Brexit and What This Means to the UK DC Market… Findings from the techUK Report

Date: , Track: , Location:

Opinion is divided over whether Brexit signals the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning for the UK data centre sector.  In reality, leaving the EU presents us with both challenges and opportunities and as a sector it is essential that we understand the implications for operators, customers and the supply chain.  We must also be crystal clear about our policy priorities: what we need government to do in the negotiating process and what they can do more broadly to support the sector.   Emma will provide an overview of the implications and an update on progress in our policy dialogue with government.
