The 2014 CIO 100 will be announced at an exclusive reception event on the evening of April 3, 2014. Entries have been collected and the CIO editorial team and judging panel are currently reading the submissions.

The CIO 100 networking event will take place at the Renaissance St Pancras, the recently relaunched hotel that backs on to the St Pancras International Eurostar rail terminal.

CIO Editor in Chief Mark Chillingworth said: “Last year’s CIO 100 event was an incredible opportunities for the leading CIOs in or from the UK to network and share ideas.

“The Renaissance St Pancras hotel is the ideal backdrop for celebrating the CIO 100. This hotel has transformed itself from being considered for demolition to now one of the most exclusive hotels in London. With the Eurostar terminal there, this is a location that has the story that so many CIOs in the CIO 100 tell, that of understanding cultural, commercial and economic needs and using the latest methods to reinvent these needs so they remain relevant in the modern world.”

The CIO 100 is compiled each year to reveal the most transformative CIOs in or from the UK. CIOs that are driving business change, process improvement, enabling greater collaboration and innovating in new market opportunities join this exclusive group each year.

CIOs selected to be included in the 2014 CIO 100 will receive an invite to this exclusive event, which only CIOs will be invited to in early March, but Editor Chillingworth, urges those that applied to be considered for the CIO 100 to keep the evening of April 3, 2014 free. The 2011 CIO Summit was held at the Renaissance St Pancras.
