UAE

Continuing the legacy of the past 8 years, The World CIO 200 Summit 2024 is coming to Uae.

This year, our focus is on being Mighty, Principled, and Protective—embodying the qualities of an ELEPHANT. Known for its unwavering commitment, an elephant sees a task through to completion once it sets its mind to it. We believe these qualities are essential for IT leaders to thrive in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing business landscape.

The World CIO 200 2024 roadshow is designed to help IT leaders develop and enhance these qualities. Through a series of workshops, knowledge-sharing sessions, thought-provoking life experiences, keynote speeches, panel discussions, and networking events, we will explore the latest trends and innovations in IT leadership.
