Welcome to the 9th Annual Portland 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.

Leadership Library

Premier strives to make profitable connections and we strongly believe these connections can result in growth and learning. Sometimes, just reading the words of others can be inspiring and educational. Therefore, Premier is delighted to announce our Leadership Library hosted by Barnes & Noble at many of 2016/2017 Premier CIO Forums! The Leadership Library will feature books both written and recommended by many of our past and present keynote speakers, along with recommendations from our Advisory Council's. This is a great opportunity, as an attendee, to engage one-on-one with Keynote speakers at the event. Author signing's available upon request.

I believe the Premier CIO Forum has the most informed speakers available addressing issues that are common among all business sectors. It is an event you can count on leaving with new ideas and contacts for carrying them through.
