2020 was the year of digital transformation and disruption, and events sector was no exception. IDC New Zealand and Conferenz delivered the annual CIO Summit as a fully digital event on the virtual CIO Stadium in August. With 1313 registrations, 3700 session views, 13726 booth visits, it was a very different experience for the CIO community.
The organisers are proud to be announcing that the 13th annual CIO Summit will be taking place on the 23-24 November at AUT Events Space in Auckland. The 2021 event will be a hybrid event providing both physical and virtual elements.
The event will bring back the elements of the CIO Summit – keynote sessions at the plenary, the virtual seminars on the tech pass, roundtable sessions and the Awards night.
