For over 25 years, the ORBIE Awards have recognized technology executives for outstanding leadership.
At the National ORBIE Awards, previous ORBIE winners are given the opportunity to compete for the title of National ORBIE Winner, with winners announced live at the National ORBIE Awards Dinner on the final evening of Converge24.
About the ORBIE Awards
The ORBIE Awards is the premier technology executive recognition program in the country, honoring chief information officers and chief information security officers who demonstrated excellence in technology leadership. CIOs & CISOs are recognized in multiple categories, based on the size and scope of their organization and responsibilities.
Meet the Finalists
Finalists and winners are selected by an independent peer review process, led by prior ORBIE recipients, for:
- Leadership and management effectiveness
- Business value created by technology innovation
- The size and scope of responsibilities
- Engagement in industry and community endeavors
This live, national event is hosted on the Imaginate platform, where prior year national winners announce live the 2024 National ORBIE Awards finalists.
The most exclusive event in the ORBIE Awards program is the Finalist Dinner. This event, themed “The Most Interesting CIOs in the World”, is a multi-course experience, with a chef-introduced menu and sommelier-selected wine pairings, led by CIO finalists and attended by CIO & CISO members and select sponsor executives.
