Imago Techmedia, the organisation behind IP EXPO, has announced that the 2014 event will have two new co-located events - Data Centre Expo and Cyber Security Expo.

In its continued “drive to become Europe’s leading IT event," the expanded IP EXPO will relocate to ExCeL London to accommodate a wider audience and offer even more relevant content and expert commentary.

The events will further develop themes to bring a wider scope to IP EXPO. “These new events ensure that we are bringing our existing audience a wider range of technologies and also attracting new visitors, all the while developing the IP EXPO brand into Europe’s largest enterprise IT show,” said Bill Hammond, IP EXPO’s event director.

Data Centre Expo will examine the core areas of hosting, colocation, networks and connectivity, cloud, storage, facilities and infrastructure. The event has been developed to build conversation around the most topical issues for data centre owners, operators and facility managers.

Cyber Security EXPO, meanwhile, will focus on the securing of information with reference to key topics including mobility, cloud and social interaction within the modern enterprise.

The security event will feature a dedicated conference, as well as four theatres and substantial exhibition space. Major and current trends that will be addressed include Internet and network security, fighting cybercrime, advanced analytics, identity and privacy protection, cloud security and governance, and mobile device management.

“With cloud and consumerisation driving the next wave of IT transformation, the data centre has embraced its role as a strategic asset that provides a platform for innovation and competitive advantage,” said Duncan Kirk, divisional director of IP EXPO. “Bringing together these new technologies under one roof will attract more audiences to IP EXPO Europe and give visitors the chance to see the latest trends in one place.”

Hammond added: “The Enterprise Security event is especially relevant considering disruptive technologies, such as cloud, mobile, BYOD and social media are pushing data and function closer to the user. This means the challenge has now moved on to address the security of corporate data and networks.”
