What Our Customers Are Saying

"This was one of the best events I’ve ever attended (probably the best). Very close and focused participants, intense but not tedious content/scheduling, and interesting and to-the-point presentations/speeches. Another important thing is that sponsors were there but not to sell something. They were just part of the conversation all the time. Organization was flawless, end-to-end. Thank you for these incredible two days."

"I participate regularly in European events, but this is my first European IDC event, and I really enjoyed this format (a little tiring 😊, but that's part of it). The fact that the number of participants is restricted and that it is based on a broad discussion of all topics, allows attendees to not only gain the analysts' view on various challenges, but also to listen to peers, discuss, ask questions, and offer our own vision. In my point of view, this is a winning format! The venue, along with the balance between the commercial activity of the sponsors and rest of the content, made the event a real success! Congratulations!"

"It was a wonderful conference. It offered valuable insights and was a fantastic networking opportunity. I personally appreciate how well it was structured, with stimulating content in a convenient manner. I will apply the knowledge gained as a data practitioner and share some of the slides with my team. I am thankful for the invite and hope to be part of future IDC events."

"I just want to thank you for a wonderful two days in Vienna. 😊 It was again a brilliant event, splendid networking, very good speakers and topics. Charlotte and team, again had perfect organization in a perfect venue."

"Thanks for inviting me to the event – I found it very insightful and returned to the office re-energized, with a toolkit of ideas and approaches. I appreciate the time, effort, and thought you and your team invested to make the event so valuable for all the participants."

"Thanks for everything. The event was very useful and full of actionable advice. I especially liked the workshops — they were a very good opportunity to share my ideas and promote our community, profession, and common values."
