Networking opportunities to connect you with like-minded data professionals.

Global Welcome Receptions

Kick off your conference on a high note by networking and getting to know your fellow attendees at our PASS Virtual Summit Welcome Reception. Taking place for the first time in regional time zones, each with its own flavor, blast out some tunes from our resident DJ, let our mixologist guide you through making a delicious cocktail from scratch, and connect with friends old and new at our online party.

Regional Spotlights

We’ve always brought people together from around the world, but PASS Virtual Summit gives us even more of an opportunity to do this. This year we’re able to provide sessions in the speaker’s own time zones and what better opportunity to also connect with people from your region at a time which is convenient to you.

Networking Opportunities

We are truly bringing the PASS Summit experience to you virtually by bringing back much loved networking opportunities like our First-Timers event, Kilt Day, Birds of a Feather discussions, Regional Spotlights, PASS Community Zone, PASS Board Office hours, and community-run events like SQLRun and Speaker Idol.   


Just because we’ve gone virtual doesn’t mean our attendees will miss out on fun PASS Summit experiences like collecting as many ribbons as you can. We’re building out virtual ribbons and very much looking forward to seeing who’s going to lead the way in sheer quantity.
