Five online events in 2021 promise a qualified exchange of a top-class audience on explosive topics that are currently moving the data center industry. The GDA Net[t]work Talks are an excellent opportunity for companies to reach a new audience in a relevant environment and raise awareness of their brand among an interested target group.

The GDA Net[t]work Lunches have established themselves - before Corona - as high-level networking events in the industry and have been very popular throughout Germany: they regularly featured a competent exchange of views among a professional audience on technology developments and industry trends. Various contact restrictions and the associated planning uncertainty made the relaxed get-together during the lunch break in 2020 impossible.

GDA sees the crisis as an opportunity and has concepted the GDA Net[t]work Talks, a series of five events, that will get to the bottom of current industry trends online.

The GDA Net[t]work Talk #3 on Sustainabilty will take place live in Frankfurt on Thursday, September 30.
