GATHER AN AUDIENCE OF LOCAL I.T. LEADERS
IT leaders value CIO dinners as a platform to collaborate as they lack the static and time commitment of an event or conference
73% of surveyed enterprise CIOs and IT leaders in 2013 had atteneded a CIO dinner within the past 12 months.
THE BUSY CIO
Today's CIO is busier then ever, afterall IT is now at the core of business and not just a tool. For this reason alone there are a record number of IT solution providers that offer technology to aid organizations in running more lean, efficicent and profitable enterprises.
The CIO is becoming even more critical at how they balance time between investigating new opportunities and executing current endeavors. Our 2013 survey polled IT leaders at how they collaborate with an external network to explore new innovations. We found that 73% attended a CIO dinner in the past 12 months, many preferred this method as it required less time commitment and engaged more dialogue.
EVENTS / CONFERENCES
Although still an asset the luxurious gathering of IT leaders for 2 or 3 day events and cruises are not as well attended as they were years ago. IT leaders need to carefully weigh up the ROI on their time - cost versus opportunity. Less CIOs travel out of state for an event and only a small percentage spend more than a day at an event.
Local association chapters similar to Society for Information Management have seen an increase in local activity based on the need of CIOs for collaboration within the immediate community - a result from the constraints on time and travel from within the Office of the CIO.
YOUR INVITATION IS AT THE BOTTOM
CIO Dinners are nothing new; IT solution providers have been hosting private dinners as prospecting tools for years; unfortunately many lack the numbers or titles they planned on. This is simply because invites from Solution Providers have grown the stigma of Time Share Vacations... "by attending what am I getting myself into", also attendance is a numbers game and few companies have the resources to gain those numbers.
“Our team really enjoyed the event. It was well organized, located in a beautiful venue, and most importantly, it inspired many valuable conversations.”
