Upcoming SQL Events

Things are getting real BUZY for me on the SQL Events front already {I have plans to do a lot of SQL Events this year, to even try to match my huge 2011 tally)

I have to try to find time to plan and organize all the various tasks needed to just fit it all in {need to get my travel plans sorted .I will have to try using Tripit as Jen Stirrup has recommended

and I still need to find a few evenings to run some local User-Group events in London over the next few months

I'm Looking for companies to be hosts for our User-Group evenings - So would you like to have a SQL User-Group event in London @ your own location (Ideal for your SQL Team to attend)

it just needs a room capable of seating 30-100 people for ~ 3 hours (6-9PM) during a mid-week evening (Tuesday - Thursday's) and not be difficult for the attendee's to get to.. close to a tube station (within 5-10 minutes) is always helpfull

We'll provide the speakers (you can help choice the topics for the evening) and we also provide the dinner & refreshments + SWAG for the attendee's - interested please email me @ Neil.Hambly@Hotmail.co.uk


So with this many event's already in my Calendar over the next few Months, it is going to be very exciting time but a tad exhausting as well

I will get to see so many of my SQL Friends over these events and undoubtedly meet a few new ones
