Please join us for a thorough review of GDPR and other data privacy regulations that will have a significant impact on how you operate your events moving forward.  Both the issues and solutions are complex, and the potential risks are extremely high as the legislation will impact not only organizations and events in the EU, but any organization that is processing the data of any EU citizen.  Also, If it’s determined that an organization is breaching this regulation, they can be fined up to $20 million or up to 4% of annual global revenue.

The good news is that there are solutions, and there are some very clear steps you can take to be in compliance and avoid the risk!

Please join us and hear from four of the top legal minds in our market who are dealing with these issues every day.  This is your opportunity to get the solid facts and the clear direction you need:
