    Vice President, Tools & Technology, MapQuest

  • My experience at the event was very positive. The diversity of companies and attendees turned out to be a powerful asset; it forced a welcome retreat from the industry specific business concerns that we all live and breathe every day and allowed a higher level focus on creativity, innovation and growth. I was impressed with the common solution at this level.
    Chief Technology Officer, RadiSyS

  • This event runs like a well oiled machine!
    Technical Director, Henkel
