Conference season is about to start, and we’ve trawled the conference and exhibition industry for the best, most useful events for people working in data management. To save you time, here’s our round-up of our top recommendations. The list is in chronological order for easy scanning. You’ll also find an automotive section for those working in one of our focus industries.

These events are mostly in Europe, which is our geographical area of focus and therefore the area we’ve investigated. If you have events to add to the list, please email them to us via our contact page.

We’re proud to be sponsoring the World Data Summit in Amsterdam and the Automotive Retail & CRM conference in Barcelona. We hope to see you there!
