The event is also unique in its organization, the itinerary can be customized to your business needs, priorities and strategic objectives. The event offers conference sessions, one-to-one business meetings and interactive discussions. It’s especially important that the participants have an opportunity to organize one-on-one meetings with solution providers of their choice

"I attended the London conference and was blown away by the professionalism of the invited attendees. I met a number of experts who were able to either enlighten me directly, or point me toward solutions that were not obvious, so this was a very productive gathering imo. Peter Barnes, of Soho Now and world reknown Batman enthusiast, stuck out due to his attire - he sported one of his best Batman shirts while we all wore jackets and ties. He often takes some flak for his extreme Dark Knight worship - I am told that his office walls are covered with antique posters of vintage Batman movies and comic books - and his sofa is a soft Batmobile designed by Sonia Paterson. This may lead you to believe he's more interested in superhero fandom, but his one on one chats were a huge hit among the participants - he's an expert in implementing big data solutions which is an area not yet understood by most professional data managers. Loved his Batman shirt, loved his chat, will emulate his attire next time." Bart Bennison, CIO StubSelect
