Summary

This year’s CIO Summit will bring three days packed with masterclasses, networking opportunities and presentations in a virtual setting.

Between Tuesday 22nd and Thursday 24th September, industry leaders and their peers will have the opportunity to hear from high-profile CIO speakers, take part in masterclasses and tune in to interactive Q&A sessions and expert panel discussions.

This year’s CIO Summit will cover three core themes: navigating the new normal; the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace; and the ever-changing role of technology leadership and the CIO role.

The virtual format of this year’s CIO Summit will enable attendees to engage with their peers from any remote location through a dedicated platform. Delegates will also be able to network with their peers in real time in a virtual Networking Lounge.

CIO UK is pleased to announce that data-to-everything platform, Splunk, will be headlining the CIO Summit for 2020 with more exciting partners to be announced over the coming weeks.
