Debate: The Cyber War Threat Has Been Grossly Exaggerated
In June 2010, IQ2 U.S. and Neustar, a global leader in the mobile communications industry, partnered to present the debate The Cyber War Threat Has Been Grossly Exaggerated. Neustar’s vision was to hold a debate on the topic, but not just anywhere—on their home turf at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Neustar executives and valued clients attended the private post-debate policy dinner along with the panel of debaters and VIP guests from government, media and the private sector. Above, examples of onsite promotion, and debate opening remarks.
