Q. What is DGIQ?

A. The Data Governance & Information Quality Conference (DGIQ) is the world’s largest event dedicated entirely to Data Governance and Information Quality. Whether you are a newcomer or an experienced data professional, DGIQ offers practical case studies, advice from experts, and in-depth how-to tutorials.

Q. When and where will the next DGIQ East take place?

A. Our next DGIQ East will take place December 9-13, 2024, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. 

A member of Historic Hotels of America, the Omni Shoreham Hotel has a rich and varied history, hosting both The Beatles and inaugural balls for every president of the 20th Century, starting with Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Q. What makes DGIQ so special?

A. DGIQ is not just a regular business conference – it’s an ongoing community and network of Data Governance and Information Quality professionals. As with all DATAVERSITY conferences, the educational program emphasizes peer-to-peer learning through the sharing of case studies and practical experience. 

Q. Who attends DGIQ? 

A. Good question! In terms of industries, every major sector of the economy is represented, though the largest industry groups are usually financial services, insurance, health care, online commerce, and government. The range of job titles and functions is also very diverse, including chief data officers, VP and director-level IT executives, data architects, analysts, auditors, and consultants. And increasingly, this DGIQ event attracts managers from “the business side,” who now make up almost 50% of the audience.

Q. How is December's DGIQ different from June's DGIQ? 

A. June's DGIQ in San Diego, CA, has long been the largest and most comprehensive event dedicated to Data Governance and Information Quality, and we expect this to continue. December's DGIQ will have a few more sessions relevant to Federal government and financial industry attendees, simply because of proximity to those attendee groups, but otherwise, the two events are very similar in structure and focus, outside of the different locations and seasons. 

One exciting new addition to this year's DGIQ East is the AI Governance Forum, a new in-person event focused on providing thought leadership and best practices for the critically important emerging areas of AI Governance. Taking place alongside DGIQ, participation in the AI Governance Forum will provide access to all of the DGIQ sessions, and vice versa.

DGIQ East will also include our next Women in Data Management & Governance event. More details to be announced!

Q. How do I get to speak at the conference?

A. Most of the sessions are selected through a Call for Presentations (CFP) process, which is now open at this link!

Interested in submitting to the AI Governance Forum? Learn more here. 

Additionally, some sessions, such as Keynotes and Panels, are developed through specific invitations to the speakers. There are also some vendor speaking sessions that are identified on the program agenda as “sponsored.”

Q. Who is sponsoring? 

A. See our full list of sponsors here. Join them on the exhibit floor during the posted hours Tuesday through Wednesday, and make sure to join our Exhibit Reception Tuesday evening for light appetizers and cocktails + networking!

Q. How do I become a sponsor? 

A. Email Lenore Higgins for more information on how to become a sponsor for this event. 

Q. Where do I book a hotel room?

A. Learn about the hotel, parking, and transportation on our Travel Page

Q. Do you offer CDMP® testing at this event?

A. DGIQ satisfies the continuing education requirements of the Certified Data Management Professional (CDMP®) credential. DGIQ 2024 East will also offer time slots for attendees to take CDMP Exams (time slots to be announced). See our Certification Page for more details. 

Q. Will my registration include access to any recorded sessions?

A. All in-person registrants* receive access to DATAVERSITY Training Center's Essential Subscription for one year, which includes DGIQ 2024 East's recorded sessions and all face-to-face conference presentations + webinars, podcast episodes, product demos, case studies, and online conferences, as well as the complete catalog of “What Is…” on-demand courses, and all related insider content.

Essential Subscription access will be shared via email within two weeks of the event end dates, with DGIQ East videos becoming available app. four weeks after the event.

*Applicable to all in-person registrations with the exception of the Exhibit Booth Pass registration option.

Q. What if I can't attend in person? 

A. We will offer three non-attendee subscription options via our registration page that will include access to all of the sessions recorded at DGIQ 2024 East, so you can watch on-demand in the comfort of your own home or office!

Access to all Non-Attendee Packages/Subscriptions will be shared via email within two weeks of the event end dates, with DGIQ East videos becoming available app. four weeks after the event.

Q. What COVID-19 protocols will be implemented at DGIQ East?

A. In reviewing the current COVID-19 guidelines from the CDC, and the specific requirements in place in Washington, D.C., we will not be requiring proof of vaccination or negative testing in order to attend December's DGIQ East. 

DATAVERSITY still recommends that all attendees take measures to manage their own health risks and protect themselves by wearing face coverings (masks) indoors and being vaccinated with the latest available boosters at least two weeks prior to attending the conference.

Q. What if COVID-19 requirements change in Washington, D.C.?

A. If conditions around COVID-19 change such that stricter protocols are required by any health authority with jurisdiction in Washington D.C., then we will notify attendees immediately. 

Please ensure you have taken the time to read all of the latest Government, Public Health, travel, and testing guidance. You can find these at https://coronavirus.dc.gov/healthguidance

Q. What if my question wasn't answered above?

A. For registration questions, email registration@dataversity.net. For all other queries, email events@dataversity.net.
