Why the CDO Exchange?

After three successful years of running our flagship UK CDO Exchanges annually, due to popular demand the CDO Exchange was launched in Germany. In 2019 we are delighted to unite 60 CDOs and de facto CDOs from the DACH regions leading enterprises across manufacturing, retail, e-commerce, automotive, financial services and much more to discuss the industry’s leading challenges.

An Exchange is made up of innovative learning and networking opportunities with topics selected by data function leaders for fellow data strategists. This ensures that all topics are kept at a strategic level and the audience is made up of decision makers. keeping even the most senior business leaders engaged. This invitation-only meeting is an intimate environment that creates connections which become long-term partnerships. You will experience inspiring keynote addresses, in-depth case studies, structured networking and interactive discussion groups (our signature Think Tanks and Lunch & Learns). The consultative one-to-one business meetings between attendees and solution providers are carefully scheduled throughout the Exchange to meet your specific business needs.



Access to the Exchange is limited. Exchange delegates and sponsors are handpicked based on their ability to contribute at a strategic level, creating the ideal environment for idea generation. The CDO Exchange is capped at 60 attendees, creating the optimal value of your time, peers, business meetings, and speaker events. You can expect only senior budget holders to be in attendance.



A true peer-to-peer environment means that the executives taking the stage and those in attendance are of the same seniority level. The CDO Exchange brings together a unique group of the most active data & analytics executives in Europe today from enterprise level companies as they not only work to execute today’s plan but also develop the strategy for tomorrow.



A true peer-to-peer environment that sparks inspiration from Keynote Sessions, Think Tanks, Roundtables and 1:1 Business Meetings as you make connections with most innovative and cutting edge executives and solution providers in the industry today.
