What IT Leaders Say

They love it. Read what the previous attendees had to say!

Tomorrow’s industry leaders are already using technology to gain and maintain a competitive advantage over their peers — and putting it at the forefront of their business. Now is the time to either join them in embracing digital transformation, or be overtaken by those that do.....

By invitation only these leaders will share directions over an epicurean meal. An opportunity to compare, contrast and debate paths over conversations that just don't happen within the confines of the office or static of an event.



Date & Time:
Thursday, December 2nd 9:30am - 5:15pm
Toronto, Ontario


IT leaders collaborate in a day of thought-leading exchange as we examine directions from within the Office of the CIO; all under the umbrella of riveting keynotes, revealing panels, engaging round-tables and unparalleled networking.

Every year at CXOsync we explore directions from within the Office of the CIO; what are these strategists planning and what paths are they taking? Through these discussions we're able to understand their paths and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like IBM, Microsoft and CISCO to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest.
