Become a Sponsor

The CIO Peer Forum event is strategic as a non-traditional exhibit-style trade event.

As a CIO Peer Forum sponsor, your representatives enjoy the same program and content as our members. They sit in the audience and have a unique networking opportunity over two days with senior Canadian IT and business leaders – with a limited number of vendor representatives in attendance. This interactive format creates an environment that offers attending sponsors the opportunity to connect with this leadership community to develop and build lasting business relationships.

2018 sponsorsThe 2019 CIO Peer Forum represents a community of IT industry peers combining forces with experts and thought leaders to explore, discuss, learn and ultimately challenge the way business is done.

This year our Leadership Tracks are entitled Integrating Digital, Real Bimodal and Innovative IT, leaving plenty of scope for addressing emerging technologies, innovation, security, change management, talent management and much more. Speakers, panelists, and peer discussion will explore numerous facets of the IT industry – from the big-picture theory, strategies, case studies, and best practices.

The CIO Peer Forum allows sponsors to reach and interact with a meaningful and interested audience of IT leaders – both the decision-makers and stewards of technology-based solutions with an opportunity to showcase their brand and build long-term relationships with this pivotal market audience.

Our technology sponsors bring tremendous value to each of our member’s organizations and will strengthen their connections to this community at this premier event.
