DCNC 2020 Charity Event Rescheduled for Spring 2020


In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, BACS along with our co-host STULZ Oceania have decided to reschedule the DCNC 2020 Charity Event, with support from platinum sponsor Grosvenor Engineering Group, charity sponsors Shred-X Secure Destruction and ICON and charities ASCCA and Black Dog Institute. We will keep you informed of the new date in Spring 2020 once it has been confirmed. In the meantime, watch for updates and join the conversation here.

This exclusive ticket-only event will take place for the 2nd year in a row at the iconic waterfront L'Aqua venue. Situated on the rooftop of Cockle Bay Wharf and only a moment’s walk to the CBD, L'Aqua is Sydney's most prestigious event venue for intimate events. L'Aqua offers uninterrupted views over Cockle Bay and Darling Harbour and an abundance of natural light through its floor to ceiling windows.

DCNC or Data Centre Networking Club is an opportunity to bring everyone in the industry together, in a relaxed environment, steering away from the traditional ‘trade-show’ style format to make valuable connections aside from a social media platform or email chain. Imagine 3-4 hours of networking with your industry peers! The first of its kind in Australia, DCNC provides an excellent chance to meet with new and existing clients and service providers. The key difference is that it's about meeting peers and other professionals to swap notes, to laugh with – sharing challenges and successes, in a room with many different co-location, enterprise, wholesale and managed service data centre providers.

In 2018, the inaugural DCNC event was held at the spectacular Palais Room at Luna Park. Through the generosity of platinum founding sponsor STULZ and charity founding sponsors Nilsen, PiTek, Grosvenor Engieering Group,Eziblank - IDC Solutions and Logical Building Automation, DCNC was able to donate to "The Smith Family" and "Australia Seniors Computer Clubs Association".

In 2019, BACS and Grosvenor Engineering Group joined forces as co-hosts. Platinum sponsor STULZ and charity sponsor PiTek came on-board again with newcomers Icon Co, Shred-X and DCD Group. We had 162 attendees representing 66 organisations. That’s 30% more people and 10 new companies participating compared to 2018. We are expecting bigger numbers and overseas participation at DCNC 2020!

There is still the opportunity to be a platinum or charity sponsor for the event. The event will include drinks and canapes and a Q&A panel of industry leaders, with a stunning backdrop of the Darling Harbour and Sydney City.
