Events like these are so important for your continuing education, networking and easy vendor access.
The event was well organized and informative. I enjoyed gaining/sharing perspectives and networking with industry peers. The industry is always changing and it is imperative for executives to attend summits like this one in order to share/gain perspective. Also, it is becoming increasingly important to leverage vendor services to do some of the heavy lifting for the roll-out/implementation of disruptive technologies such as Cloud and Mobile due to reduced IT budgets and focus on quick time to market.

The most valuable takeaway? That the more CIOs I meet, the more I realize we are all dealing with similar issues and challenges.

While the presentations were excellent and educational, having an opportunity to meet and discuss common problems with other IT executives was by far the most valuable component of the summit. The combination of general sessions and think tanks was excellent.
The most valuable aspect of this event was the ability to meet and hear the opinions and experiences of my industry peers. Also, the format of the executive sessions was unexpectedly good; far better than I have experienced at similar events in the past.
