ARMA Live! 2018

Welcome to ARMA Live! 2018

The Prime Event for Information Professionals to Connect, Learn, and Shape the Profession

Anaheim, California | October 22 - 24, 2018

The benefits and risks of an organization’s critical information assets are widely acknowledged, but how to harness that benefit and appropriately mitigate that risk continue to be real challenges for most organizations. There is an urgent need to ensure programs and solutions are designed to address the full life cycle of information in a comprehensive way. Where can an information professional turn for the most credible and authoritative education, solutions, and technologies? To ARMA International and ARMA Live!

The networking opportunities and education sessions here will educate, empower, and embolden you so that you can make a greater, more positive difference in your organization and community.

"ARMA Live is the best bang for the buck over any conference in the records and information management industry. The education, networking and diversity of attendees coming from different industries makes this event the best I’ve attended."
Amanda H.

Last year, ARMA Live! attendees were re-energized and emboldened as Agents of Change: agents to their own career, their organization, and ultimately the world. This year, ARMA's Agents of Change will put that same energy into action as they harness the strategic power of information.
Information is fast becoming the most powerful tool in an organization’s arsenal. Just imagine: with integrated best practices, information has the power to innovate the way we do business, inform generations to come, and positively impact the world. As the super heroes and gate-keepers of physical and electronic records and information, attendees will learn from, and with, their industry peers, their segment counterparts, and those experts at the forefront of this profession.

For ARMA International members who register for the full-conference through the Early Bird Discount period (which ends at midnight on August 28), the fee is $1,099. For non-members, the fee through the Early Bird discount period is $1,349. Save an additional $200 by booking your hotel during registration.
After August 28, the full-conference fees are $1,299 for members and $1,549 for non-members. (All non-members who register for the full conference during or after the Early Bird Discount period will get a free one-year membership to ARMA International!)

  • FREE registration to the September ARMA Flipped! Virtual Conference

Unrivaled Networking
According to our past attendees, one of the greatest benefits of attending ARMA Live! is meeting and mingling with peers from around the world and from different industries. This year ARMA Live! will once again put an emphasis on networking opportunities for you – starting with the Sunday Night Party and including industry-specific networking events and roundtables throughout the event.

Help ARMA International support a terrific non-profit agency that serves children with disabilities and illnesses. It’s called Capes4Heroes, and you can learn everything about it at the agency’s website. In short, the agency co-founder learned from her own experience with an autistic child that giving children capes to wear can make them feel happier, stronger, and more empowered.

You can support Capes4Heroes by ordering a conference t-shirt! Proceeds from your purchase will go directly to the agency and will result in more free capes for more children in homes, camps, and hospitals around the country.

You can purchase your shirt during the registration process and pick it up onsite at ARMA Live! and wear it proudly in Anaheim. Or, you can click here to make your purchase and have the shirts sent to you.
