Uniting the Nations of Cloud

The leaders of the internet infrastructure industry gather at CloudFest not just as fellow businesspeople, but as a community—even a family. More than any other, the CloudFest community shares a unique perspective of the digital world and how it affects the day-to-day lives of everyone on the planet.

So, for 2024, our key theme is Uniting the Nations of Cloud. We’ll explore this main theme through subthemes that explore cybersecurity, AI, value-added services, and more.

Meet our Top-Tier Partners for 2024

CloudFest is only possible thanks to our fantastic partners, who love creating memorable experiences as much as we do.

Always Keep Growing at CloudFest

Whether you’re a small, large, or hyperscale operation—or even a startup—you’ll find exceptional value in attending CloudFest. Because you don’t just want to grow: you want to grow in the right ways. Our main-stage keynotes and panel discussions will inform and inspire you, and our CloudFest Academy workshop series will help you stay current with the latest tools and techniques in service delivery.

Brand Building

All eyes are on you at CloudFest! With over 8,000 internet infrastructure professionals in attendance, you can take full advantage of an engaged crowd to help establish your reputation within the global marketplace.

Connecting with Decision-Makers

One of CloudFest’s most exceptional features is our ability to put you in front of the Who’s Who of the industry. With a week of events and activities attended by some of the Cloud’s key influencers and purchasers, our festival offers your company many opportunities to make new connections and forge strategic alliances.

Market Intelligence

Thanks to our week-long series of compelling presentations and workshops, coupled with a trade show floor teeming with the latest products and solutions, your ability to gain a keen understanding of the market and its overall dynamics is second to none when you take part in our festival.

Brand Differentiation

Branding is a significant element associated with a businesses’ success, and CloudFest offers the most effective platform to reach this objective. Differentiate yourself from your competitors, promote your company’s message, and maximize your overall marketing efforts during a week-long event dedicated to your success.

Product/Service Showcase

CloudFest is the place to reinforce the role you play as an innovator in the global market. With such a captive audience of attendees, what better venue to debut a new product or service than in front of an engaged crowd of professionals hungry for insights into your company and its offerings?

Face-Time

Getting to across the table from old, new, and potential customers can often prove next to impossible. CloudFest breaks down those barriers by giving you an environment founded on connecting with your target audience: re-establish old relationships and ignite new ones here!

New Partner Connections

Progressive brands understand the doors open to them by working with hyperscalers in this new, converged space—and our large-scale festival is your access point to the full range of companies who are eager to explore these opportunities.

Research

Stay intimately connected to the market by seeing first-hand what new products and services are available and in turn, better understand the revenue streams that new channel partners can potentially fill. Research and surveillance keep your company ahead of the competition.

High-Level Exposure

Hyperscalers join CloudFest at a premium level, and get critical touchpoints to showcase the value their operations offer. An exhibition space, presentation time in our largest forum, a seat at the table during one of our panel discussions, and the ability to conduct a boot-camp deep dive into your operations puts you front and center of a captive and eager audience.

Build Your Brand

Get Cloud-famous by meeting and associating with the most influential decision-makers in the internet infrastructure industry. Make sure your brand is both well-known and taken seriously.

Growth Hacking

Get immediate face-time with the large-scale—and hyperscale—service providers and platforms that can bring you new partners as well as an exponential number of new customers.

Hire Better People

The CloudFest Hackathon attracts some of the most skilled and creative developers, UX experts, and designers working in the Cloud. These specialized professionals can be hard to meet—but it’s easy at CloudFest.

Still, have Questions?

Just ask us!

(And yes, you will be able to ride the roller coasters at Europa-Park!)
