This is the team to keep moving the bar higher and higher.”

WorldHostingDays has been around since 2003 and was originally focused on the hosting industry. Over the years, attendees have come from a wider range of technology fields, and the hosting industry itself has needed to adopt a more robust array of technologies. WHD.global is now a global event for cloud services and internet infrastructure that features more than 120 presentations, with topics spanning the entire range of digital technology and culture, as well as 200 exhibitors.
WHD.global is a seven-day festival with more than 6,500 attendees, located at Germany’s largest theme park, Europa-Park. It’s the world’s largest event of its kind; in 2017 it celebrates its 13th year. The WHD.global 2017 event will be in Germany on March 25-31.
