General Questions

What is the PASS Data Community Summit?

PASS Data Community Summit 2022 is the evolution of PASS Summit, the largest gathering of data professionals focused on the data platform.

Building on 22 years as the event to attend if you want to stay on top of rapidly changing trends in data, Redgate is hosting this year's Summit as a hybrid online and in-person conference in Seattle, WA, for the data platform community to connect, share, and learn with thousands of their peers.

Attendees will hear from industry-leading experts, make connections that advance their careers, and discover cutting-edge products and services for the Microsoft data platform.

Why is it called PASS Data Community Summit?

We put a lot of thought into what the Summit should be called.

PASS no longer exists and we're not trying to replace it, but the PASS Summit has huge recognition in the data platform community, and a lot of good memories associated with it. We've always had an excellent experience at the conference as sponsors in the past and as attendees.

To reflect that we want to build on that experience and that legacy, and that we're going to maintain that quality and breadth of content, we've decided to keep PASS Summit as part of the name.

While we're not looking to replicate PASS, we do want to continue this annual gathering, the largest event for data platform professionals, and continue to support the people who have been part of the PASS community.

We felt that keeping the reference to 'PASS' welcomes all previous members of the community.

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

What happened to PASS?

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

Will Summit be virtual again this year?

This year’s PASS Data Community Summit is a hybrid event, which means it is available online and in-person. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend Summit however they choose, from anywhere in the world. We’re pleased to be able to welcome the data platform community back to Seattle for in-person training, events, and networking opportunities. Whether you’re attending in-person or online, we’re committed to providing an exceptional experience for all attendees.
