The National Privacy and Data Governance Congress is about quality, not quantity. And that’s only one of the differences that distinguishes the PACC Congress as a superior learning event.

Another difference: We don’t think that packing as many delegates as possible into a venue is a valid indicator of superior quality. We do think it gets in the way of learning, networking, and discussion. So we limit attendance, have longer sessions than usual, and discourage speakers from relying on PowerPoint (unless it genuinely adds value) — and that leaves plenty of time to pose questions, get unscripted answers, network and engage in meaningful conversations with presenters, colleagues, and decision makers. 

We also don’t offer manels (all-male panels) and are careful to ensure that neither men nor women dominate the conversations.

Congress attendees and speakers are unequivocal in their appreciation for the caliber of the Congress speakers, and the fact that sessions offer practical guidance that delegates can put to work in their own organizations — not thinly veiled sales presentations or promotions.

Registration Includes 

• Full access to all workshops, keynotes and presentations

• All meals and networking opportunities

• Your choice of professional development sessions

• There is no single day registration option

Registration is Limited

To ensure delegates can network with speakers and presenters, attendance is strictly limited.
