Do I Hear $500? Top CTO Going Once, Going Twice….

What would you do with 70 CIOs and CTOs standing in a room with more than $1 billion budgeted in projects and your company has the solution for those projects? You’d bid on them, that’s what you’d do.

Wait a minute? Did you just say ‘bid’ on them? Is this some sort of auction for executive-levels to snag face-to-face time and propose how your companies might be able to collaborate?  It certainly is.

Welcome to C-Level @ A Mile High. For the past 6 years, the Colorado Technology Association, a ReadyTalk customer, has been hosting an auction of C-Level “celebrities,” as they call them, giving more than  900 technology professionals a chance to buy dedicated time with the executives at a future date. Not to mention, a spiffy package of goods to go along with the celebrity (think golf outings, dinners, a day on the slopes—just to name a few).

In a world where getting quality time, let alone face time, with decision makers can be nearly impossible, CTA has created a marketplace of these individuals that is easy to access and open to the public. Got a cloud computing solution? Or maybe you design mobile apps? Bring your A-game and best sales pitch because these executives are looking for solutions. Oh, and if you’re concerned about the selection, don’t be. We’re talking big players in the technology sphere - AT&T, CH2MHill, New Belgium, Gates, Latisys, Google, Janus Capital Group, Newmont Mining, ViaWest, DaVita, MapQuest, Vail Resorts and the list goes on.

The event has grown greatly from its first few years. This year, there is a record-setting number of registrants, C-level participants (and their budgets), and silent auction items that will make it the single biggest technology deal-making event in the state. All proceeds go toward future events through CTA, which provides amazing networking opportunities and local business collaboration with the ever-expanding tech hub in Colorado.

The environment is fast-paced. The excitement rubs off on you when the first batch of executives is opened up for bidding. It’s a unique event and well worth attending. Even our own ReadyTalk CTO, Dan Cunningham, is up on the auction block. So check out the show – even if just to network with the hundreds of other technology professionals.
