Wow, doesn't time fly during hot weather, holidays and the world cup? It seems like only yesterday that your EMEA Conference Committee was deciding on location, venue and starting to look at putting together the programme.
Now here we are, mid-July already, and session submission close is almost upon us. Registration is then just around the corner opening 23rd July. So if you've been away enjoying the weather and some downtime, it's time to start thinking about what you could share with our community and if you haven't yet managed to have your summer getaway, better get those submissions in and register before you go!!
If you've attended the EMEA conference before you'll know what a brilliant community we have and how successful previous conferences have been for learning, sharing and networking.
The conference is easily big enough to be able to provide top quality sessions from both our institutions and our sponsors. There's something for everyone ranging from strategy, learning, deep dives and of course, the product roadmaps. At the same time, the conference is still personal enough for great networking opportunities giving the chance to meet your peers, share ideas, successes, and frustrations, making some valuable and lasting relationships.
Antwerp itself looks fantastic and the reports back from the committee who have visited the venue is that it is just right for our conference. All of the sessions room are directly off the main networking area so we will have a fantastic space to maximise. And as ever, we'll be looking to provide an excellent opportunity to let your hair down and have some fun at our famous closing night do.
All of the details for the conference you need are here. (Direct link: https://www.heug.org/p/cm/ld/fid=2799). These pages are updated by the committee as the agenda and activities are confirmed. This is also where you will find links to register and also to submit those all important sessions. There also details of the conference team should you have any questions.
So, come on, get those ideas and session submissions in and look out for registration opening soon. Let's make this another hugely successful EMEA Alliance and both build on our existing relationships and make some exciting new ones.
I'm looking forward to seeing you all there !!
