CIOmove to Moscow postponed / Replacement in Stuttgart.
We will see our Russian friends again in 2022, July 14-17. Unfortunately, this year’s date could not be kept. The threat from Covid is too great for a large international conference. As a replacement, the CIOs of Daimler, Porsche and Audi invite us to a small “mini-CIOmove” around Stuttgart, date: July 7-11, 2021.
First, a consolation for Alexey Khorunzhiy, Dmitry Shcheglov and Dmitry Samartsev, who shaped our program for Moscow: We will visit the Moscow Exchange and Sberbank – just not in 2021 but in 2022. The Hotel Ukraine has again agreed to move our deposit for the 120 rooms back by one year. Of course, we will then see the stock exchange, Russia’s largest bank, the research and IT city of Skolkovo, and all the other exciting venues Moscow has to offer. We’d be crazy not to re-run the excellent program (see https://www.ciomove.com/2021-day-one/ ) from July 14-17, 2022.
And one more consolation for all the CIOs in the world: of course, they are also invited to participate in the replacement “Mini-Move” to Stuttgart. Date: July 7 to 11, 2021. Germany has come through the crisis relatively well so far. Vaccination and testing programs are showing initial success. And corporate travel restrictions in most countries are not as great for Stuttgart as they are for Moscow. But there is another reason why CIOs can sign up for the mini-move without hesitation:
Corona aerosols have little chance of survival at this year’s annual meeting of CIOs. The Mini-Move takes place mostly outside: We cycle from Daimler to Porsche and Audi. A ship accompanies our bicycles on the local river Neckar. Those who get tired while cycling or shy away from the rain can continue their discussions on the open deck of the ship. We expect a mild summer wind at most of our locations. Where this cannot blow, a state-certified safety officer will check the existing hygiene measures https://www.ciomove.com/safe-move/ .
Details of this year’s replacement event will be published here shortly. At the moment, two dates remain to be noted:
- replacement Mini-Move to Stuttgart from July 7 to 11, 2021.
- regular CIOmove to Moscow from July 14 to 17, 2022
