Critical Infrastructure Summit to shine a light on regional data centres

The summit will take place at the Two Seasons Hotel in Dubai on 15 November

Data centres will be put in the spotlight at the forthcoming Critical Infrastructure Summit (CIS), the Big Project Middle East (BPME) editorial team has confirmed. The CIS will take place on 15 November at the Two Seasons Hotel in Dubai and will bring together key industry stakeholders from across the region.

According to a report published by Research and Markets, the Middle East data centre market is forecasted to grow from US $4.86bn in 2022 to $7.94bn in 2028 at a CAGR of 8.5%. The growth will be fuelled by smart city and 5G developments, increasing focus on digital transformation by businesses across sectors, and several other drivers.

“Data centres are the backbone of the digital world, with most modern digital transformed organisations being heavily reliant on them to achieve their objectives. Within the region, the data centre market is expected to continue growing at a steady pace in the coming years, and given their intensive requirements and the region’s focus on sustainable development and operations, the BPME editorial team felt the time was right to put the focus on these critical assets,” said Jason Saundalkar, Head of Content at BPME.

In addition to data centres, the CIS will also be putting the region’s more traditional infrastructure into focus. Through panel discussions and presentations, the summit will shine a light on airports and seaports, in addition to highlighting urban mobility and the challenges that have to be addressed.
