It’s time to mark your diaries for our packed schedule of both virtual and (hopefully) in-person events and awards coming this year in the UK.

2022 UK event Calendar

This year we have launched a packed calendar of events, with new topics to explore, more awards and the safe return of in-person gatherings.

16-17 March 2022: CSO Security Summit

In March, we host the CSO Security Summit with the theme: Leading Together. From how to hack your cyber security culture, to determining what type of CISO you are, this two-day event should leave you inspired and ready to explore the new cyber security frontier. The event will be held virtually on the 16th–17th March.

27-28 April 2022: CIO Cloud Transformation Summit

Our first CIO UK event of the year will be the CIO Cloud Transformation Summit, taking place virtually from 27th–28th April.

The majority of IT and business leaders will soon be running companies that are more digital than physical. This event looks to address how technology leaders can continue to maximise cloud capabilities to build new, more agile business systems, continue driving the digital enterprise, address new customer requirements and support resilient operations.

NEW: 16 June 2022: Next CIO

CIO UK is launching Next CIO, a new awards programme which will recognise and celebrate the best rising stars across the UK IT sector. Through interviews at CIO UK, awards, and mentoring opportunities, Next CIO will help aspiring IT leaders develop their careers, build their networks, and improve their skill sets. As our first in-person event of 2022, the Next CIO awards will take place on Thursday 16th June in London, where we will shine a spotlight on some of the Next CIO cohort.

We are now accepting applications. To enter yourself or apply on behalf of one of your team members, please click here. The deadline for submissions is Monday 21st March
