"Being someone that is invited to dozens of these conferences every month, I can honestly say that I have extensive experience in attending a variety of CIO shows. CIOarena stands out in its ability to unite a tremendously accomplished audience in an intimate and conducive environment, executed with the utmost professionalism and finesse. A must attend for busy execs, such as myself, that must pick and choose which events to attend.”

"I want to thank you for the CIOarena meeting on April 21st. 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."
