The CIO Initiative is thrilled to announce that the 5th Annual CIO Initiative Summit will be held September 29-30, 2021 at the Ambassador Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. 

Our CIO Initiative Summits bring together technology leaders from various organizations and industries for a day and a half of best practice sharing, networking, and collaboration.  This exclusive, invitation only event provides an intimate setting for technology executives to come together to collaborate on innovative and effective strategies to rise and stay ahead of the technology leadership curve. The Summit can be best described as round-table meets conference. There is no vendor participation in the program and no vendor showcase. The agenda is highly interactive and developed with the participating CIOs for the CIOs.  Summit attendees range from tenured CxO’s with experience from the largest corporations to those who are early in their CIO journey.

As with our previous summits, this year we will be hosting our event at a location that provides a unique conference experience. We believe the destination and facility is part of the overall experience. Most of us are travelers and have attended many conferences in the standard 4 sound soaked walls. The CIO Initiative are unique and different . We ensure that hotel accommodations are first class, the conference venue is unique, and the food and service will be amazing. This year we are adding a unique dinner event, bringing the live KC Jazz music of Lonnie McFadden to our dinner. We cannot wait to see you there and share the experience with you.

If you are interested in attending (or would like to recommend your CIO/CTO for consideration), please email Laura Ayres, Executive Director, at

Note – The Kansas City Summit was originally scheduled for May 12-13 but was postponed due to continuing COVID-19 concerns.
