The semi-annual MDM & Data Governance Summit hosted by Information Management will return to Chicago, July 10-12, 2019 at the Marriott Marquis, offering dozens of sessions around the topics of master data management, data governance, analytics, data privacy and security.

The summit is held twice each year. This is the second year that Chicago has been selected to host the summer event. The fall summit is held in November in New York City, usually at election time. Two-and-one half years ago, the New York summit was held at the Midtown Marriot Hotel at the same time that the Trump campaign was celebrating election victory in the grand ballroom.

The Chicago event promises to be no less memorable. Sessions and speakers for this year’s Chicago summit are as follows:
