PASS SQL Saturday #460 Slovenia 2015

So we are back. PASS SQL Saturday is coming to Slovenia again on December 12th, 2015. Remember last two years? We had two great events. According to feedback, everybody was satisfied and happy. Let's make another outstanding event! How can you help?

First of all, these events are free for attendees. Of course, this is possible only because sponsors pay the bills, and speakers come on their own expenses, using their own free time. For a start, please respect these facts.

We always need more sponsors. Maybe your company is interested, maybe you know a company that would be interested for the sponsorship. Please spread the word about the event. This event is second to none in Slovenia. No other event in Slovenia attracts so many top speakers from all around the world as our SQL Saturday. Last year there were around two hundred attendees, with more than one third coming abroad. Therefore, as a sponsor, you can reach quite a broad audience, no matter that the event is in a small country.

The second pillar of the event are the speakers. Please consider speaking at the event. We are not limited to top speakers only; one of the goals of the event is also to raise new speakers. We are successful with this task. Every year we get somebody new. Therefore, don't hesitate; if you would like to join the SQL Server speakers community, this is a good time and place!

Organization of the event takes a lot of time as well. Maybe you can help here? When you register, you can also volunteer for a help. Or you can contact Matija Lah, Mladen Prajdić, or me directly.

There is never enough advertisement. Again, please spread the word about the event. Maybe your coworkers and friends didn't hear about the event yet. Please tell them. If you attended SQL Saturday Slovenia before, please share your experience.

Finally, please register and then attend the event. Last year we reached less than 5% drop-off rate, which is, as far as we know, a world record. Let's keep up the good work!
