We may have to go some way to beat the record interest in last year’s DCS Awards (300 nominations from 200 companies, across 33 categories), but we very much hope that the DCS Awards 2021 will see us return to our London location, for a physical, if Covid-compliant event.

While the DCS Awards 2020 took place virtually, and were a great success, there’s no doubt that getting the industry together for a night of celebration, comedy and dancing – not necessarily all at the same time or intentional(!) – in London has to be the way forward, if at all possible.

So, we’re launching the DCS Awards 2021, with some key dates outlined below, culminating in the Awards Dinner in October.

As ever, we’re looking to recognise and congratulate data centre industry innovation – whether it be projects, products, services or corporate or individual excellence. The Awards’ categories cover both the facilities and IT aspects of the data centre, reflecting the gradual convergence of the two disciplines as a prerequisite for digital transformation. The achievements of vendors, their business partners, staff and customers are the focus of the 33 Awards categories. This year, for the first time, we’ve included a specific energy efficiency/sustainability innovation award.


The 2021 DCS Awards feature 33 categories across FOUR groups. The Project awards are open to end user implementations of datacentre technologies and servicesbefore 28th February 2021.The Innovationawards are open to products and solutions that have been available in Europebetween 1st February 2020 and 31st January 2021 while the Company and Special awards nominees must have been present in the EMEA market prior to 1st September 2020.
