"Just a quick thank you to you and your staff. I thought the event was an excellent example of how to get everyone together and learn from one another in an open environment. I was honored to be part of your event. Thanks again for such a great day. Also, I understand you were in charge of the menu. What a great arrangement and selection you provided. I could not have asked for anything better.” 
 
Dave Swierzynski
Vice President Architecture, Gallagher Bassett

"Excellent event. Great organization and logistics. Covered topics very diverse and interesting; liked the fact that not all were focused on 'selling' but rather demonstrating technology and discussing innovation. Thank you for the invitation.”

Manou Galvan
Senior Vice President Infrastructure and Security, Citigroup

"I want to thank you for the CIOarena meeting. It was a very good meeting. I finally got to meet people outside of medicine, listen to what other people do and make some connections with people from Microsoft and other companies. I also walked out with some new ideas to implement at work. This clearly makes for a great meeting."

Alon Ben-Ari

Chief Information Officer, NorCal Veterans Affairs Health System

“The agenda and presentation time, was just about right...to the point and short, however, engaging. I already took some names and contact info and am interested in pursuing some products that may fit our industry needs. My table attendees were engaging and we exchanged info regarding challenges we all face these days.”
 
Roberto Rimniceanu
Director IT, Starwood Hotels and Resorts
“The CIOarena  provided an excellent platform for networking with fellow IT executives along with informative sessions with talented thought provoking presenters. I walked away with new ideas, relationships and opportunities that will be very helpful with both current and future opportunities. A must attend event for all senior IT executives.” 

Dave Cummings
Director IT, Pampered Chef

"The keynote speaker was really good, he knew his stuff, and kept the audience engaged, as did all of the speakers. I did meet with quite a few local companies, and it was noticeable that many knew each other, a testament to the type of audience you've captured. Again, I thank you for this opportunity, and I look forward to next meeting!"
