Technology companies survive and thrive based not on their ability to meet technical goals, but on their ability to develop awareness and create demand. Creating that demand is increasingly difficult because of two factors. The market has become crowded and noisy with ever more providers while the acquirers of technology have become ever more difficult to access due to the growing responsibility of their role and the increasing demands on their time.
To cut through the noise and simplify access, technology providers need a shortcut, a bypass, an “in”.
We are that in.
CDM Media specializes in end-user focused technology summits and custom events that bring together C-level executives from Fortune 1000 companies and the major technology solution providers they need to meet. These events are focused on the need of technology acquirers to quickly find answers to their pressing technology problems through interaction with partners and peers. We serve two communities, both technology providers and technology acquirers, and have helped thousands achieve success they never envisioned without us.
We are the leading global B2B marketing firm specializing in C-suite engagement for the world’s largest brands. Founded in 2007, we are located in Chicago and New York with remote teams around the world.
We get millions of dollars of deals from the CDM Media CIO events because we can have real conversations with CIOs we otherwise would not have gotten access to, and I have moved almost all of our marketing budget from other CIO events (like Evanta and HMG) because the one-on-one conversations have been so successful for us.

Extremely well organized and the 1:1s were scheduled and facilitated very well. The CDM Media staff is extremely professional and well organized - love working with them.
Director, Field and Partner Marketing, Birst
The format is set up nicely with the opportunity to meet one-on-one with delegates and an opportunity to present in front of an audience. These events have been a great lead-generator for us!
Senior Product Executive, Duo Security
The flow of the event works well from the opening remarks to the keynotes to the various sessions. The executive exchanges resulted in some great discussions! We made contacts in the region and have build out new business relationships made at the summit.

What impressed me the most was how the CDM Media team knew every delegate by name and were very accommodating to make sure we had all of our meetings, even when delegates were delayed.
Enterprise Sales Engineer, EMEA, LogRhythm
This is the best event format I have ever seen! Every conversation we had resulted in a potential for a partnership.
Account Manager, PhishLine
The events are always well-scheduled by the CDM team and the format allows for a very productive event. We love how the summits get us access to decision makers. We've already confirmed next steps with leads from the event!
Senior Account Executive/Business Development, Rimini Street
The meeting format was good as allowed for very interactive discussions and input. The content was awesome! The one-on-one conversations are a big differentiation to other conferences as it forces the conversation to determine real business synergies. All was positive!
