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.


TDWI offers a conference scholarship program for graduate students and faculty who are either researching or teaching analytics, data management, or other relevant data initiatives. Many graduate students and faculty do not have the resources to otherwise attend a conference, and TDWI feels that it is important to support the educational community by providing access to modern best practices and technologies.

Scholarships are offered at each of our four conferences held throughout the year in various locations. At this time, TDWI is not able to offer scholarships to our seminar events. Scholarships are open to students and faculty throughout the world.

The scholarship covers the conference registration fee and course materials. Scholarship recipients are responsible for their other conference expenses, including travel and lodging costs.

Requests for scholarships must be submitted at least 60 days prior to the conference and should be sent electronically to Hugh Watson at and Brenda Woodbridge at

The request should include contact information, the conference for which a scholarship is being applied, and a description of how attending the conference will support the applicant’s research and/or teaching.
