U.S. Face-to-Face Events

As a result of the Covid-19 situation, we've postponed and are rescheduling events through July. We expect to announce new dates soon. This will allow us to focus on taking the right measures to create a safe environment for all later in the year, and to fulfill the information needs of our attendees and the customer networking and branding needs of our sponsors.

IDG’s US events are designed to provide experiences that foster information sharing, inspiration, and practical tools for IT executives. Content is curated by industry experts who are passionate about technology and understand the important role that face-to-face events play in deepening relationships. In fact, 96% of attendees would recommend our conferences to their colleagues.

Whether regional, national or custom, all IDG events bring together the brightest minds and focus on topics that will make a difference in how attendees approach strategy, technology innovation, and critical business issues across industries.
