About Summit

Media & Entertainment CIO Summit enters in its 6th year now. Since the beginning, the Summit has set new benchmarks and has pioneered in upping the standard of contents, interactions and convergence. It has been the pioneering platform for M & E CIOs to interact, exchange ideas, learn and implement the learning. It is indeed a unique, one-of-its-kind platform in India bringing together senior IT decision makers, strategic thinkers, consulting partners, and technology providers - all under one roof - for a constructive dialogue aimed at actionable insights.

The 6th edition of Summit will present an opportunity for its stakeholders to not only talk about the future of the industry and its outcomes but also the challenges facing the industry at large and CIOs in specific to deal with the competitive business landscape.
