2017 Events for CIO, CTO, Chief Digital Officers, and Chief Data Officers

I was doing some research last week on 2017 events for CIO, CTO, Chief Digital Officers, Chief Data Officers, and IT leaders. I found articles on CIO.com and TechTarget with a number of events listed and then went looking at other institutions (Gartner, Forrester, CDM Media, Evanta, Argyle, HMG Strategy, O'Reilly and others) for their lists.

I focused on events in the United States (MVP) and aggregated almost 250 events targeting CIO and other data, digital, and technology leaders.

It took some time to put together what I think is a reasonable, but not comprehensive list. I then used Trifacta to merge and cleanse the data, added a dimension on "topics" and developed a Tableau dashboard to review.

Here is the CIO 2017 Events Dashboard. To use the dashboard, click on the map for your location and use the bar charts to drill down by topic, timing, and sponsor. In the grid, click on the Event Name to get to the event's website.
