EMBRACING INNOVATION FOR A BETTER AFRICA
EMBRACING INNOVATION FOR A BETTER AFRICA
“The conference room is full and it is always to go see that. There was a lot of reaction from the audience during the presentations. At these conferences sometimes people can lose focus. But I am very impressed with how people are kept engaged. The quality and the type of people that have been invited is very important. There are experts like heads, CIOs, CTOs as well as people who are not experts themselves but have interest in the topic. That mix of people is very useful and these are the types of people I want to talk to.”
“Indonesia Security Summit 2018 was perfect in terms of choice of venue and organization. I came here to grow my business here in Indonesia and I would say it’s top level conference on international scale and I do a lot of international conferences. It was a top-notch conference and it was a big surprise to find one in Indonesia.”
“It was one of the better events that I have attended and was one of the sponsors for. It was enlightening. There were people who have not heard of Parasoft before so it was a good time for us to be able to share what we can do with them. The quality of delegates was quite good. We had some people talking to us who are decision makers. We have the heads of IT, the influencers who are attending this summit. I certainly hope to do some business after the event. We have found a lot of potential leads that we need to follow up with. A very well run and well organized event. Getting people to the exhibitor booths, getting good quality delegates, getting feedback from the pre-course questionnaires from the attendees, organizers have ticked all the boxes till now.”
“It has been a good event from our perspective and we have generated some great business. The count of delegates was surprisingly very high. I have had very senior security officers, very senior CIOs of very large banks and enterprise organizations and they have shown a very strong interest in what we had to talk about and showcase. My diary is already full with follow-up meetings, presentations and demos working closely with our partners. So we look forward to securing some business pretty quickly. We have some very good leads to follow up with and I give the event an 8 out of 10. Thank you Tradepass for organizing this event.”
