CIOs must manage not only for today, but for tomorrow, and for years into the future. This implies a constant job of predicting what is going to happen next -- at your company, in technology advancements, in competitive marketplace conditions, and more. Our Predictions Panelists are asked to take the stage and share insights they foresee for 2020. Which Prediction will crown the next #ITpsychic?

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, February 20th 9:30am - 5:30pm
Sheraton Grand Los Angeles


On February 20th, 60 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.

" If we do not shares our stories and shine a sight on inequalities, things will not change. " - Ellen Pao
Fostering the next generation of Women in Technology; hear their stories of leadership and diversity.

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.
