NOTICE: Regarding Coronavirus – Updated May 12, 2020 

To our Enterprise Data World community,

Due to ongoing event challenges surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) regulations, DATAVERSITY has officially rescheduled the 2020 Enterprise Data World Conference (EDW) to October 18-23, 2020, and the event will now be hosted at The Drake Hotel in Chicago, IL. 

We worked on numerous alternatives before deciding on this date and location as the best option. This option stood out since we already had October dates booked for the Data Architecture Summit (DAS) event, and are able to expand the space at The Drake Hotel to create a more appropriate venue for hosting EDW. 

Please know we are monitoring the coronavirus situation closely. Enterprise Data World in Chicago is proceeding as planned, but should that change, we will update all stakeholders right away.

Have additional questions? Please contact our team at events@dataversity.net for additional assistance.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we manage to navigate through these exceptional circumstances.

Thank you,

Q. If I registered for the March EDW Conference in San Diego, does my registration automatically move to this event?

A. Not necessarily. All paid registrants who did not cancel before the San Diego EDW event was postponed on March 9th were given the option to transfer their full registration credit to any future DATAVERSITY conference within the next year or to an annual subscription to the DATAVERSITY Training Center

Your March EDW registration WILL NOT be automatically transferred to the October event if…

  • You already chose to use the credit towards the Annual Subscription in the DATAVERSITY Training Center 
  • You already selected to take a credit to a “future event” (even if you have not decided on which event to attend)

But, if you’d like to change your previous selection, you can do so until April 30th, 2020. Please email registration@dataversity.net and our staff will happily assist you.  

Your March EDW registration WILL be automatically transferred to the October event if…

  • You did not cancel your registration before we postponed the event on March 9th AND have not already replied and selected from the credit transfer options we’ve offered you.

But, if you’d like to change your previous selection, you can do so until April 30th, 2020. Please email registration@dataversity.net and our staff will happily assist you.   

Q. What provisions do you have in place to ensure the safety of the attendees who are able to attend? 

A. We are working closely with the hotel staff to ensure we can provide a safe and comfortable space for all who attend and meet recommended CDC guidelines. As things evolve, we will provide more specific details to registered attendees. If you have additional questions, please reach out to us directly at events@dataversity.net.

Q. If I register and this event is canceled, will I get a refund? 

A. You can find our standard cancelation policy here. We intend to follow those guidelines. If you applied a previous event credit to book this new registration, there may be limitations on this policy. Please contact us at events@dataversity.net if you have additional questions.

Q. What happened to the Data Architecture Summit (DAS) program? 

A. Due to this merger, the core DAS program will be included in the new EDW agenda. For those who were planning to attend DAS, this will bring a wider array of options for you. For EDW attendees, it will offer the same broad event sessions that you would expect.

Q. Will the October EDW event be different than the March event?

A. Yes, and No. The structure of the agenda will mostly be the same. We will need to scale back on the number of sessions due to the space limitations at this venue, but will still have at least six concurrent tracks. We are confident there will be many excellent options still available during each time slot. You will be able to preview much of the new agenda following the official announcement on April 22nd, 2020.

Q. Who will sponsor the conference?

A. See the current list here.
