7th installment of SQL Relay is coming in October 2016!

SQL Relay will be coming to Nottingham again on Thursday the 6th of October, 2016, featuring top quality SQL Server content from Microsoft, and nationally and internationally renowned speakers.

Last year we had 2 tracks worth of sessions, this year we're increasing this to 3. This will allow us to offer you even more sessions on SQL Server, Analytics, Cloud, Business Intelligence and Developer topics. Plus the popular half day training sessions will be making a return.

This is also a great chance to meet other SQL professionals for some networking and story swapping. And our sponsors will be on hand to discuss their products or offer advice.

The venue has been chose to be easily accessible. Nottingham rail station is a 10 minute walk away, we're handy for the Tram system with it's Park and Rides near each of the M1 junctions for Nottingham, and we also have discounted parking near the venue.

The Event


FREE! These events are funded entirely by our awesome sponsors, and the time donated by the organising committee. They are expensive to run, so please do show our sponsors some love, and we kindly ask that if you have a place, that you do turn up on the day. Otherwise you're taking a place that another attendee could benefit from. We would appreciate your help here.


Sessions will run provisionally from 9-5, with registration open at 8:30. (To Be Confirmed).

There will be 3 tracks of session running, with 2 half day workshops as well. Details of sessions and workshops will follow shortly. You'll be free to switch tracks as often as you like, so you can mix and match to suit your needs and objectives.

North Circus Street


There are 2 discounted multi story car parks near the venue:
and St James Street:
These are both pay on leave. When you park you'll be given your ticket, and then at the venue we will have discount tickets to give out. When you return you enter the discount ticket first and then the normal one, and the discount will be applied.


We'll be providing a light lunch, plus tea & coffee at a couple of breaks. We will be catering for vegetarians and other dietary requirements, please tell us your food preferences during registration.

First Time at These Events?

Everyone has a 'first event', including the speakers and organisers of this event. We're lucky to be a part of the UK SQL Server community, one of the most friendly and welcoming tech communities out there. Whether you're in a group or on your own, you'll be made to feel welcome and will learn lots about new and existing technology, as well as a chance to meet your peers and SQL heroes. And if you have any queries, please get in touch here and we'll help you out.

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.
