Here’s an Upcoming VR Conference That’s a Whole New World – InfoGov World!: Information Governance Trends

It’s less than two weeks away and you don’t even have to leave your home office!  The InfoGov World Expo and Conference, hosted by IG World Magazine, will be conducted September 14th through 17th and it’s not like other virtual conferences.  This one will be in 3D virtual reality (VR)!  And I’ll be speaking!

It’s the world’s first global Information Governance (IG) conference, trade show, training, and job fair event to be held in 3D virtual reality, using the same VirBELA virtual reality environment that EDRM has used for its virtual events over the past year. The event will begin with two days of IG training sessions, followed by two days of interactive conference sessions in 3D VR, and concluding with a job fair. Uniquely, the conference will last 12 hours each day (6am-6pm ET; 12 noon to Midnight CET), covering time zones on both sides of the Atlantic. So multi-national companies may send attendees from around the world to participate in the conference sessions.  It’s not “InfoGov National”, it’s InfoGov World!  😉

Key topics in the conference sessions include data protection & privacy, eDiscovery, data governance, cybersecurity, infonomics and data monetization, content services, and more.  The full conference schedule is available here and the list of available speakers is here.

As evidenced by the graphic above, I will be co-presenting the session Five E-Discovery Lessons Learned from the Courts, sponsored by ACEDS with Tom O’Connor on Thursday, September 17th at 1:30pm ET.  It’s the Tom and Doug show again, discussing eDiscovery case law!  We could do that in our sleep!  But we promise to be awake, and the cases will provide some valuable lessons for attendees, keeping us all awake!

Registration options for InfoGov World are here and there are a lot of them, depending on what you want to do, who you are and how many of you there are.  And also whether you’re looking to attend Certified Information Governance Officers (CIGO) Exam Prep Training or Institute of Certified Records Managers (ICRM) Workshops.  Are you certifiable?  There’s only one way to find out!  🙂
