As SQL Server and BI users ourselves, we've designed the PASS European Conference to be the one, must-attend conference of the year. We believe the cost to attend is paid back many times over through the wealth of learning, connections, and immediate solutions we gain in 3 action-packed, exhausting, and completely exhilerating days.

To help show the value of attending the PASS European Conference, the chart below illustrates key attendee goals and how the PASS European Conference meets these needs.

Your Goals
