KMWorld 2021 Will Be Held Virtually

Just a few months ago, we seemed to be on a path to return to Washington, DC for our first in-person KMWorld conference in two years. Our planners, speakers, and community were all very excited to see everyone face-to-face again. Unfortunately, it now seems there continues to be too many obstacles in our way for us to overcome. We have recently made the decision that we will not be able to host KMWorld 2021 as an in-person event.

We deeply appreciate your support of KMWorld and your understanding that we have made every effort to host KMWorld 2021.

We are, however, excited to move forward with planning for KMWorld Connect 2021. Given the successes and experiences of our previous virtual events, we are now prepared to make KMWorld 2021 our best virtual conference ever. The virtual conference will be held, as scheduled, the week of November 15 - 18, 2021 with workshops on Friday, November 12 and Friday, November 19.

KMWorld Connect 2021 will provide practical advice, inspiring thought leadership, and access to in-depth training and workshops on how KM and related disciplines can provide enormous value for your organization and transform your business.

This year's conference theme, Knowledge Sharing in the Age of New Technologies, focuses on culture, people processes, and the many different types of technologies supporting organizations as they excel in their industries.

KMWorld Connect 2021, and its co-located events — Taxonomy Boot Camp Connect, Enterprise Search & Discovery Connect and Text Analytics Forum Connect — will showcase organizations who have creative digital strategies for their future. See how they are addressing digital disruptions and changing the culture of their enterprises.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with colleagues, peers, and experts, and learn how successful knowledge management can transform your organization.

Full program, registration, and sponsorship information can be found on the virtual event website.
