Your Discovery Summit Europe tip sheet

JMP-Discovery2015_50B4795You’ve never been to Discovery Summit? Let’s make this right! Plan to join us in Amsterdam for Discovery Summit Europe, and we will help you make the most of the conference, thanks to feedback from those who have attended before.

Here's what you need to know:

  1. Breakout sessions are cited by past attendees as the top reason for going to the conference. But, by all means, review the agenda before you arrive. These talks run four-at-a-time, so you’ll have some JMP-Discovery2015_50B3929tough choices to make. We’ve seen standing room only for some topics – you don’t want to be caught not knowing where you want to go.
  2. Networking is usually rated as the second most important reason to attend. So be prepared to make friends! Some of the best learning happens during hallway conversations and social time. (By the way, our first social event will be a welcome dinner at the National Maritime Museum. Check it out.)
  3. This conference features four stellar keynote speakers. But I already told you about them. You didn’t miss that blog post, did you?
  4. We have a mobile app! Be sure you download it before you travel to Amsterdam. You can use the app to read about the JMP-Discovery2015_50B3834developers you’d like to meet, connect with fellow attendees and build your agenda. You can also check in to sessions to earn badges in an interactive game. Yes, winners get a prize.
  5. Want to go more in-depth on certain topics? We offer pre-conference training led by SAS instructors and developer tutorials led by the software masterminds themselves.
  6. I leave you with one last piece of advice, straight from a former attendee: “Get some rest BEFORE you go. You will be too busy with good stuff to rest while at the conference.”

    There you have it.
