Hosting and Cloud Providers Turn Up the Heat

Hosting and Cloud Providers Turn Up the Heat(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – HostingCon, the premier industry conference and trade show for hosting and cloud providers, today announced the theme for HostingCon 2014 in Miami, Florida — “Turn Up the Heat” by accelerating ideas and insights into innovation, strategic vision, and new revenue opportunities.

“The hosting and cloud industry continues to grow and mature and the sector has never been healthier,” said Philbert Shih, managing director of Structure Research and program director for HostingCon. “But at the same time, the industry is undergoing some significant change. Hosters have never before faced such intense competition and the likes of Google, Microsoft and especially Amazon, are increasingly making their presence felt in the competitive landscape. This has forced the entire industry to look for new ways to become more efficient, innovate, and drive new revenues. Complacency will leave laggards behind, and those who turn up the heat will continue to have impact.”

HostingCon is the only North-American event specifically created for hosting and cloud providers with an unbiased platform for presenting the best networking, thought leadership, non-sponsored education, and value-added revenue solutions. For 2014, the conference has organized its educational program to help hosts and cloud providers identify emerging trends and create new business opportunities to drive breakthrough growth. The conference program is broken into four tracks covering Marketing & Sales, Technology, Management, and Industry Trends — all focused on sketching a compelling business vision and a robust roadmap for the future.

Over 1,900 hosting and cloud provider decision makers from more than 34 countries are expected to attend HostingCon 2014 from June 16-18 in the high-energy destination of Miami Beach, Florida.

“HostingCon is a highly interactive learning and networking environment designed to identify new partnerships and build stronger relationships,” stated Kevin Gold, Conference Chair of HostingCon. “For HostingCon 2014, the team has put tremendous effort into integrating new ways to help attendees connect with peers and solution providers, in addition to a greater emphasis within the conference program on emerging trends and technology.”

HostingCon 2014 showcases an exhibit floor with more than 150 brands that provide solutions for hosting and cloud providers, including CloudFlare, Data Foundry, Interxion, Jelastic, HP, OnApp, Parallels, SolidFire, Arbor Networks, SoftLayer, MarketGoo, Symantec, TeleCity, McAfee, and Loaded Commerce. With an environment rich with thought leaders and deep with major industry brands, business executives and entrepreneurs attending HostingCon 2014 will have the opportunity to think broadly about the future, to identify with new business partners, connect with existing clients, and learn strategic insights to turn up the heat on their competitors.
