The CDO Strategy Meeting is a discussion based gathering of Data Leaders from the largest companies in the US. This event is invite only and attended strictly by CDOs, CDSs, CIOs, SVP/VPs and Directors.


As opposed to a traditional conference setting with a speaker/ audience format, the “discussion group” environment demands group participation which leads to a sharing of ideas and experiences at multiple levels and stages of implementation.



Each CDO is engaged with and selects on average 2-3 vendors they want to meet with.  Their selection is based solely on current or planned initiatives and interest in the product/service offerings of the suppliers.
