Mark Johnstone, Show Director said, "The event was a great success with a fantastic reaction to a great agenda and speaker line-up. The marketplace has clearly developed from 2011 and this was represented by the growing number of attendees and exhibitors.

"Next year's show will be to be even larger as the interest in cloud computing continues to gain momentum."
