In addition to networking, great food, and company, the conference also hosted 200 vendors showcasing the latest hardware, software, and services.

On Sunday April 19th, ID developed a series of panels for Data Center World’s premium day, a day of talks and panels for attendees who
decided to come a day early.

Dennis Julian, a Principal at ID, gave an informative, interactive discussion at his panel, “Design-Starting Correctly is Ending Correctly!” Dennis gave a comprehensive presentation on the do's and don'ts of data center design, which addressed questions such as: who and what does it takes to plan the ideal data center? What Information should you have before beginning a design? 

Unlike traditional lectures and panels, the sessions ran as peer-to-peer interactive discussions that allowed the presenters to address audience questions while also giving an informative presentation. Dennis did a fantastic job interacting with the audience and the overall conference was a huge success for both AFCOM and ID. Great work everyone!
