One of the key challenges for any event organiser is how much detail do you get into? Some delegates really want to get into the nuts and bolts, while others just want the broad strokes big picture. We have addressed this problem at the CIO & IT Leaders Summit by introducing ‘Huddle Zones’. The agenda sessions (with the exception of the round table discussions) will be broad strokes with the speakers then making themselves available in the ‘Huddle Zone’ for anyone who has any questions or wishes to get into the subject in greater depth.
