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 DGIQ East take place?

A. DGIQ East will take place December 4-8, 2023, 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.

Q. What takes place each day?

A. We kick off with Half-Day Tutorials Monday morning and evening (December 4). The Conference Program (including Conference Sessions and Keynotes) takes place Tuesday-Wednesday (December 5-6). And we end the week with Full-Day Tutorials taking place Thursday (December 7) and 2-Day Seminars taking place Thursday-Friday (December 7-8). 

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

A. Most of the sessions are selected through a Call for Presentations (CFP) process. The CFP for December's DGIQ is now closed, but if you'd like to be notified when the next CFP opens, please sign up 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. How do I become a sponsor? 

A. Email 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. 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
