The SINC Executive IT Leader Dinners are a chance for our existing and new CIO community to come together and break bread, while participating in an open format discussion about challenges facing the C-level suite in today’s economy.
In addition to open discussion, these Dinners allow you, a top IT Executive, to meet and network with other IT professionals from across the region. Not only will you experience a great event and riveting IT discussion, you will also dine at some of the country’s top restaurants. SINC also provides a unique experience at the beginning of each event: champagne sabering, wine tonging and wine or bourbon tastings are just a few of our most recent pre-dinner experiences.
