European PASS Conference 2009 Has 254 Attendees

By Brad McGehee, 2009/04/28

The 2009 European PASS Conference, which was held April 22-24, 2009, had 254 attendees from 22 different countries. In spite of a difficult economy, attendance was up from 187 attendees last year.

The event was held at the Swissôtel Conference center, which over looks the Rhine river, in Neuss, Germany, which is just outside of Düsseldorf.

On April 22, there were two pre-conference sessions, and on April 23-24 there were 36 different sessions in four different tracks.

The keynote address was presented by Rushabh Mehta, the Executive Vice President of Finance and Technology for PASS, who at the last moment had to take over the keynote, as the scheduled keynote speaker, Donald Farmer, had to cancel at the last minute.

Some of the many speakers included András Belokosztolszki, Brad M McGehee, Christian Bolton, Bill Graziano, Ross Mistry, Simon Sabin, Dejan Sunderic, Dejan Sarka, Steve Simon, Bob Ward, and many more.
