In this episode, Nabeel Mahmood and Phil Koblence sit down with Adam Knobloch, Global Director, Data Centers at Bisnow. Adam has been with Bisnow for almost six years, where he currently leads the company’s global Data Center & Cloud IT event platform strategy.
You may be familiar with the Datacenter Investment Conference & Expo (DICE) Series, which is Bisnow’s regional series covering all of the major markets in the industry, aiming to bridge the gap between data center real estate and the technology infrastructure that supports it.
Nabeel asks Adam what may be next for the event series,
“I'm taking a step back from international to do more in the US and focus on that for this year. But I would love to expand to other markets, both in the US and elsewhere around the world.”
Adam and his team had to learn very quickly how to pivot when the pandemic hit. Phil asks how they made it through those times when no one was able to meet in person for events,
“We had to try whatever we could do to still support our clients and partners and help them connect, inform, and connect with the industry about what they're doing, and still help the industry grow.”
To wrap up this episode, Nabeel asks Adam to think about what he would tell his younger self if he could,
“There are so many ways to get into this industry - and number one, people in this industry are phenomenal and interesting. What they're doing is required for society to grow, and even to sustain itself as we like it.”
