About PASS Data Community Summit

PASS Data Community Summit 2022 is the year's largest gathering of data platform professionals. Whether you're joining us online or in-person, this is your opportunity to connect, share, and learn with thousands of your peers from the global data platform community.

Attending in-person

We’re so excited to be hosting Summit in-person this year and bringing the conference back home to Seattle. We know many of you have amazing memories in the Washington State Convention Center (now called the Seattle Convention Center) and we look forward to continuing the community traditions, as well as introducing new ones, during our first hybrid Summit.

In-person attendees will be able to enjoy face-to-face networking throughout the event and build relationships with like-minded data experts who can support you in your career journey. The connections you make during an in-person conference can unlock doors and create connections that last a lifetime.

Meet your data hero after their session, have an informal chat in the hallway, or stop by the Community Zone throughout the day to grow your network and get answers to the questions you’ve had all year.

There will also be tons of fun community-led events taking place during the week, including brewpub meetups, SQLKaraoke, morning jogs, photo walks, and much more.

Attending online

We’re committed to delivering a true hybrid event for our online attendees this year. The online event platform will be the same as in 2021, offering you award winning session streaming and innovative technology to ensure your home-based experience is seamless.

Our online Community Zone is powered by SpatialChat again this year, a state-of-the-art networking platform that allows you to have 1:1, group, and impromptu chats, just like you would at an in-person event. The Community Zone will be made up of different themed rooms that you can visit throughout the event to meet data professionals with similar interests, and at a time-zone that suits you.

Online attendees will have access to join livestreamed sessions and interactive Q&As. Online passes provide complimentary access to on-demand recordings for 3 months post-event, so you can revisit any of your favorite content or sessions you missed right after broadcast live in Seattle.


What's PASS Data Community Summit?

PASS Data Community Summit 2023 is the evolution of PASS Summit.

Building on the tradition and expertise of over two decades as the must-attend data conference, Summit focuses on new trends and innovation through connection, sharing, and learning opportunities, bringing data professionals together to celebrate personal and professional growth.

To continue focusing on the human connections that make Summit special, this year Summit will take place exclusively in person in Seattle, November 14-17. Attendees will hear from industry-leading experts, make connections to advance their careers, and discover cutting-edge products and services for a variety of database platforms.

Why is it called PASS Data Community Summit?

PASS, the former Professional Association for SQL Server, no longer exists (and we're not trying to replace it), but Summit has huge recognition within the data platform community, as well as a lot of good memories.

To build on that experience and legacy, and to affirm our commitment to the quality and breadth of content on offer, we've decided to keep PASS Summit as part of the name.

By adding 'Data Community', we're welcoming everyone who works with data to join in and connect, share and learn on a global scale.

What happened to PASS?

The PASS organization ceased operations in January 2021 and Redgate acquired its assets.

Where's Summit taking place?

Summit 2023 takes place in Arch at 705 Pike Street, in Seattle, November 14 – 17th, 2023.

Will there be pre-cons this year?

Yes. Pre-cons will be available on November 13 & 14.
