The Board of Directors of the Puerto Rico IT Cluster, a group dedicated to turning the information technology industry into a pillar of economic development of the island, announced Monday it will host the CIO & IT Leadership Conference for the second consecutive year.
The event, which gathered more than 700 IT industry leaders in its first edition, will be held Mar. 20 at The Ritz Carlton San Juan and will include the participation of private enterprise, government and academia.
“The information technology industry continues to gain strength in Puerto Rico and position itself as a hub of job creation and sustained economic growth,” said Víctor López, chairman of PRITC.
“This year, we again bring together industry leaders with the aim of further developing and implementing strategies that drive our mission to ensure Puerto Rico’s competitiveness in computing locally and internationally,” said López.
The event’s agenda will address issues such as the state of the IT industry in Puerto Rico, the changing role of chief information officer, the challenge of attracting and retaining talent, and the process of financing new technological ventures through presentations by leading industry figures.
