SQLBits X–Registrations are open

Published 07 December 11 04:14 PM | MartinBell

Today we opened registrations for SQLBits X. Everyone registered on SQLBits.com should have received an email, but in case you aren’t here is the information:

Dear Sir/Madam,
We have two pieces of big news for you this week. In the words of organiser Tim Kent “It’s gonna be massive”

Here at SQLBits we are so honoured and delighted to announce that Microsoft recognises SQLBits X as the official UK SQL Server 2012 Technical Launch Event.

And, if that’s not enough…..then

Registration for SQLBits X - The UK SQL Server 2012 Technical Launch Event, is officially open! We simply could not wait and decided to open up registration immediately.


Oh and also… we have received submissions from Microsoft’s Cathy Dumas, Elad Ziklik and Matt Masson. As well as MVPs; Denny Cherry, Adam Machanic and Stacia Misner. Not to mention the array of other Microsoft Certified Masters, Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals and Microsoft Staff who will be attending. In the meantime, check out the sessions that have already been submitted from both the best SQL Server speakers in the world and from new speakers.

New to SQLBits, allow us to explain what you would expect at a SQLBits event.

The conference will be taking place between the 29th and 31st of March 2012 at the Novotel London West. The event will be the biggest and best yet, we have capacity for 900 people and expect to sell out really quickly.

The format for SQLBits X is the same as always with leading speakers from all around the world – with the added buzz of the UK SQL Server 2012 Technical Launch Event thrown in for good measure.

Thursday will be a series of full day sessions delivered by renowned presenters followed by Fusion-io’s follow-up to last year’s highly entertaining Crappy Code Games in the evening.

Friday is a day filled with regular sessions delivered by our highest rated speakers and Microsoft superstars and will feature an all new SQLBits Social event that should not be missed!

As always we will conclude proceedings on the Saturday with our free Community Day.

We want as many SQL Server professionals to take advantage of this unique event. To that end, for the fourth conference in a row, we are freezing the prices to attend.

The prices for SQLBits X are as follows; register early to take advantage of our early bird discounts.

All prices are exclusive of VAT. Prices are in UK Pounds Sterling (GBP).

Why not download SQL Server 2012 RC0 now to experience the new functionality for yourself.

It is a testament to previous SQLBits attendees and sponsors that we have received this recognition. We hope we can thank all attendees, both new and old at the official UK SQL Server 2012 Technical Launch Event!
