CIO of the Year

Digital First Lead the Way

Welcome to the CIO of the Year party!

CIO of the Year 2023 is an award that sheds light on the fantastic work that is being done in Danish organizations

This is the 18th time we find and nominate the CIO of the Year in Denmark, and it will be celebrated on June 8th in Copenhagen. We are in the process of finding the CIO of the Year 2023 and the person who for the entire year can promote themselves of being the country's best CIO and lift the legacy of the CIO of the Year 2022 Ann Fogelgren and the 17 others who ran with the award before. In addition, we have a packed program, with speeches, panels and discussions.
Why Attend?
The CIO of the Year is the day when we highlight and celebrate the good role models. It is the day where we can talk about the essential change we create from IT and how crucial it is to the continued success of our organisations. We inspire each other to do even better and are allowed to share the good stories.
