GEC Media Group and Global CIO Forum felicitated 250+ CIOs and technology leaders during the concluding second day of the sixth World CIO 200 Summit at the Grand Fourwings Convention Hotel in Bangkok. The summit revolved around the theme of LeadX or leading through a transformation with a focus on borderless technologies, fearless ambitions, and limitless leadership. It was attended by CIOs and technology experts from across 40 countries.
A fast-evolving global market and ever-changing customer needs require businesses to quickly adapt and transform themselves. However, with digital becoming the way of doing business, enterprises need dynamic technology leaders to lead the change.
The World CIO 200 Summit also serves as a multi-country felicitation platform to recognise the achievements of digital leaders and the hardest taskmasters who have brought transformative changes in the IT infrastructure of their organisations. Overall, awards were presented to technology leaders from UAE, India, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Bahrain, the USA, Egypt, and Pakistan.
World CIO 200 Awards
The award ceremony began with the presentation of the World CIO 200 Awards to recognise the achievements of CIOs and technology leaders driving enterprise-wide IT infrastructure adoption to drive change and growth.
The Hall of Fame
In line with GEC Media Group’s 10th-celebrations, the summit also felicitated technology leaders with more than three decades of active career, having stood the test of time and emerged as role models for the industry. The Hall of Fame awards were presented to 14 legends of the CIO World for leading their organisations through their technology and digital transformation journey.
DX Inspire Awards
Digital transformation does not necessarily mean the technological transformation that an organisation embarks upon. It includes much more effort at the departmental and organisational levels, with all stakeholders working towards a single goal by unifying people and processes.
DX Inspire 2022 Awards were presented to 10 projects that redefined digital transformation to its core. Awards were also presented to three path-breaking IT solution providers for transforming customer experience with their cutting-edge solutions.

As a curtain raiser to the GCC Security Symposium and CISO Awards Roadshow in 2023, twenty-five CISOs and security heads from the GCC region were presented with the Middle East CISO Conclave Awards for their vision, approach, and tenacity to execute security projects despite challenges.
