CanadianCIO Innovation Summit 2016

September 24 -26, 2016

J.W. Marriott : The Rosseau, Muskoka Resort & Spa

Set at a luxury resort in beautiful Muskoka, this year’s Summit focused on digital transformation and featured interactive sessions exploring the options available to CIOs to shape the future. Whether it was an engaging presentation on blockchain, an animated discussion about the talent deficit or an exploration of the connected world of the new digital customer, the 25 CIOs in attendance participated with gusto. The 2.5 day seminar may not have solved all the problem facing organizations girding for the coming digital transformation storm, but no one left without at least one actionable item and a new cadre of colleagues with whom they can now bounce ideas.

Please explore the stories, videos and photo galleries that document the Cogeco Peer 1 sponsored event. We look forward to building on the relationships created during the Summit to fuel inspired content and events throughout the year.
