Platform aims to enable access and conversations between market players to achieve productive outcomes.
We research and invite influencers and participants from organisations across the incredible digital infrastructure ecosystem - fibre, subsea cables, landing stations, data centers, edge facilities, hyperscales, metaverse, mobile networks, finance and investment, real estate, the site selection and negotiator segment and the innovators and providers of sustainable energy resources that underpins the entire fabric.
We also have established a new platform for enterprises to engage and interact with the providers of the infrastructure they need to transform their organisations aligned with ESG goals.
Our services portfolio includes a series of summits, conferences and awards across geographies of interest, private and custom events for organisations and promotional events for government, regional agencies and digital parks attracting inward investment.
The agenda for Platform will include a strong focus on the provision of green renewable energy using current and emerging technologies and its security both of which are paramount to the continued success of our digital society.
Given the entire eco system for the provision, demand and consumption of digital resources is increasingly regulated we will monitor and reflect in programmes how that changes and impacts in the coming years.
Designed to celebrate the exceptional in the digital infrastructure industry, Platform is launching a new Celebration of Industry Peers as part of both the Africa and the Global events.
The Celebration is designed to elevate recognition of the achievement, talent, range and diversity of people, ingenuity in investment and customer success in services across businesses engaged in the digital infrastructure industry sector.
As a new innovation to our events the Celebration of Industry Peers is a step change away from more traditional formats that have been used until now. The process for these accolades will be open and transparent and presented in a more exciting and informal setting.
The company will rely on a new advisory council of industry peers to manage the process for the 2023 Africa and 2023 Global accolades.
The digital infrastructure industry has truly come of age, and the Platform Celebration of Industry Peers will uniquely reflect its global importance.
Platform Markets Consulting, a new division of Platform Markets Group aims to provide a cogent interpretation of market developments based on a mix of qualitative and quantitative research and evaluation.
