I-COM Global Summit

April 9 – 12, 2018
Annually, I-COM produces a major face to face gathering of the Marketing Data elite called the I-COM Global Summit. It is the world's leading Marketing Data & Measurement Strategy event, where the who's who from Smart Data Marketing from around the world gather to inspire, connect and develop.
It's a unique opportunity to explore in a trusted environment the forefront of this paradigm where 80+ case studies are put forward. The Summit enables an intimate open atmosphere for the attendees to build their Data Ecosystem dream team by being invitation-only, premium and artistically crafted.
Summit 2018 theme: The Reality Disruption Field
The degree and speed of the disruption of established industry sectors is increasing and predominantly data-driven. Data leaders are challenged in many companies to convince their boards to accelerate transformation and more dramatically adapt their organizations to remain sustainably competitive.
The Reality Disruption Field is where we realize how much more needs to be done. It is also where we consider how this new culture of disruption is influencing the formation of products & services throughout the Smart Data Marketing industry.
I-COM has pioneered a series of prestigious competitions to provide its community with:
◆ Recognition of the latest ground-breaking work in Smart Data Marketing
◆ Unique opportunity to identify potential partners for one's Data Ecosystem
◆ Guideline to help companies transform
◆ Inspiration for one's own potential project ideas
This has been absolutely beautiful as a venue. Andreas brought a very impressive group of senior people in the industry. It’s like an amassing feast - feast of food, great networking opportunities and great data and content.
It is very interesting to see where data stops and human decision takes over, which was one of the aims of the conference for me.
Exquisite event! It’s a small group of senior people from all over the world that deals with the issues of data, technology and measurement.
This has been an interesting experience. The I-COM Global Summit is a good platform to meet people and talk about partnership.
I believe that this kind of event is really important. I go to few of them because is far away but this one in particularly (I-COM Global Summit) where so many people from different markets get together and focus on data and analytics is really important, and also to keep up to date, knowing what’s going on.
This was my first time at the I-COM Global Summit. It’s a mix between technology and advertisement and marketing, and I think that’s very important for the industry.
It’s a great opportunity to see lots of different clients and subject matter, and get a chance to see what people are doing.
I-COM Global Summit is is a place where people from this industry come together - clients and agencies and ad tech platforms. They have brilliant ideas and can exchange them. It is also a great social event, you meet people from everywhere. It’s good for our team, because we need to partner with a lot of people, globally. We need to understand different ecosystems, different markets.
Somehow the bar has been raised even further, even higher. Fantastic location, the talks have been a fascinating diversion of everything in the world of data so I really enjoyed it.
For a company, such as Brandwatch, a technology company in world of social data, it’s fascinating to come to something like I-COM Global Summit and really get the sense of the world we inhabit and it is really helpful when we think how to develop our products, but also the commercial relationships that we have.
I always loved the Gala Awards Dinner, I actually enjoyed the fashion show even though I’m not sure everyone understood the connection between the fashion and the data. My husband is here, who is kind of more of a poet, and he loved the connection between the fashion show and the data hackathon. So, I thought that was actually a fun edition, a little risky, a little unusual but I really enjoyed it.
The Conference is fantastic, the list of attendees is amazing. This was actually my first time at I-COM, so I definitely will be coming back here next year. This is a world class conference. The attendees are from all over the world and from some of the biggest brands in the world.
We saw all sorts of presentations from business inside, business monitoring, as well as optimization, it combined the point of view of marketing as well as technology and I think that is really a wonderful combination.
I-COM Global Summit is always an interesting and stimulating experience from content perspective professionally, from a networking perspective, as well as from a culinary and fun perspective. So, the combo is just unique and that’s why I keep on coming to I-COM.
For me this is really about networking, meeting different people from different companies, and learning about new technologies and what’s changing the face of digital and how it’s affecting consumers.
Bravo Andreas for yet another fantastic I-COM Global Summit in wondrous Porto. Look forward to reuniting with this amazing community at #icom18
