"If you're responsible for a critical facility and everything in it, this is the conference for you." — Brian Rientz, Technical Facilities Manager, Midco

Critical Facilities Summit is an exclusive gathering of senior-level professionals involved in the design, construction, management and operations of data centers, healthcare facilities, financial institutions, universities, government, and other mission critical facilities. It is the only event of its kind examining data center and mission critical issues from the FM and design/build perspectives. This annual conference and expo brings together hundreds of forward thinking professionals to discuss and debate how to improve the efficiency, reliability and performance of mission critical facilities.
