What's It About?

Stay on top of your game! Explore the strategic choices that will shape the future at the confluence of technology and business at IDC’s CIO Summit. Forward-looking CIOs, executives, industry leaders, and IDC experts will reveal strategies, tactics, and technologies that make the difference.

IDC summits also are exciting. High-impact speakers will provoke you to envision the future. CIOs, business executives, and tech suppliers debate how to extract the most from technology. Peers engage in conversations about strategies for digital innovation, customer experience, automated business models, and digital platforms.

The exclusivity, the professional stories shared by industry pioneers, and the interactivity of the Summit all provide rich inspiration on how to grow professionally and personally and how to elevate the role of CIO from enabler to innovator.

Finally, the agenda is yours. We work directly with CIOs to ensure it provides the expert advice, practical solutions, inspiration, and networking opportunities you are looking for.
