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.
Christophe Jouan - CEO and Co-Owner, Foresight Factory International, UK
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.

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.
Mauro Damo - Senior Data Scientist, Dell Technologies, USA
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.
Nick Orsman - International Head of Data and Analytics, Proximity, UK
It’s a great opportunity to see lots of different clients and subject matter, and get a chance to see what people are doing.
Xian (Vivian) Zhou - Senior Director, Global Data, Acxiom, Australia
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.
Greg Lee - Agency Group Lead, Brandwatch, UK
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.
Jane Clarke - CEO, MD, CIMM, USA
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.
Swen Graham - VP, Global Creative + Strategy, Foursquare, USA
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.
Wei Lin - Sr. Manager and Chief Data Scientist – Big Data, Dell EMC, USA
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.
Amaia Lasa - Director, HazelHeartwood, Belgium
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.
Roy Patel - Managing Director, CubicIndex, UK
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.
Thaer Namruti - EVP Precision Strategy, Publicis Media, UK
