Welcome to the 16th Annual Raleigh Premier CIO Forum

Attendees across the region have come to expect a dynamic agenda with relevant, up-to-the-minute topics and exciting speakers who will share their wealth of knowledge and experience, helping you gain practical insights into your business challenges. The Premier CIO Forum includes powerful keynotes, informative breakouts, discussions with subject-matter experts, and cutting-edge solution providers.

Our partner, The Society for Information Management (SIM), is an organization intended for Senior IT Executives to discuss and share experiences related to technology and business structure. The group’s mission is to provide an open forum, devoid of sales and marketing solicitations, for area executives with IT decision-making responsibility to network and share their experiences. The Premier CIO Forum adheres to all guidelines which prohibit solicitation by anyone, except for the requested solution providers who have been hand-picked by the Executive Advisory Council of CIOs and Senior IT Executives specific to this region.

We have worked diligently to put together a stimulating and focused agenda, bringing together experts, visionaries and professionals from the IT industry. We look forward to sharing this exciting conference with you.


The RTP Premier CIO Forum remains one of my favorite events each year. The program is always strong, and it's robust enough to make it tough to decide which sessions to attend. Unlike so many other conferences, the "by invitation only" approach to vendor/sponsor involvement creates exactly the right dynamic for information sharing.
