I learned a lot at this event and have a number of takeaways from the sessions. I like the short presentation formats and that there is time to chat with the speakers. I enjoyed the meetings being back-to-back because the speed seemed to really work out perfectly and it prevented a bunch of wasted time. I was able to meet some interesting vendors, too. The meetings and event, in general, were well managed.

Excellent. At least a dozen follow-ups already under way.

The summit was very much well organized, well structured, co-ordinated and managed. Also, the manner in which people from diffrent backgrounds, cultures and industries were made to engage meaningfully via this summit was beyond my measure o imagination. It was truely an amazing experience.
My most valuable take away was by far the relationships and I'll say friendships that I developed, not only with other CIOs but frankly with the vendors who attended. I especially was surprised by the benefit of getting to know some of the vendors in a way that other formats had not allowed. It is much easier to develop partnerships following an event like this.
I felt like I just cut about a month out of my sales cycle, at least. This was the first event of this type that I have attended and I felt it was very direct and on target. The sessions were perfect in the time needed.
