This event was much more productive than other summits or conferences. The business vertical focus is very important because everyone has the same interests, needs, and business problems to solve. My expectations were exceeded. This is a winning format.

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.

There's been this enormous breath of experience from conversations. It's been extremely powerful.
The format gave us, as a vendor, a relaxed environment in which to engage with C-level decision makers, which is traditionally a difficult gig to put together. The event was thoroughly productive for our company and we're progressing a couple of opportunities as we speak.
My most valuable take away from the CIO Summit was new networking contacts at several companies. The think tanks had great subjects and speakers. I was impressed with the attendees; I made several new connections with CIOs I did not know from other companies.
