IDC NZ and Conferenz announce new ownership for 8th Annual CIO Summit 2014
Posted on 2-Jul-2013 15:04. | Tags Filed under: News.



The ownership of the annual CIO Summit and CIO Summit Awards will revert back to IDC New Zealand and Conferenz, the original owners of the Summit.

Following Fairfax Media’s resignation from the licenses of CIO, Computerworld, PC World and Reseller News, it has withdrawn from its involvement in the New Zealand Summit.

“We started the journey of the CIO Summit together with IDC over eight years ago, before we invited Fairfax to join us.” says Steve Scott, owner of Conferenz. “Fairfax has been a fantastic partner over the past few years. Going forward, we will be taking a broader, multi-platform approach across various business and technology channels. We are still assessing new partnership opportunities.”

The CIO Summit has become renowned throughout the Asia Pacific region as the conference that has secured such heavy-hitting speakers as: Tim Campos the CIO of Facebook, Steve Rubinow the ex CIO of the New York Stock Exchange and Chris Vein the Chief Innovation Officer of the World Bank. It is the largest gathering of CIOs and senior IT executives in the Asia Pacific region with over 500 participants at the conference and 700 attending the CIO Summit Awards this year. The annual awards of CIO of the Year and Lifetime Contribution are eagerly anticipated each year.

Ullrich Loeffler, Country Manager of IDC says “We have had a dream team working on the CIO Summit and Awards. They have achieved a high level of collaboration to which we attribute its success. The Summit has become an integral part of the local CIO community and we are committed to continuing our investment to bring world class speakers and content to New Zealand.”

The 2014 CIO Summit and Awards will take place on 11th & 12th June 2014 at SkyCity – Auckland, with plans to further grow the event and associated coverage across multi-platform business and technology channels.

Conferenz continues to work with Fairfax on the CFO Summit and CEO Summit.
