Formerly known as the MER Conference, InfoNEXT will continue the tradition of MER by, bringing together the industry's best and brightest Information Governance practitioners, thought leaders and solution providers, and providing a rich and valuable experience for all in attendance. While the core conference will remain focused on bringing the best speakers to the stage to deliver IG content that is relevant, actionable and solutions oriented, additional events such as the Executive Experience at InfoNEXT, meetings of the newly formed Global Information Consortium and the creation of industry councils will make InfoNext the epicenter of IG thought leadership.


InfoNEXT distinguishes itself from conferences such as InfoCon by adopting a more progressive perspective on Information Governance (IG). Both sessions attract IG professionals, thought leaders, and solution providers for informative dialogues and networking opportunities. However, InfoNEXT is dedicated to forward-thinking strategies and novel technologies, while InfoCon emphasizes practical application and industry enhancement. In addition, InfoNEXT introduces distinctive features like the Executive Experience, gatherings of the recently formed Global Information Consortium, and the establishment of industry councils. These facets highlight InfoNEXT's resolution to stay at the forefront of IG thought leadership and its commitment to extending the limits of the IG profession.

Don't miss out on this exceptional opportunity to join us at InfoNEXT 2024 in Palm Springs, CA from April 8-10, 2024. See you there!
