Pakistan to Host Inaugural Global CIO Awards

For the very first time, Pakistan is set to host the Global CIO Awards and the esteemed World CIO Summit, an event designed to honor exceptional professionals in the digital realm. This significant occasion is scheduled to take place during one of the sessions within the 23rd ITCN Asia Conference and Exhibition on September 2, 2023, in Karachi.

The World CIO Forum, the representative body for IT professionals worldwide, annually organizes this international event in one of its member countries. It serves as a platform to acknowledge emerging and high-achieving technology leaders who will subsequently compete on the global stage at the grand summit.

The inaugural Global CIO Summit is a momentous occasion aimed at celebrating the accomplishments of Pakistan’s 50 outstanding CIOs. From this pool of leaders, the top five will emerge as qualifiers from among the fifty CIOs representing member countries. These top achievers will be rewarded with prestigious awards during the upcoming event in Baku, Azerbaijan later this year, as stated by Umair Nizam.
