The Challenge

With the introduction of GDPR we needed to look for additional ways to target new prospects and customers. We do use other solutions, eg webinars, where we have a defined audience, these are still in place.

The Solution

We tried the CIO Event as it's a slightly different way of reaching new prospects, due to the opportunity of pre-matching us with prospects for 1-2-1 meetings.
The speaking slot is also very useful and a good talking point. Good element of pre-planning to the sessions. As they are run in different regions we get to touch local audiences, whereas some events are always in the same location.
The size of the events are good, not too small and not huge like some trade shows so you can meet a reasonable number of delegates.

"We have taken part in several CIO events and have always found the GBI team to be very helpful and proactive."

- Stephen Wilson, CMO @ eBECS


The Results

We met a good level of prospect (senior level), which is useful if we have already engaged with that company, we get to speak to someone higher up the food chain.
What we like most 
The presentation slot, the pre-planned 1-2-1 meetings. We get introduced to people who are not on our 1-2-1 meeting list which is useful.
The events company are very proactive and chase up their customer base to ensure the meetings are attended. We get the contact details post event which helps with GDPR.
