The EMC Team from EMEA West, approached Outsourced Events to help them to bring together a small number of C-Level clients for an intimate, informative and valuable forum. The event was aimed at CIOs where they could network with peers, discuss any new projects with the EMC experts and listen to engaging, high profile speakers.
EMC are proud to be a technical sponsor of Lotus F1 and were able to use the Lotus facility at Enstone in Oxfordshire to host this event. With such an exclusive venue, customers from EMEA West region, including the Nordics, Greece, Malta, Israel, Switzerland and Luxembourg made the trip. The challenge for the events team was to fly each executive into Heathrow and then transport them to Lotus, in the heart of the Oxfordshire Countryside, for a midday start on the 18th February. Each guest was emailed a individual itinerary before the event and met personally by a member of the OE team who were at each arrival gate. The event team worked hard to group the guests logically for smooth private transfers to the venue, in fact the biggest challenge was keeping to the agenda with so much to cover in such a short space of time.
The keynote session was delivered by Matthew Carter, CEO of the Lotus F1 Team and Jacques Boschung, Vice President of EMC Europe West. Following a series of topical presentations from Directors within the Global teams at EMC, VCE, VMware and RSA Security, guests heard from the Lotus F1 Team CIO about their IT Transformation Story and how Lotus are making use of EMC Technology. They were then taken, in groups, on a private tour of the facility to see the technology in action.
In the evening, EMC hosted a networking dinner at The Bear Hotel, with a guest speaker, Mark Jenkins, an F1 expert and professor of business strategy. The 13th Century coaching inn is reputed to be haunted and oozes historic country house charm which was a huge hit with the guests. The event concluded at midday on the 19th with lunch and then all executives were taken back to Heathrow.
Feedback from the guests and our client has been outstanding, with a growth in new business of over 180 projects either already in discussion or identified for further investigation.
