WHAT IS WorldHostingDays?
WorldHostingDays is a global event series for the cloud services and internet infrastructure industries.
WorldHostingDays has been around since 2003 and was originally focused on the hosting industry. Over the years, WHD has expanded and evolved to include the robust array of technologies that make online communication possible, and now WHD addresses the entire range of internet technology and culture.
We now host nine events spanning the US, Germany, Singapore, Russia, India, and China. We also provide special unique experiences for industry leaders including F1 racing and sailing.
Our main event is WHD.global, a week-long festival that happens annually in Germany. It’s where leaders come together to understand how all digital technologies fit together to shape our current world and our future.
With its unique programming and atmosphere, WHD.global is now the main global event for cloud services and internet infrastructure.

Beijing | China
WHD.china 2017 is more than just another exhibition. WorldHostingDays is partnering with Racënt one again for WHD.china in Beijing, and the Racënt Team is building a complete go-to-market package that’s perfect to help ISVs and other technology providers gain access to access the China market. Since Racënt operates the largest portal for the hosting and domain industries in China, this event combines their deep market experience with the open platform of WHD.china to create a unique “market-entry” opportunity that you can’t afford to miss.
China is already the second largest economy overall, but it has just become number one in the number of internet users with 50% penetration — meaning that 700 million people have access to the internet. Experts agree that demographic forces alone are going to drive China even higher. And the demand for websites, domains, content generation, and hardware are going to make China the largest technology market in the world over the next few years.
WHD.china is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this incredible opportunity. Special exhibit and sponsorship packages are available when combined with other WHD and NamesCon events worldwide
