Welcome to the 16th edition of the European CIO Annual Conference


The two-day meeting is the yearly flagship event of the European CIO Association. The European CIO Association (“EuroCIO”) is the pre-eminent not-for-profit, vendor independent structure created by CIOs for CIOs offering a peer-level, year-round platform for communication and exchange between European Chief Information Officers as well as close interaction with institutions such as the European Commission, regulatory bodies and the wider ICT community.

The EuroCIO Annual Conference brings together each year 100 CIOs from large European organisations, to discuss, network and exchange on strategic topics in a unique setting.
