Bring Your Team to TDWI

You can bring your entire BI team with you, because the TDWI BI Executive Summit is co-located with the highly respected TDWI World Conference. While you strengthen connections with your peers at other companies, your team members can attend several of our 50+ training courses that run the entire week. Then you and your team can catch up in the evening to compare notes and share in some fun by attending the TDWI Exhibit Hall and hospitality suites. Geographically distributed teams often use the TDWI BI Executive Summit and Conference as an excuse to get together, plan, and build team spirit. (Some also use TDWI Research staff or faculty members during this time to deliver presentations to their team or facilitate group discussions.
