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

I-COM Global is an incredible forum, there is nothing like it in the world. I fly 6000 miles to get here and for a good reason. There is so much opportunity to meet extremely talented people who are experienced and forward thinking in their fields. I-COM Global Summit is the white unicorn of conferences. It’s such a fun forum. I truly enjoy meeting and interacting with peers in such a comfortable setting. The relationships you form here in just a few days last a lifetime. It’s something that I cherish and look forward to what will happen in 2019.
I-COM is an epicenter for the data science industry to come together and address challenging issues, and support the disruption that is going to be so important for our industry. It is was a fabulous experience.
The I-COM Global Summit is one of the key things we look forward in our calendar. It lets us really meet and network with industry leaders, understand how they solve problems, understand their challenges and see their mindset in action. It also gives us the chance to raise the profile of our company. I-COM really stands out, particularly in terms of the calibre of the people there.
I-COM is great. It gives us great exposure in the industry. This is a great place for networking and identifying new opportunities.
I-COM creates such a rich experience: from the dinner with a 3-star Michelin chef in a beautiful museum, to seeing industry leaders together sharing their insights. I-COM has brought together the beauty of life in the industry. It was a privilege to be there.
I’ve met so many interesting people and there was so much great content. The I-COM Global Summit has been amazing every year. For those working in marketing intelligence and performance, this is the most targeted, on-point conference you can go to.
I-COM has been part of my life for the past 10 years or so. Apart from the last 2 events, I’ve attended each one and always find them incredibly beneficial. To be honest, I think this one (2018) has been the best yet.
Acxiom has been a sponsor for I-COM for many years. I think I-COM Global Summit is a unique and valuable event, from a personal and professional perspective. For me, it’s a chance to meet new people and exchange ideas. From a corporate perspective it’s a great way to meet new partners and work with existing ones. We get to connect with them in a fun and relaxed environment and I think however you look at it, I-COM is a really great event.
It’s great to meet people who are in the same line of work in different industries. We face many of the same challenges - it's amazing to have this network to get a pulse on what's happening in the industry.
It’s been a roller-coaster of sessions during the conference, amazing events in the evening, networking and an amazing location. When it's all combined over 4 days, you really get to know everyone you're with. It’s been fulfilling from a personal, professional and collaborative perspective. I really enjoyed it!
I-COM brings together a diverse community and the summit is a great place. I think the interactive sessions, where you see people on stage in TED format were fantastic.
I believe in multidisciplinary teams who will be the ones that provide breakthroughs in the future.
I believe in I-COM and in everything that Andreas is doing. It’s a global organisation; people are thoughtful, they are thought provoking; they are intellectually curious, multigenerational and coming from many industries. It’s a very interesting group of people to interact with.
When I leave a conference like this, I feel like I’m bringing the greatest of what’s going on in the world back to NY, helping deliver what people are trying to do.
I’ve been coming to I-COM since 2010 and I think this year (2018) was a great conference. Our customers are here, where groundbreaking industry leadership takes place.
I-COM has become one of the most important events in the digital space every year.
The conference was great. The right people are here, the content is good, but I always judge a conference by its breaks and they were almost as good as the conference.
I’ve been to I-COM a few times now, and I love its unique data measurement-centric view of the world. The content is deep and rich, people are passionate about their subjects. You can tell that those who are speaking truly care about this industry. The whole event just comes together - we are big fans of I-COM.
This is the best event of the year - this was my 3rd one (2018)! You learn about the new and upcoming things in measurement and data as well as advertising in general. The opportunity to meet people and engage in conversations is great, the atmosphere is relaxed and everyone is so approachable.
The I-COM Global Summit brings together the top minds in data science, discussing ways to innovate and talking about learnings across companies. It gives us a chance to share what we do and how we use data; and that is incredibly powerful.
I prefer conferences where you have the opportunity to meet everyone and engage in interesting ways. I-COM is very special from that aspect.
The summit gathers hugely interesting people, the organisation is phenomenal and the experience is valuable.
I-COM has so many purposes, shaping the direction of policies and best practices for the industry, as well as establishing itself as a vital networking opportunity to people. I get so much value from attending and the content is always fantasic. I go to events across the industry, but I always think there is something special about I-COM.
Having a summit and a hackathon dedicated to data is very valuable for big companies. Normally you don’t have the time to really get your head around big problems so having these few days is a chance to really focus. You can enjoy having the best in class around you, trying to work on your solution, to hack your problem but also to share their best in class practice.
Very informal sessions allow you to have a kind of new creative process in your mind - a serendipity process, as well as insights you hadn't thought about before.
I came to the I-COM Global Summit for the opportunity to network with other companies, get our ideas out there and test them at a very early stage - it worked great.
It was a very nice event and I had fun!
Innovative, exciting, inspiring!
I think I-COM is about learning, being plugged in and it's a great way to keep yourself updated in an industry that is changing.
This is a great event because it brings together people from around the world, who all work in different aspects of data. There is so much opportunity to learn as well as drive larger decisions.
I would sum up the summit as intense. It’s intense regarding the discussions and the people you meet. However, Andreas makes it a great balance so attendees can enjoy the city and embrace the atmosphere.
There are a lot of sessions on data and programming, but I-COM has the most hands-on activities and I love the internationality of the whole event. Every year I come and I always bring something back home.
I-COM Global Summit (2017) 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 (2017). It’s a mix between technology and advertisement and marketing, and I think that’s very important for the industry.
