2023 – This is IT

This Is IT ICT & Digital Coach Of The Year Award Amon

The award for excellent people management

ICT & Digital Managers are the driving force behind the talented ICT teams of Belgian companies. That’s why Amon wants to again put their valuable contributions in the spotlight, with the 2023 edition of the award show This is IT!

In the words of previous winner Jan Hollez: “This is not an award for numbers or growth. Amon’s ICT & Digital Coach award is about people, and that’s what makes it so nice to win it.”


Award show with keynotes & star performance

March 23rd, 2023

It’s expected to be a very exciting evening at the Ghelamco Arena in Ghent. And for once it won’t be about football, but rather about the ICT & Digital Coach of the Year award. You’ll certainly want to be present at this memorable event!

101 reasons to attend: the award ceremony, fascinating keynote speakers and a top performance by a famous Belgian band. With culinary delights and networking opportunities galore. A successful combination, as confirmed by the guests from previous editions!
