What Our Attendees Say

"This was the most wonderful conference I have EVER been to!  I met so many great people and two amazing partners, that we are immediately going to begin delivering solutions together. I was able to speak to a lot of vendors and am meeting with IBM to begin testing Bluemix.  I met with Corent, Orbitera and several others and am so happy I came.”

 ► Jerod Powell, Founder & CEO, InfinIT Consulting

“I’m really happy I was invited to the NexGen Conference, I made some really good contacts with a couple of vendors that I’ll probably be looking to work with right away! Just wanted to let you know I received some great value for more time.”

 Keith Parent, CEO, Court Square Group

"When I was first approached about attending, I was hesitant given the time of year and the number of initiatives that I am currently managing in preparation for the coming fiscal year. However, I can truly say that I am very happy that I prioritized this event.
I was able to not only increase my network of contacts with other thought leaders within the industry, but I was also able to identify “actionable” takeaways that will help me positively impact my businesses bottom-line."

 Charles Stafford, Vice President of Technical Operations, Matrix Integration

"In order to succeed, partnerships are critical.  I am excited that this event provides the opportunities to connect, share best practices, and find ways to round out my portfolio."

 Alex Brown, CEO, 10th Magnitude

"Cloud computing is not just a new technology and is not just a new approach to IT service delivery.  Cloud computing is transformative in its ability to enable change and growth for business of all sizes."

 Allen Falcon, CEO, Cumulus Global
