The Innovation Conversation
This elite group of organizations and technology leaders will be celebrated at the annual CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony to be held August 19-21, 2019, at The Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs. The CIO 100 Symposium is the most powerful gathering of CIOs and senior IT and business executives, with an agenda built around three key pillars: IT innovation, C-suite collaboration and business impact. Conversations are focused on the most important technology trends and strategies, including expert insights from some of the top CIOs in the U.S. and worldwide.

“The CIO 100 Symposium concentrates on the most vital business and technology topics shaping today’s digital business ecosystem,” said Maryfran Johnson, IDG’s Executive Director of CIO Programs. “Our 2019 honorees have successfully experimented with cutting-edge ideas and emerging technologies to push boundaries and ultimately, deliver great business value.”

Expert Insights & Collaboration
CIO’s premier event combines general and breakout sessions, interactive workshops, roundtable discussions, and social events. This year’s agenda will be anchored by two outstanding keynote sessions.

• August 20th: “The Big Nine: How the Tech Titans and their Thinking Machines Will Change Humanity,” by Amy Webb, Author, Founder of the Future Today Institute and Professor, NYU Stern School of Business
• August 21st: “Interactive Workshop: Turning Your IT Staff into Articulate Ambassadors of the Company’s Brand,” by Kare Anderson, Author and Communications Coach

Leading tech vendors will also be providing a robust overview of what is possible for businesses in the future. The mix of IT executives, innovative companies and quality vendors creates a learning environment that is second to none. In 2019, CIO is proud to partner with an exceptional group of sponsors headlined by our Underwriting Partners, Deloitte and Google Chrome Enterprise. Additional sponsors include Cherwell, Code42, Dropbox, Informatica, NTT DATA Services, RingCentral, Unisys, Numerify, Zoom, and the CIO Executive Council / IDC.

“The symposium allows attendees to forge new business partnerships, and leave energized with unique perspectives and important skills,” remarked Adam Dennison, SVP & General Manager, IDG Events and Publisher, CIO. “The conversations that take place each year around IT innovation are truly inspiring. You’ll quickly find you’re not alone in the challenges you face or triumphs you celebrate.”

IT & Business Leadership
Joining the CIO 100 award winners at the symposium will be the 2019 CIO Hall of Fame class. All honorees will be recognized at the gala dinner and awards ceremony on the evening of August 21st. “This year, we are proud to induct 20 IT leaders into the CIO Hall of Fame for their profound contributions to the tech world,” continued Johnson. “The 2019 class is defined by excellence and their influence has been felt across the IT industry. Through their leadership and vision, each of our new Hall of Famers has played an influential role in shaping our digital future.”

About the CIO 100 Awards:
The annual CIO 100 Awards celebrate 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers. The award is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. Recipients of this year’s CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing an innovative IT and business initiative. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, the CIO team reviewed the judges’ recommendations and selected the final 100.

Coverage of the 2019 CIO 100 award-winning projects will be available online at CIO.com in the weeks and months leading up to the event and in the summer issue of CIO’s digital magazine.

About the CIO Hall of Fame Awards:
The CIO Hall of Fame was created in 1997 to spotlight 12 outstanding IT leaders who had significantly contributed to and profoundly influenced the IT discipline, the use of technology in business and the advancement of the CIO role. Ten years later, in 2007, CIO inducted its second class of honorees into the CIO Hall of Fame during CIO magazine’s 20th anniversary celebration. CIO continues to showcase this elite group of CIOs – now numbering 140 – during the CIO Hall of Fame induction ceremony. A list of all inductees can be viewed here.
