100% of sponsors from last year's inaugural CDO Summit event have returned to sponsor again this year.

"This clearly demonstrates the verifiable value and ROI that our Chief Digital Officer Summit provides to our sponsors, speakers, and attendees alike," said Mathison.

Sponsors include Acquia, Adobe, Appirio, Bloomberg, Brightcove, Chadick Ellig, Discover Digital Group, Digital Disruption, First Motion, LivePerson, Lux Digital, Metratech, Mobile Search Partners, Neo Group, ObjectFrontier Software, OSF Global Services, Rosenzweig & Company, Time Warner Inc., and TopCoder.

The inaugural 2013 CDO Summit sold out of attendee tickets, weeks in advance.

To handle the demand this year, the organizers have doubled the number of days and added twice the capacity by hosting it at Time Warner.

Despite this, the 2014 Summit is likely to sell out again.
