96% of Summit 2010 attendees said PASS Summit ‘Met or Exceeded Expectations’. 99% also said they would recommend PASS Summit to their SQL Server and BI colleagues.

Here are just a few quotes from past attendees:

"This is by far the best conference I've been to."

"I love this conference. It is the best value for both the education and access you get to the Microsoft employees."

"PASS Summit is a very high quality training and learning event wrapped up in less than a week. I wish I could bring my whole team every year."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the conference, more information than my brain could handle. I have attended several conferences. I found SQLPass had a much better sense of community and the access to Microsoft developers was terrific. There was always something I was interested in seeing. I have definitely suggested that we send a representative every year."

"First time I attended and it totally rocked. Far exceeded my expectations."

"As a first time attendee, I had a wonderful experience and I attribute a lot to Twitter and the contacts that I've developed that way. The sessions were great - there was often more than one session I wanted to attend at a given time. However, with such great content, that is bound to happen."

"Excellent conference as always. Nice to meet other SQL professionals from all over the world."

"Really great event. I got good information that is actually applicable to our installation. Good speakers and a nice facility. Thank you."

"It was an exceptional experience! Keep up the good work!"

"Great speakers. Lots of questions answered. Good overview of changing tech trends. Overall, great conference."

"My PASS experience was fabulous. It was my first-time and I enjoyed the whole event and made new friends."

"The Summit was excellent and I've recommended it to my colleagues who work even peripherally with SQL. The presenters for the sessions I attended were extremely knowledgable and helpful and if I can get management here to agree, I'd definitely go again."

"I gained a lot of specific knowledge about a broad spectrum of topics."

'I got the feeling that I was hearing and interacting with "the" people in the know for SQLServer."

"I was very impressed by the variety and volume of sessions - I had a hard time picking which to attend because there were so many! Overall, the speaker quality was excellent; plenty of demonstrations with limited PowerPoint."

"This was a very fun and informative conference. I am already looking forward to attending next year's conference to attend some of the sessions I missed!"

"I have to admit, it was an excellent conference, organized well and just ran as expected. It was great to meet some of the MS folks I deal with but have never met. I am looking forward to returning to next year's event."

"Other than the networking, the access to Microsoft personnel was phenomenal and the highlight of the event."

"The event was an incredible experience for me. I am a first timer who plans to attend for years to come."
