The InformationWeek 500 conference and gala awards celebrates innovation with three days of workshops, networking and discussion. Unlike most technology-oriented shows, attendees get a unique opportunity to speak to and learn from some of the most successful IT executives, editors and influencers in the industry in an intimate setting.
