We brought our one-day conference and expo back to the Windy City: Expert speakers, top vendors...and all that jazz.
A sold-out exhibition floor was the first indication that November's SC Congress Chicago – our second year bringing our conference and expo to the Windy City – was on the right track.
Nearly 400 attendees for the one-day gathering of security pros was a growth rate of 21 percent over the prior year.
People were literally standing in back for each session, and attendees responded that they were thrilled by the event. Many noted that it enlightened them beyond their expectations as to the plethora of challenges faced by today's security professional – from bettering secure coding practices to information sharing globally. Speakers told SC staff that they enjoyed participating, and many new expert contacts were readily volunteered for future online and physical events.
Additionally, guests seemed to enjoy the venue with its state-of-the-art digital monitors – giving our tech event that edgy, cool vibe we look for in our one-day events.
The gathering received notable press coverage with top television and news outlets in the Chicago area, such as Chicago Tonight and the Chicago Sun Times. CIO Talk Radio conducted an interview with the closing keynote speakers, while other press that attended included CNNMoney, Examiner.com, Mobile Marketing & Technology and The Wall Street Journal.
