SIM CIO Breakfast Roundtable

  • mHUB 965 West Chicago Avenue Chicago, IL, 60642 United States (map)

Beyond the hype, exciting and real advances are being made in areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Applied/Machine Learning, IoT, 3D Printing and Robotics.  You don't have to be in a product or manufacturing industry to leverage these technologies in your industry.

As the premier network of Senior IT Leaders, the Chicago Society of Information Management (SIM) invites you to join us at an exclusive invitation only event for CIO's to share their experiences with these technologies and the impact on their industries and businesses.

This event will be held on Friday October 20, 2017 at mHub - Chicago's first innovation center focused on physical product development and manufacturing that fosters connections between local manufacturers, university researchers, and Chicago's entrepreneurial community.  Come and  explore this interesting innovation space in Chicago, and join with our discussion leaders, Jim MacLennan, SVP & CIO IDEX, Michael Kennaugh, VP & CIO - Reinhart Foodservice and Andrew Guzman,  Vice President & CTO for the Americas - HCL to share and learn what Chicagoland CIO's are doing in these spaces - we'll have a broad spectrum of perspectives that are shared along the journey from conception and design, to implementation and impact to a company's business.
