Why Join CIO Institute

Global CIO Institute provides a platform for executives and suppliers to come together and discuss the growing trends in corporate IT while also proposing solutions, guidance and insights to digital business leaders looking to improve productivity and growth in their organisations.


Models of Engagement

Our end-user driven media campaigns work for you via events, online content and intelligence reports to ensure that you benefit beyond the events and boardrooms themselves. Our four models of engagement are: CIO Institute Events, Digital Boardroom Series, Bespoke Digital Boardrooms, and Evening Gatherings.

As leaders of executive communities across UK and EMEA, we are working to elevate peer collaboration through an assortment of private, invitation-only gatherings.


We invite our trusted partners – limited to strategic providers that are making a tangible impact in our enterprises – to join our exclusive meetings to network and share best practices with a community of leading C-suite executives. By coming together, we foster the power and strength of strategic partnerships that are critical to our success as leaders.
