"I normally attend these conferences in person and look forward to the networking and amazing selection of topics that are presented. With Covid and all of the “new norms” we have all been experiencing in our industry, the CIOarena Virtual event, nailed the new platform with topics and content that hit home and provided views, solutions, and thought provoking insights that you would normally experience in person at their face to face conferences. This Team set the bar HIGH on how a Virtual event should be conducted! Great Job to Stavros and your Team!!
Dave Swierzynski
Vice President IT, Gallagher Bassett

"The CIOarena Virtual conference exceeded all my expectations. I was impressed at how Stavros and his team took these unprecedented times in stride, and didn’t miss a beat with hosting this conference in a virtual format instead of the usual face-to-face format. They provided an opportunity for networking with peers and vendors, as well as a large number of excellent presentations by experts in their fields. The virtual vendor booths were easy to browse, and provided a wealth of information at your fingertips. The webinars were spot on, and delivered concise and relevant content in engaging presentations. Last but not least, the chat rooms were perfect for deep dives into areas of interest, as well as to let your hair down and connect with the community. All in all, this was an excellent use of my time, and I look forward to future sessions run by this team. Congratulations on an excellent job, Stavros!"


Lata Walsh
Director IT (an American Healthcare Company)

"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 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!"
