The format is very well done. CDM events are some of the best run I've encountered!

Loved the level of executives at the summit. Excellent connection opportunity with great presentations and networking.

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 checked with the CIOs that I met at the event and asked them how they chose this event versus the many other options they have and the answers were: 1) good experience with this forum in the past 2) timing of the event 3) reasonable investment of time 4) topics. The summit was much better for me than the typical trade show format.
