What others think of Information Operations Global:
"I think IO Global this year has actually been a step-change better than the last few I've attended... What we've covered has been a wide-ranging and most interesting."Lt Col James Hancock, JIOTAT
"The Conference was outstanding! Most of the topics were relevant to my job and the speakers were world class. The combination of speakers and the ability to meet and "network" with our international partners allowed me to gain months worth of knowledge and experience in just 4 days."Scott Wetzel, USAF
"It was well balanced. This conference is always valuable as it is a unique forum in which to learn how IO is doing and where we are heading."Deputy Director, PsyOps, Canadian Forces
"Must attend event for IO practitioners to stay abreast, learn new and share own knowledge/application. I have 13 years of US Army experience, multiple combat tours and have written extensively on IO but I was very satisfied with what I learned. Even experienced IO practitioners need to refresh their skills and knowledge."Norman Emery
