PORTLAND, Ore., April 29, 2021 – NAVEX Global®, today announced the tenth annual NAVEX Next virtual conference is scheduled for October 5-7, 2021 and registration is now open. Formerly known as the NAVEX Global Ethics & Compliance Virtual Conference (ECVC), this event is the largest meeting for risk and compliance professionals in the industry, attracting more than 8,000 registrants in 2020.

The event offers both practical guidance and best practices for industry professionals across disciplines and departments including risk management, compliance, legal, human resources, audit, ESG program management and corporate training. This year, the conference has been expanded to include a day exclusively for NAVEX Global customers and a day for its European audience.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Resilient & Ready”, which recognizes the stability and robustness exhibited by many risk and compliance programs throughout the extraordinary events of the past year, and also emphasizes the need to prepare for what comes next. As in the past, the conference will feature sessions on workplace culture, business risk, corporate responsibility & sustainability and integrated risk management.

“This past year has been a real test for organizations around the world and, in particular, for risk and compliance professionals,” said Susan Beermann, chief marketing officer for NAVEX Global. “Our customers demonstrated great resilience through the challenges posed during the pandemic. The NAVEX Next Virtual Conference 2021 will focus on ways we can all emerge stronger and better than ever.”
