After careful consideration of the safety and economic well-being of our members, and in consultation with key sponsors and our venue partners, the 25th Annual DATIA Conference has been rescheduled for April 27-May 1, 2021. 

Our annual conference details remain largely intact, including our location in Washington DC at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park.  Our agenda will remain focused on DATIA’s mission to create collaboration, inspire innovation, and deliver education to our membership and our industry.


For those who have already registered for the 25th Annual Conference, no further action is required.  All registrations have been automatically moved to our rescheduled conference dates.  If you have already made reservations with the Marriott, please contact the hotel directly to ensure the new dates for your stay are properly reflected.     


With this shift in scheduling, we recognize that many of our members are facing recertification deadlines this spring. We are working diligently to finalize virtual and/or regional opportunities for receiving this important training.  More details will follow in the coming weeks regarding your DATIA training and recertification options.


DAITA remains committed to being your trusted industry partner and resource, and we look forward to seeing you all safe and in good health next spring in Washington DC!
