Tash Whitmey - Loyalty and Membership Director, Tesco, UK
My first year at I-COM was enlightening and entertaining. The former perhaps you'd expect from a data summit, the latter not so much. It's a gathering of like-minded, senior people who are genuinely committed to the smart use of data to drive marketing. The industry's very best. Add to that the scenic theatrical mix of beautiful surroundings (Andreas and his wife chose the venue with care) and the wonderful entertainment and you really do have a new and very original take on creative data. We saw some inspiring examples of data and creativity - in speakers, the awards and at the data fashion show. I-COM delivers on the promise of creative data in every way. Winning two awards didn't dull the experience either. (quoted while at Havas Helia)
Partha Sarathy - Chief Product Officer, Mindshare, India
The I-COM Global Data Summit was a good platform to engage with a diverse set of people in the field of data and marketing from across the globe. I liked the short & succinct format of the sessions. The Data Creativity Awards and the Hackathons were very well conducted, and the overall hospitality was excellent. It was also great to win here for the second year in a row.
Maggie Li - Media Associate Director, OMD, China
Being selected for the I-COM Data Creativity Awards was an enriching experience and we are even more excited to win the General Award as we were the only team from China.

The I-COM Global Summit is the highlight of my annual event calendar. It combines great people, programming, venue and production to create an experience that is truly unique in our industry. I think of it as the “Cannes of data and analytics” and it’s always a worthwhile investment to attend. The insights, relationships and experiences are impactful and long-lasting. I’m a big fan and am always happy to recommend it to my colleagues and friends in the ad-tech space.

It’s testament to Andreas and the organising committee that so many of the global leaders in Data & Measurement gather in one place to celebrate and share cutting-edge work in Data Creativity.

Winning an award has been a great honour and helped spark new conversations with businesses with great potential to collaborate.

The Data Creativity Awards and Global Summit are just that: Data + Creative + Global = Incredible.
