Always a pleasure to be part of [...] CART events, particularly with brands like Wakefern. CART provides a definitive link between us as tech creators and brands that are looking to explore new ways of working. 

Sterling and his team did an outstanding job organizing a technology day event that my company, Zest Labs, participated in. The event was well organized and well executed. Information about the event was well communicated and it went very smoothly and with positive results. Their team is great to work with and we look forward to working with them on future events.
