Awards at CIO 100 Symposium

Deadline extended to February 9: Applications will be accepted through 8 pm ET.

The CIO 100 Symposium is pleased to honor recipients of two awards recognizing outstanding achievement with technology: the CIO 100 Award and the CIO Hall of Fame. The conference celebrates their innovation and leadership at a gala dinner and award ceremony. This celebration welcomes all conference participants as the capstone of the event.

An acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence in business technology for more than 30 years, the Annual CIO 100 Awards celebrate 100 organizations and their IT teams for using technology in innovative ways to deliver business value. Since the CIO 100 award is given to companies rather than individuals, it is an honor everyone on the IT staff can take pride in receiving. The winning companies have used IT in various creative and strategic ways — to create competitive advantage, optimize business processes, enable growth or improve relationships with customers. Nominations for a CIO 100 award may be submitted by CIOs, technology project leaders, IT team members, vendor company executives, and internal or external PR representatives. After an initial review by CIO’s editors, each online application is evaluated by judges chosen from a panel of more than 50 external judges, which includes industry experts, academics, business executives and former CIOs. The winners will be recognized by their peers and colleagues at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards ceremony, Aug. 13-15, 2018 at The Terranea resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

CIO’s Hall of Fame is a personal leadership award for outstanding career achievements in business technology management. The Hall of Fame honors the men and women whose work demonstrates sustained success in mid-sized to large enterprises. Nominees must be currently serving as CIOs and have at least 10-15 years’ experience in CIO roles. Along with significant career accomplishments, the CIOs inducted into the Hall of Fame demonstrate the kind of substantial business impact, technology vision and inspirational leadership that advances the CIO role and creates a positive influence on the IT profession.

2018 nominations are now open through February 9, 2018. Winners will be recognized at the annual CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony taking place in August 2018 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
