World Hosting Days is rebranding to CloudFest. CloudFest 2018 will be held March 10-16, in Rust Germany.
“Our industry is evolving at a blistering pace. The cloud is not only about bandwidth, storage, or connectivity anymore but includes platforms delivering a full spectrum of services at the foundation of all communication and data transfer around the world. It touches everything—IoT, autonomous driving, air traffic control, finances, blockchain, AI, and even dating.
In the beginning, WHD.global was created to connect hosters. Today VARs, system integrators, telecoms and ISPs, ISVs, registrars, registries, Fortune 1000s, corporate IT teams, and MSPs represent the majority of our global audience. Even traditional hosters now define themselves as cloud service providers. We remain committed to our hosting and infrastructure roots but it is time for WHD to grow and reflect our changing world.
Welcome to CloudFest 2018!
CloudFest 2018 is the perfect evolution of WHD.global, offering more innovations, exhibits, learning, networking, and—of course—more fun. As you can see from Soeren’s video above, we are seriously committed to growing our flagship, global event in the years ahead, and being a tad cheeky along the way.
We feel confident that you, your colleagues, your partners, and your business will benefit from our expanded event, it’s bigger, bolder program.”
World Hosting Days (now CloudFest) is the owner of NamesCon that is coming up in January in Las Vegas. Both conferences are owned by GoDaddy.
Cloudfest rolls off the tongue easier than World Hosting Days, for sure. I think it was a good move to rebrand shorter. 🙂
