The summit was very tightly run, no wasted time, every minute provided either presentations, panels, vendor one-on-ones or networking opportunities. Also, the topics were very spot on addressing current trends--and needs.

Good mix of vendors, delegates and overall topics. Nice execution!

The event was well organized and informative. I enjoyed gaining/sharing perspectives and networking with industry peers. The industry is always changing and it is imperative for executives to attend summits like this one in order to share/gain perspective. Also, it is becoming increasingly important to leverage vendor services to do some of the heavy lifting for the roll-out/implementation of disruptive technologies such as Cloud and Mobile due to reduced IT budgets and focus on quick time to market.

This event doesn't even compare to other conferences in terms of networking depth. Seldom would you have the opportunity to meet all executives in one place unless, of course, you're at another CIO event. As far as expos and trade shows, this beats them hands down.
EVP, Sales and Marketing
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.
