The spring season is always full of events and I’m just preparing for a number of them.

First of all, we are getting very good interest for the PowerPivot Workshop in Copenhagen on 21-22 March 2011. Tomorrow (Friday March 4) will be the last day to take advantage of the Early Bird rate for this date. We will also participate to an evening meeting of local user groups on March 21 in Copenhagen, more news about this in the next few days.
Other scheduled dates are in Dublin (28-29 March 2011) and in Zurich (4-5 April 2011).

Alberto will present some session at the Microsoft BI Conference 2011 in Lisbon on  25 March 2011 (I will be in an Italian event the same days – .NET Campus in Rome).

Then there is the SQLBits in Brighton (7-9 April, 2011) – the training day about SQLBI Methodology is going very well and I know that registrations to the overall event is going very well. Moreover, there is a new event inside the conference that is SQLBits Insight: it is for CIOs, architects and other senior technical decision makers. Attendees get to meet Steve Wozniak as well as Mark Souza (head of the SQLCat team), Ross Mistry, and Richard Tkachuk of the PDW team.

Finally, just for Italian-speaking people, there will be the Microsoft SQL Server & Business Intelligence Conference 2011 in Milan, on 19-21 April 2011. This conference is part of a larger event called Microsoft Technical Conferences 2011 that also includes the Microsoft SharePoint & Office Conference 2011 and the Microsoft Unified Communications & Collaboration Conference 2011. This is going to be a large event for Italian market and we have several session in English – I hope in the next edition it will be possible to create whole tracks in English and give a chance to register to a wider audience.

Well, there will be something in May, too… but there will be time to discuss them.
