Location: San Sebastian, Spain
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 Awards 2018
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 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.
Innovative, exciting, inspiring!
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 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-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.
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.
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 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.
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.
The Summit is a must for CMOs in global companies. I-COM gives you a lot of insights on what is going on on the media side.
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!
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-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.
This has been an interesting experience. The I-COM Global Summit is a good platform to meet people and talk about partnership.
