Data Transparency 2017 is Washington’s fifth annual open data policy conference. DT2017 will bring together government leaders, transparency advocates, and the technology industry to work together on the transformation of government information from disconnected documents into open data.
Last year’s open data policy conference, Data Transparency 2016 hosted the first-ever White House Open Data Innovation Summit, which attracted nearly 1,200 registrants and featured nearly fifty speakers.
DT2017 will feature program tracks focusing on the benefits of Open Data in Government Spending, driven by the DATA Act of 2014, and Open Data in Regulation, where standardization programs like the Dutch government’s Standard Business Reporting are reducing compliance costs. As a third program track, DT2017 will also feature a program track that will focus advantages of standardizing and publishing legislative materials and regulations in and open data format.
DT2017’s exhibition will spotlight corporate members of the Data Coalition, the nation’s only open data trade association, and also offer an opportunity for new and growing startup companies to show how the open data transformation powers their businesses. Join us on September 26!
