Global Players of the digitalisation industry have already relocated their Headquarters to Hattersheim am Main, more will follow. The city is on its way to becoming a Digital City. The advantages of the location are obvious: Hattersheim am Main is located in the immediate proximity of Frankfurt Airport and the A3, A5 and A66 motorways, but above all to the world's largest Internet Exchange Point, DE-CIX - with better power capacity and greater space availability than in the Frankfurt city area. In addition to the strategically favorable geographic location, the short official channels make Hattersheim an attractive location. The individual support provided to companies by the municipal business development department enables lean and flexible coordination processes and a well-networked cooperation.
As a member of the GERMAN DATACENTER ASSOCIATION’s board of directors I am happy to be able to contribute to the improvement of the industry’s public perception. This way new technologies and market trends can reach and find their place in society easier and faster. I want to actively participate in the exchange and setup of the network/association in the industry and support productive and profitable dialogue and cooperation. At the same time, we, as the City of Hattersheim am Main, are happy to profit as a member from the GERMAN DATACENTER ASSOCIATION’s long standing expertise in different areas and sectors. As a location for datacenter operators and various companies from the digital industry we are on our way to becoming a ‘smart city’ and are convinced that the exchange of experiences always constitutes an important step towards the future.
