In February 2013 we convened the first-ever CDO Summit – curated specifically for Chief Digital Officers and Chief Data/Analytics Officers – when just a few hundred people globally held that title.

Today, thousands of executives have those responsibilities, addressing the challenges and opportunities arising from AI, analytics, big data, the cloud, digital transformation, and social and mobile media.

Our gatherings include the best digital, data, and analytics strategists and practitioners on earth, in intimate, collegial, and supportive environments designed to encourage networking, learning, and knowledge-sharing.

We have produced CDO Summits in New York; London; Amsterdam; Sydney; Toronto; Washington, DC; Istanbul; Tel Aviv; Tokyo; Madrid; and Zurich.

If you are tasked with mastering the strategies and tactics to achieve and surpass your digital business objectives, be sure to secure your seat at a CDO Summit today.
