HostingCon Conference Promises to Heat Up Miami

by: Bryon Turcotte  /  March 12, 2014


"_Turn Up the Heat_" will be the theme of this year's HostingCon, the annual conference and trade show dedicated to the web hosting and cloud industry. The report indicates that this year's conference, to be held in Miami, Florida from June 16-18, promises to accelerate "_ideas and insights into innovation, strategic vision, and new revenue opportunities._"

Philbert Shih, the program director for the conference, was quoted in the article to say, "The hosting and cloud industry continues to grow and mature, and the sector has never been healthier. _But at the same time, the industry is undergoing some significant change. Hosters have never before faced such intense competition. 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 an impact._"

The article indicates that this conference is "the only North-American event specifically created for hosting and cloud providers." The conference organizers also promote this event as an "_unbiased platform for presenting the best networking, thought leadership, non-sponsored education, and value-added revenue solutions_, "according to the article. The article states that approximately "_1,900 hosting and cloud provider decision-makers from more than 34 countries_" are expected to be in attendance for this event.
