The Summit Format
Since Summit 2021 is primarily a one-track conference, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to really get to know the other participants. While you’ll work in break-out groups for the case study and the interactive exercise, everyone comes back together to discuss and debate their group’s approaches.
Unlike most conferences, Summit 2021 speakers don’t present-and-run — they stay and participate in the rest of the conference and are available for informal conversations during meals, breaks, and the cocktail party. On Tuesday, you’ll have the opportunity to choose to take a deep-dive into either the more technology-focused determinants of digital transformation success or the more strategic/leadership-focused skills for winning with digital transformation. But you don’t have to decide ahead of time, and you are welcome to move between the sessions.
Who Attends the Summit?
Since 1997, the Summit has attracted CIOs, CTOs, and business and technology professionals from organizations around the globe including:
We build in tons of time for informal conversations, networking, and just plain having fun! You'll have plenty of time to linger over breakfast and lunch. Unwind and socialize at Monday evening's cocktail party, where you'll have the opportunity to mingle with attendees and speakers. There will be plenty of food, so you probably won't need to eat dinner afterward, but you may find yourself grabbing a group and heading out to one of the great pubs or restaurants nearby.
Be comfortable — Summit 2021 is business-casual. Be sure to check the weather before you pack; the Boston-area weather is notably fickle!
