The events on the SQL Relay 2015 Tour
Are all the events the same?
No, but there is a consistent theme. A number of speakers will present at multiple events, but the sessions and content will change throughout the tour according to speaker availability and the technical content required at each venue.
Can I register for multiple events?
Absolutely, yes. With multiple tracks of content you can't see every session on a single day, so why not join us at multiple venues to make sure you get a full dose of SQL Server awesomeness.
We welcome all attendees, international and local. However we are unable to provide or support visas for foreign attendees.
