New Opportunity for Emerging Tech Vendors to Participate at Annual CIO 100 Symposium Focusing on "Innovating in the Digital Economy"

300+ IT Executives Will Attend the Conference Celebrating Technology Innovation

FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2015) -  IDG's CIO -- the executive-level IT media brand providing insight into business technology leadership -- announces the enhanced focus on emerging technologies in the enterprise at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony conference, from mobility to data/analytics, next gen security, cloud, social and other disruptive technologies. This focus aligns with CIOs' spending plans. According to the CIO Magazine Tech Poll: Economic Outlook, CIOs will increase spending on edge technologies to 45% of their tech budget in the next 1-3 years and 54% of enterprise CIOs anticipate spending more with newer technology vendors in the next year. In order to accommodate this interest and provide access to the new technologies and vendors driving innovation within the enterprise, the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony, the conference celebrating the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value, will add an Emerging Sponsor level.

More than 300 CIOs and technology executives will convene on August 9-11, 2015 in Colorado Springs, CO at the CIO 100 Symposium to hear from peers, industry leaders and technology vendors on innovative ways technology is advancing the enterprise. To expand the scope of this learning, CIO is inviting new technology vendors -- defined as established since 2005 -- to participate in the conference at the Emerging Sponsor level, to share their solutions and expand their visibility with technology purchase decision-makers.

"Technology is the vehicle that will propel enterprises ahead and CIOs want to know what new solutions and services can accelerate this transformation," said Adam Dennison, senior vice president and publisher, CIO. "The CIO 100 has always focused on innovation and we are excited to roll out this robust partnership portfolio, providing a full scope of potential partners in one place for CIOs to explore."
