Here are just a few quotes from past attendees:
"This was by far the best conference I've ever attended ."
"As a visitor from overseas (UK), I had a fantastic experience at the conference - well worth the extra travelling costs of crossing the Atlantic."
"It was a wonderful source of additional information you can't get out of a book . I was also able to network with other DBAs, which was priceless to me since I'm the only DBA in my organization. I gained a greater perspective on my knowledge and value to our organization. I also realized how much more I can learn.
