Thanks to all that submitted to the call for speakers for our first PASS Data Community Summit 2021!
We received over 640 sessions from more than 270 unique speakers and greatly appreciate your interest and support.
Our next steps are to review all of the submitted abstracts with an amazing team of volunteers that will be giving their time over the next five weeks.

The largest gathering of data platform professionals, now PASS Data Community Summit, is a free to attend online conference for 2021 and will continue to support and grow the community in an effort to globally Connect, Share, and Learn.
