Attendees at CTO Power Summit include CTOs or equivalent-level technical or engineering executives who have ultimate responsibility for enterprise-wide (or business-division) technology decisions and budgets. The following comments are from individuals attending the 2010 CTO Power Summit:
"It covered a lot of areas. I was very interested in the DC Building content. I would like to see a further unlayering of the Smart Grid opportunities/challenges for power electronics companies."
"It was a good opportunity to network and communicate with the industry leaders from both the private and government sector."
"The Summit was too short! I could have spent a few more days with one on one talks. Of course with everyone being so busy that is a difficult balancing act."
"The wide variety of topics was appropriate to ensure some good cross-fertilization of trends and technologies."
"The range of topics was wider than I thought it was going to be and included a lot of good information on the markets and for the devices discussed."
"This was my first introduction to the smart grid market and I learned a lot."
"I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet colleagues from different power industries and countries and exchange ideas and experiences with them."
"The best parts were discussions of what will be needed for new products in the future, and what the obstacles are that we are facing today and need to be resolved."
"The level of detail in the sessions was sufficient, deeper detail was possible in the side discussions."
"I appreciated the openness of most delegates and the opportunities to discuss things openly without the 'competition barrier.'"
"This event included very interesting subjects and a good and informal atmosphere."
"The location was very good. I enjoyed the possibility to talk one-to-one with peers of different companies."
"I was very satisfied with the overall breathe of content. It caused me to think about the future from a different standpoint and I am considering how that may affect my business."
"I thought the level of detail was correct. Not too little and not too much. I felt bad missing the presentation I missed because I received so much insight from the other presentations."
"Everything was done very well, from the presentations, to the location, to the food."
"Thank you for the warm welcome and hospitality. It was well worth my time. I'm looking forward to the next one."
