CIODAY is the annual network event for digital decision-makers in business, government, and everything in between. Not necessarily about the latest tech, this event brings together the community of CIOs, CDOs, and CTOs to share ideas, use cases, and best practices in an informal but luxurious setting. This year’s edition is all about resilience, digital progress and digital strength. Our choice of nominees for the CIO of the Year Award and the new Tech Hero Award reflects this.
