TDWI Chicago Update

At TDWI, we have been working hard to navigate this ever-changing landscape in the face of COVID-19, and we want to assure you that the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and vendor partners is our top priority. Therefore, due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the guidelines laid out by the CDC and WHO, we have decided to merge this year’s TDWI Chicago Conference (May 10-15) with TDWI Orlando 2020 (November 8-13), where it can be a successful experience for everyone. The Chicago 2020 agenda will be replicated at TDWI Orlando 2020.

Our registration team will be in contact with individual registrants and sponsors directly.
