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 15th | 9:00am - 3:30pm
Dallas, Texas


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.

Can I refer my Colleague?

We know that leading an innovative enterprise can fall under so many areas; if your senior peers lead and strategize on these relevant disciplines, we would love to know. Refer them to this discussion.

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.

Thank you for the email. I enjoyed attending and found it to be very informative. I would like to participate in the future, so please keep me in mind.
I thought the moderator did a great job, and I enjoyed his ability to keep things moving, to summarize, and to relate to all attendees.

- ClubCorp USA, Inc.


CIODallas was a day filled with creative, new ideas and plenty of opportunities to meet with peers from the area. As a newcomer to the Dallas area, I was able to make valuable contacts and broaden my network of colleagues. It can be difficult to schedule this much time out of the office, but it's worth every minute.

- Salvation Army


I found CIODallas to be an informative way to hear perspectives outside of my industry. Gatherings like this not only help educate on current technology trends and solutions, but help connect the dots between technology leaders.
I enjoyed the moderator and felt he did a good job moving the day along and interviewing the panels.
