But our attendees go out of their way as well to share their experience including John Samson and Victoria Holt to name some. We also receive reviews at our Facebook page.

Where else can you spend a whole day being taught by the very best in the industry at such a modest cost.
You'll learn more in 4 days than you did in the last year. You might well win something great in one of the many prize draws they run. You'll certainly meet lots of friendly techy types.
I have been to SQLBits for the last few years and the knowledge that I have gained has put me above colleagues in terms of expertise that I may not have picked up elsewhere.
An unbeatable combination of really great value training, the ability to pick and choose the sessions which interest you and the opportunity to mix with your peers. It's the highlight of the year for SQL DBAs
Love every single bits. Cheapest price ever for training and you get world class speakers!
The best SQL Server conference in Europe. Unbelievable know-how in a pleasant atmosphere.
