Considering the location for your next
data center?

Frankfurt has become the go-to destination for the data center industry.  As Europe’s largest economy and a gateway to the EU, Germany is among the most attractive markets for FDI. Frankfurt is also a hub for the digital economy – home to the world’s largest internet exchange, high-capacity power infrastructure, and high standards of data protection.

Join us for a 2 hour fireside chat followed by a networking session over wine and cheese.  Our panel will discuss the investment climate and market opportunities in Frankfurt, as well as the development, design, and  legal issues to consider when setting up a data center. 

Our panel will include:

Linhard Stepf,
President of FrankfurtRheinMain

Frank Zachmann,
International Frankfurt Business Ambassador, Chairman of Digital Hub FrankfurtRheinMain

Frank Langer,
Managing Director, Bennbrooke

Christoph Papenheim,
Corporate Partner, Dentons Frankfurt

The event will be hosted by Dentons in cooperation with FrankfurtRheinMain, the inward investment agency of the Frankfurt region, and Bennbrooke, a Frankfurt-based data center development company.
