The role of a CIO is one of the most criticalone in today’s business and industry. Today, CIOs hold the future of innovation, productivity and competitiveness in their hands. At the GLOBAL CIO FORUM, we not only provide our members with an exchange forum for best IT leadership strategies and practices to enhance business results, but we are also developing a strong voice to ensure that CIOs are represented at key industry and government decision tables. In other words: Integrate. Influence. Impact.
The GLOBAL CIO FORUM represents IT Executives and CIOs globally. Currently working in META region and with expansion plans globally, the GLOBAL CIO FORUM is a non-profit community of CIOs and IT leaders whose mission is to facilitate networking, sharing of best practices and executive development, and to collaborate on issues faced by the CIOs/IT Executives.
The CIO 200 - TECHtalk and CIO Awards is a one-of-its kind initiative taken by any media house in the region. The event is a multi-country CIO felicitation ceremony that recognizes the achievements of the ‘Digital leaders’ of today. The CIO 200 Awards is not a competition but a celebration, that celebrates the amazing lives of the CIOs and their career span.
Upon completion of the roadshow, The CIO 200 would be bringing out an Annual CIO Coffee Table book that would feature the final and Top 200 CIOs (These would be chosen from the CIOs who we have felicitated in all the countries and the best among them would be chosen for the book, based on the valuation of the project and nomination details submitted). The coffee book would not only have the profiling of the CIOs, but also talk about their major projects and contributions towards the IT ecosystem. This would be the Go-to-CIO book for IT vendors and solution providers.
The ultimate branding and solution showcase platform
At The CIO 200 Techtalk, we decided to take the ‘presentation’ factor a notch higher.
A call out to the technology vendors and solution providers! Bring your best solutions to the table for a 15 mins lively presentation. The first five minutes will be all yours to present how hard hitting your solutions are for the regional organizations and why you should be their ‘Go-to-partner’. The next 10 minutes, a jury of 4 CIOs (who come from 4 different sectors) would put forward their mindset and questions.
Isn’t that the platform you always needed? How we can make it better and customized?
Let us know your focus sectors/verticals for the quarter and we will create a blend of CIOs heading those sectors and put them in the panel for a live Q&A with you. Reaching out to the target audience just became more relevant.
Muster up your solutions and take up the ‘power panel’ and get prepared to answer some real time questions by the leading
CIOs of the country.
Some of the Major Verticals Include
No attendance is wasted, no time is ill-spent at CIO 200.
The market is abuzz and saturated with tech events every second day. The mailbox of the CIOs and IT authorities are cluttered with invitations to tech events around the world. So, why go to CIO 200? Why CIO 200 is not just another event on the roaster?
Well, the reason is quite simple. We are widening the knowledge horizons. CIO 200 aims to draw CIOs and IT decision makers from all over the META region and give them a platform, wherein they not only come to the event, but also stand a chance to bring along their case studies and showcase them here, in Dubai.
We will make it difficult to spot a bored attendee fiddling with his phone.
