"Our sponsors know from experience that the CDO Summit provides intimate access to the digital elite, and that these executives are fast becoming our society's future leaders and CEOs."
Speakers at the 2014 Summit will include digital executives from companies such as Unilever, IBM, Jostens, General Electric, and Nielsen, as well as from nonprofits such as Amnesty International, the Michel J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the State of New York.
Speakers also come from companies representing a wide range of sectors, including:

Sponsorship inventory is almost completely sold out, but a few spots are still available. Visit http://www.cdosummit.com/sponsors for more information.
The inaugural 2013 CDO Summit also sold out of attendee tickets, weeks in advance.
To handle the demand this year, the organizers have doubled the number of days – from one to two - and added twice the capacity by hosting it at the Time Warner conference center.
Despite this, the 2014 Summit is likely to sell out again.
