"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.”

"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.”

"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."

"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!"
