Overview 2024

The theme for the IRMS Conference 2024 is:

As the saying goes, there’s nothing permanent except change, and the way in which people create, store, share and expect to find information are all constantly evolving – swept along by wave after wave of technological innovation. The IRMS Conference 2024 will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to help your organisation sail through an ever-changing environment.

Our busy programme is headlined by a set of thought-provoking keynotes from leading speakers across the public and private sectors. It also features a variety of presentations, case studies, discussions and workshops from practitioners, as well as the latest insights from vendors of products and services in various aspects of information and records management.

The 2024 programme will be as diverse as ever, featuring a host of new and familiar names from a wide range of roles across public, private and third-sector organisations, covering all aspects of information and records management including hot topics like:

  • Microsoft 365 / Teams / SharePoint
  • data protection / GDPR
  • information strategy
  • data management / data governance
  • artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning
  • digital preservation
  • professional development and people skills
  • environmental sustainability

but with an emphasis on new faces, new formats and new ideas.

All of the above, blended with our renowned social events and networking opportunities in a uniquely friendly and inclusive atmosphere, makes the IRMS Conference the premier event in the information management calendar – as the following feedback from our last conference shows:
