IMN: Data center growth has continued throughout the recession with demand doubling every two years (US)

A recent survey conducted by Information Management Network (IMN), global organizers of institutional finance and investment conferences, had nothing but positive feedback from their attendees about their recent data center conference.

"We were quite happy with the conference; there were good comments from the whole team that attended. The venue, organization, and attendees were all first rate and met or exceeded our expectations," said Jacob Naeb, Senior Project Manager at Arup.

Data centers are an asset class that investors need to seriously consider for their investment portfolio. While the opportunities in the current real estate market are froth with currency issues, tranche warfare, extend and pretend and trophy buildings at nosebleed valuations, and the rest of the investment market is worrying about a double dip, data center growth has continued throughout the recession with demand doubling every two years. Many believe this is the one place where 20% returns are still possible.

IMN will be hosting its European Financing, Investing & Real Estate Development Data Center forum in London, April 24-25 for senior data center executives, tenants, real estate investors, venture capitalists and service providers.
