"For us the jointly organized seminar with IDC was a big success. We had clients and partners from all the country, and we have to thank IDC for their unconditional support not only as organizers but also as speakers.
The fact that IDC is a global leader was a decisive factor for us, and lead us to believe, since the beginning, in the success of this initiative and, of course, of future partnerships."
José Maria García-Soto,
Vice President, Information Builders
"IDC has proven to be a high quality partner in the organisation of events.
