For those of you who follow our blog you will know that at KDR we love industry events and conferences. Over the past few months several of the KDR team have been attending events and meetups including Business Rocks, IRM Master Data Management and Data Governance Summit and the Manchester IP Expo. These events and conferences are a great way for the team to update their skills, increase their knowledge and network with industry thought leaders. As recruiter Leon says:

“Through attending the conferences I am constantly learning new things and updating my skills”.

And because we love attending them so much each month we are listing our top Internet of Things, Information Management and Big Data events and conferences that you can attend.
