By requiring RSVP’s we can closely watch the list of attendees. The events are for technology executives and financiers. Our target is to limit attendance of service providers to <10%. With that said, it’s important to remember that some of the people attending wear more than one hat. While they may be a service provider, they may also have a tremendous desire to contribute to the high technology community. This includes CXO Connect Advisor Members (among others). Because of this, these attendees are typically not included in the 10% limit.
