Testimonials

HVAC Manager, Virgin Media

There was scepticism on how 'speed dating' would work: the answer is extremely well. The professionalism and very high calibre of the people attending made the experience extremely worthwhile.

Data Center Manager, University of Cambridge

The ability to connect with service providers to explore technology advancements in two days rather than 6-12 months is unparalleled.

Data Centre Manager, Yahoo! Inc

Probably one of the most interesting forums I have participated in the last two years.
