  • "From several angles, SNW Europe is the number one event for the storage industry in Europe and beyond. There is no other entry in the industry calendar that allows you to connect with as many relevant storage influencers as this event. SNW Europe has the highest storage IQ/sqm. Unmissable in my opinion." - Tom Leyden, Director of Marketing and Alliances, Amplidata
