The biggest congress in Europe for technology managers.
500 people attended the last edition. They expect to surpass in 2023 with national and international technological references from TopCon, SwipeGuide, Inditex, Universia Santander and Factorial, among others.
In 2019 the edtech GeeksHubs started the CTO Summit congress and from that moment, it became the biggest congress in Europe for CTO, VP of Engineering and their IT teams.
The congress, which in 2022 brought together 500 technology managers, addresses the technological challenges of the sector. And it works in three lines of action: innovative technology and for social good, talent management in IT teams and business for CTOs.
For two days, there will be presentations on Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, UX/UI, Data, DevOps, IoT, Virtual Reality, Robotics, Industry, Digital Transformation, Technological innovation, IT Management and Tech Talent. From a practical perspective, all this is so that the assistant can apply in your organization.
In 2023, it will be the fourth edition of the congress; there will be more than twenty presentations with professionals from Spain and other parts of the world, such as Sue Li, CTO at SwipeGuide; Marta Rivera, Data & Analytics at Inditex; Rolando Angelini, Director of Engineering at Factorial; Jose Manuel de la Chica, CTO at Santander Universities and at Universia Holding; or Irene Hernández, founder and CEO at Gataca.
The event’s trajectory positions it as a relevant forum for meeting other technological leaders and establishing alliances. Chaume Sánchez, CEO of GeeksHubs and the organization of the CTO Summit, explains that “it is a unique congress due to the high level of quality of the presentations, but also to network and talk face to face with people who understand your day-to-day problems and give you ideas and challenges.”
CTO Summit will be in Valencia (Spain) on May 26 and 27. This city is the third most important in the country and focuses on innovation and startups. Furthermore, Valencia is the best city in the world to live (InterNations ranking), European Green Capital 2024, finalist European Capital of Innovation 2022 and World Design Capital 2022.
In addition, the positioning and brand of the congress has led the organization to address a new challenge: giving visibility to the role of technology directors with the GeeksHubs Award for Best CTO 2023. This award also tries to be a recognition to the professional who has spent years humanizing the technological figure and creating references that promote and reinforce the STEM professions (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Topcon, BigBuy, Codurance and Capchase support CTO Summit. As well as Dekalabs, HP, Mercadona IT, OkMobility, Plug and Play, Seidor Nubersia, Slimbook, Allfunds and Stickermule. And it is organized by GeeksHubs, a company that, since 2012, has promoted technological talent through training and the specialized selection of IT profiles.
Most of the sessions are in Spanish, and there are two sessions in English:
