Mark Tuesday 1st November 2011into your calendars for this full day event. For this year's Summit we've chosen the Renaissance St Pancras Grand, London. This is an excellent venue for the event, towering above the Eurostar train terminal it's an exciting blend of new and traditional. 

As with last year's CIO Summit the team and I are putting together an event that provides CIOs with insight, advice and peer-to-peer guidance to help you drive organisational business and technology strategies. 

The editorial team, the CIO Executive Council and CIOs that have committed their time are helping to produce a an event that will address the challenges of the fragile recovery and how CIOs are exploiting new strategies and technologies to deliver extra value to their businesses. There will be presentations by your peers how technology such as mobile apps and consumerisation are transforming the technology function in today's businesses.
