DICE Southeast | Data Center Investment Conference & Expo, Southeast

Atlanta is experiencing a data center demand resurgence over the past 18 months, as established players continue to grow their presence and new players hone in on Atlanta for their Southeast expansion.

In the first half of 2017 alone, investors poured $18.2B into data center real estate, double the amount invested in 2016. 

With over $45B invested in the sector over the past five years, private capital and institutional investors entering the space are becoming savvier in their investments.

5. As absorption rates returned to normal after the first half of 2017, what trends will continue in the market?
