Exploring Regional Cloud Infrastructure Policies at HostingCon Europe 2016

Web hosting and cloud decision makers from across the continent and around the world will gather at the third annual HostingCon Europe conference and trade show on October 11 and 12 at the Passenger Terminal in Amsterdam to network, learn, and exhibit.

For 2016 there will be six educational sessions each in the Building Business and Trends and Technology tracks, as well as five exhibitor workshops and a keynote address both days. Among the sessions already unveiled are several that address politics, law, and regulation, which are currently causing uncertainty in several areas for European technology companies.

Notable among those is the Wednesday afternoon Trends and Technology session dedicated to broadening industry knowledge of European cloud infrastructure service providers’ trade association CISPE. OVH VP for Development and Public Affairs Alban Schmutz will present CISPE’s mandate and projects, including its privacy Code of Conduct for Infrastructure Service Providers, the European single cloud market, and how to correct the misperceptions of policy makers about IaaS issues.

Schmutz is a veteran of the policy formation process from several different angles, including playing a key role in the development of the French government’s cloud plan. He is also an engaging and knowledgeable public speaker.

Speakers and panelists from cloud and hosting providers, as well as academics, lawyers, venture capitalists, and more will present the necessary perspectives to generate business insights and succeed in the fast-growing, yet challenging service provider market.

The next release of information about the educational sessions is about to drop, and will reveal more perspectives industry leaders will share at HostingCon Europe. All Access Passes are now available for the Early Bird rate of €80, providing entrance to all educational sessions, official networking events, meals, and the floor of Exhibit Hall.
