Audience Acquisition

Highlights:

ABM-enabled

Map to your ideal customer profile

White glove service

Personal relationships

Once a city and date have been selected for one of our Custom Executive Roundtable Dinners, CDM Media works closely with our partners to identify the accounts that matter most for representation and attendance for the event. This starts with understanding your ideal customer profile – what type of customer is best helped by the solutions your organization provides, based on employee size, revenue, industry, existing technology platforms and more. If you’ve already embraced Account-Based Marketing (ABM), those logos move to the top of the list for our team’s outreach. Using that data, our team of relationship managers will reach out to recruit attendance based on the executives most engaged on the subject matter set for discussion. Our white-glove service manages the executive’s attendance from initial commitment through onsite registration, ensuring a great turnout and engaged audience for the night’s discussions.

Dinner & Discussion

There is a paradigm shift taking place across the IT and networking landscape! While focus is shifting from network performance and connectivity towards application performance, digital experience, and business insight and analytics, research shows that many CIOs feel underprepared to help their businesses execute a customer-focused digital agenda.

  • Two out of five CIOs surveyed say they are underinvesting in emerging technologies and analytics.
  • More than a quarter (28%) of CIOs rate their IT organizations' digital skill sets as below average, particularly in customer and digital experience and analytics.

The cause of this is simple - traditional processes and technology do not easily enable the "Digital Enterprise" nor "Digital Experience". Due to the manual and segmented nature of traditional technology and processes, near real-time insights and information are anything but possible. Real-time insights are now a boardroom requirement for enterprises to be successful.

Join us for a candid discussion on how your peers are managing this shift:

  • Building scale and flexibility into their infrastructure in order to support improved data collection and analysis.
  • Ensuring that the current infrastructure, applications, and processes support digital initiatives and innovation.
  • Increasing visibility and centralized control over their network.

Follow our tried-and-true agenda formats or create your own custom flow for the evening to maximize engagement. Get to know the people behind the technology and the logos, hear their perspectives and challenges, and share your own experiences. Forge business relationships that will lead to new opportunities today.
