FAQS + COVID POLICIES

Q. What COVID-19 protocols will be implemented at December's DGIQ?

A. In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, DATAVERSITY will be requiring one of the following from every attendee upon arrival at the conference: 1) proof of full vaccination OR 2) proof of a negative test taken no more than 72 hours prior to arrival at the conference.   

If providing option 1 (proof of vaccination), individuals must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the start date of the event. For purposes of this Policy, “fully vaccinated” means 14 days have passed since the individual received the second dose of a 2-dose vaccine or the first dose of a single dose vaccine. If providing option 2 (proof of a negative test), it must be a COVID-19 PCR test taken within 3 days (72 hours) of onsite arrival.   

For more details, please see our COVID-19 Updates page. 

Q. Are face coverings (masks) required?

A. In accordance with current Washington, D.C. guidelines, face coverings (masks) are not required indoors. This policy may be adjusted if city, county, or state requirements in effect at the time of the conference include a mask requirement. At all times, individuals are welcome to manage their own risk by wearing a mask indoors and/or outdoors.  

Q. How will you be verifying proof of vaccination and testing for the event?

A. Proof of vaccination and testing is being verified through the third-party application CLEAR for U.S. attendees (at no cost to the attendee) and via a different method for international attendees. We will provide more details on this process as we get closer to the event. 

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. 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 DGIQ in San Diego? 

A. DGIQ in June 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 likely be slightly smaller (although with COVID, it is more difficult to predict) and 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. How do I get to speak at the conference?

A. Most of the sessions are selected through a Call for Presentations (CFP) process. This process is now closed for 2022, but if you would like to apply to speak in the future, please add your name to our CFP list by emailing speakers@dataversity.net .

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. What if my question wasn't answered above?

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