Testimonials

  • "The show has been good. There’s been a lot of people, a lot of attendance. People passing by; I kind of like the idea of having different types of businesses like IoT, Security and Big Data, having a nice mix of things. I get the chance to talk to some people that have a complete different perspective.”
    Principal Sales Engineer - Maria DB
  • “We’ve been on exhibition duty the whole time. It’s been that busy. I has a box of business cards when I arrived, 500, and all gone, every single one is gone. Really engaging. “It’s our second time at the show, we did it last year. Definitely had to do it again this year, and it’s been a resounding success, really really good. I would suggest that anybody that is entering this market space, look at the BDW show, not only form a view point of exhibiting, but also presenting. You have to do the two together to make it worthwhile."
    Sales Director, UK – Splash BI
  • "Big Data World is a good event with a lot of attendees and a wide range of exhibitors. We faced some interesting leads that seemed really prepared. This is just the type of audience we are looking for; well informed and who are looking for the leading providers to cover their needs."
    Lead Solution Specialist - TimeXtender
  • “It is the first time we are at the show, we are a French Start Up, we try to expand into the UK, so I think Big Data World was a key point to expand in the market, the UK market. We already made an option for next year. My regret from this year is that we didn’t book a session, so I’m looking forward to booking a session to present our platform. What I see is that all the sessions have a lot of success, a lot of people, they are interested in content in terms of experience, client experience and so on, so I would be very happy next year to be part of that”
    Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer – ForePaaS
  • "Pivigo has participated in many events in the UK & Europe over the last 12 months and Big Data World was by far the best of them all. The event was a huge success delivering a ROI, prompting us to participate in Big Data World in Germany and London next year."
    Marketing & Communications Manager - Pivigo
  • "I have taken away some great ideas from Big Data World! I have talked with some great suppliers which was my main reason for attending – to connect and network with people in the industry. There’s not many opportunities like this for you to go to one place and see everything in one room. I hope to be back again next year! "
    Head of Data Science - Barclays (Visitor)
  • "Cloud Expo Europe & Data Centre World located alongside Big Data World added huge value to my experience at the event as it made me think about the different ways of relating to data & making me question things which I don’t usually think about from a data point of view in my every day work life. Overall, I liked the range, scope & diversity of the event and I will definitely recommend the rest of the Sky team attend alongside myself in 2019."
    Data Scientist - Sky (Visitor)
  • "I’m here to learn about all emerging technologies, get an insight into the developments in the technology world. I think around Cloud and Machine Learning and AI are all big areas to cover so I think being able to get high level insights from the presentation available is important. I will be coming back next year as well."
    Senior Director - Ralph Lauren (Visitor)
