Thank you for a wonderful summit. I learned a great deal and had a marvelous time.
From my perspective the CIO Summit delivers a good mix of peer-to-peer collaboration between CIOs, discussion with senior vendor executives, and IDC sharing of insights and market developments. The Innovation Challenge adds a vital element to teamwork and collaboration.
Great event and a wonderful location. Cleanwave was well received by all and was a great inclusion. Information nature is second to none and continues to help IDC to stand above the crowd.
Great experience. Great Insights and takeaways.
Innovation Challenge was really good. AI topics were interesting.
Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Sintra Hills, the Cascais area has been, one of the best-loved Portuguese tourist destinations
since the end of the 19th century.
The Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel & Spa is a 5 star hotel in Cascais, facing the beaches of the City of Lisbon and
30km from the city centre. The perfect haven for an unforgettable stay. Within an environment where the classical and the
contemporary blend into a single scenery, the Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel & Spa derives from the recovery of the former
residences of the last King of Italy - Humberto II.
