2020 CIO 100 final deadline - February 17th deadline for CIOs and CTOs to be part of annual celebration of technology leaders


We have made the sad but, we believe, responsible decision to postpone the announcement of this year's CIO 100 and the subsequent celebration dinner until 19th November. This is based on the safety of attendees, sponsors and staff amidst the current outbreak of COVID-19.

The 2020 CIO 100 has already been selected by our judges and will remain set ahead of the event, which will still take place at the Corinthia hotel.

The 2020 CIO 100 final deadline of Monday 17 February is approaching and Chief Information Officers, Chief Technology Officers, Chief Digital Officers, IT Directors and equivalents invited to take part in the annual celebration and acknowledgement of the CIO role and the value senior business technology executives provide to their organisations.

They are Christine Ashton, Ian Cox, Janet Day, Trevor Didcock, Jerry Fishenden, Adizah Tejani and Edward Qualtrough. Joining the panel in 2020 is IDC CIO Advisor Chris Weston, Cristina Lago - Online Editor of CIO Asean and CIO Middle East, as well as former CIO 100 high-flyers Anna Barsby and Dave Roberts.

CIO UK Editor Edward Qualtrough said: "The CIO 100 is a showcase of CIOs as business leaders that deliver change, IT projects and customer benefits through information and technology, as well as a recognition of the unique and challenging roles CIOs play in their organisations.

"We hope you will take part and that your involvement will benefit the CIO community, and that you are able to join us at the annual CIO 100 celebration event in April 2020."
