Here's what our past attendees had to say:

The summit was a success in terms of both networking and generation next steps with a few targeted providers.

Vice President Global O&T Risk Management, BNY Mellon

Thoroughly enjoyed the summit. I especially liked the "speed dating" approach used to introduce new vendors and their services to me.

Senior Director, Web & Mobile Technologies and Chief Information Security Officer, Veolia North America

Thank you for the wonderful event! Very much appreciated the fact it was focused on the digital experience - product and marketing.

Head of Global Digital Products, Pitney Bowes

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 think some of the sessions have been very strong, and also some of the informal interactions have been almost as valuable as the sessions themselves. I think it's a very nice high-level group, small enough for people to really have conversations.
