The 21st Annual CIO Summit will be in Austin, Texas


Strategy, Innovation, Leadership

The CIO Summit is a two-day conference that offers a unique combination of networking, program and immersive social events for C-level technology executives. Participation is limited to the “who’s who” of technology leaders at major hotels, casinos, cruise lines, management and timeshare companies, allowing the industry's best, small peer networking experience. Launched in 2002, the CIO Summit has grown every year - gathering more than 400 hospitality CIOs in 21 years.

The Summit is an exclusive, invitation-only conference with a strong focus on the CIO role. Invitations have been sent out.

Interactive attendee-driven session content focuses on four key areas:

  • Career/personal/leadership development
  • Developing technology strategy as a platform for success
  • The business impact of technology
  • Private exposés into specific technology disciplines

There is no cost to attend. Attendees are only responsible for air transportation and accommodations - all other costs are taken care of - from a driver who picks you up at the airport, all meals, events and registration fees, to when we drop you at the airport to catch your plane home.

With hours dedicated exclusively to peer-to-peer networking, participants share stories, best practices, discuss and debate business and technology issues they are facing, and validate important decisions. Attendees often arrive with a list of things they want to bounce off colleagues. At the CIO Summit, the fact that you are competitors simply doesn't exist for two days. Connecting is priority No. 1.
