CIO POWER LIST 2018 was held across May 4 and 5 at the Conrad Pune.

These include the CIOs online reputation, business publications and technology magazines, achievements, awards, honours and recognitions won, a random sampling of social media engagements, and a nation-wide survey of CIO peers. Additionally there are inputs from the CIO himself/herself on their key moments in the last year.
