EMEA PUG Challenge 2016

PUG Challenge 2015 was our biggest conference ever with just under 500 delegates, so we have gone for a venue this year that will accommodate even more. The venue is the elegant Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin situated on the Netherlands North Sea coast in Noordwijk aan Zee. The hotel is 30 minutes from Schipol and 45 minutes from Rotterdam. We are holding the conference somewhat earlier in the year from  Wednesday 5th October to Friday 7th October. Maybe there’ll be some early autumn sun!

There will be an option of a three or two day conference, with breakout sessions as well as workshops available on Wednesday. This year we have changed our policy on discounted registration, with Early Bird and Super Early Bird limited by number instead of date, so it will pay to book early.
2015 was an exciting year in the Progress world with the integration of Telerik into the Progress stable, more work on the IoT with node.js and Modulus, closer integration between Data Direct and the rest of the Progress toolset and more work on Business Rules. So far we don’t know what 2016 will bring but I am sure the innovation will not stop!
Registration will open in early April so, in the meantime, save the date and look out for our next announcement!
See you in Noordwijk !
