Very instructive as usual with brilliant speakers, good networking opportunities.

All was even better than expected...networking sessions, dinners and discussions. All were good opportunities to mix with peers. This format works well for sales leads and brand exposure to a C-level audience.

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.
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.
