater Philadelphia with support from New England, DC/NOVA, Empire State, and Western NY, this regional event brought an opportunity for attendees to experience 7x24 Exchange beyond their local Chapters. The event kicked off Wednesday night with a networking reception hosted at the MGM's indoor pool. Thursday was a full day of speakers, panels, group meals, and networking. The day kicked off with the first keynote session by McKinsey who presented highlights from their paper "Investing in the Rising Data Center Economy." The morning followed with two panels for site selection and end user experiences with AI. After a networking lunch break, the second keynote with Michael Piccininni from Dell Technologies shared insights into hardware in the data center industry. The day wrapped up with a panel on Cooling Technologies, a chapter leadership roundtable, dedicated time to visit the sponsoring companies' tables, and a closing reception. Thank you to all of the sponsors who made this event happy. Plans will be underway soon for 2024!
