“The event was extremely valuable to SAP. Firstly, the organization both in advance and at the event was excellent, really first class. The location was excellent, especially for centrality and ease of transportation. I really liked the format, basically a “tag-team” with your Industry Analyst . She had shared with me in advance her theme and her slides, so we were able to align perfectly. But the most value was in the access to your clients and customers. This event is definitely one I would like to see SAP sponsor in the future.”

“You simply never know if an analyst event is going to be worth the money and the time. It’s rare when 1) I (truly) learn something; 2) I meet ALOT of interesting people (clients, prospects, analysts, competitors); 3) we feel like it was money well spent.”
- Smarter Process Leader, Europe, IBM
“The pre-event organisation and meetings set up was excellent, which carried through to the event itself. It was well run, with the exactly the right people we need to meet, and the environment meant we could talk to people throughout the breaks. The meetings service was fantastic and the informal networking approach much appreciated. This was the first event NEC have done within Smart Cities, as well as our first event with Ovum – and I would give it a 10/10.”
