Set at the beautiful Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London's West End, the 2017 CIO 100 saw more than 70 CIOs, IT directors and business technology leaders from across the country come together in celebration.
Panels discussing the CIO role, its challenges and moving beyond the CIO remit were a particular attraction, with panellists Richard Corbridge, Rachel Dunscombe, Dylan Roberts, Ian Cox, Cait O'Riordan, David Henderson, Alison FitzGerald and Shirine Khoury-Haq all weighing in.
We've rounded up the best tweets of the night.
