PGConf US 2016 will be held March 28-31, 2017 at the Westin Jersey City. This year we have announced several new additions to the conference such as an extra day of talks, a job fair, and increased sponsor opportunities. With the support of the United States PostgreSQL association, we are dedicated to increasing benefits for all of our conference attendees, speakers, and sponsors.

This will be the fourth and most successful PGConf US, thanks to the participation of our attendees, speakers, volunteers, and sponsors. As a result, the PostgreSQL community has increased substantially. Forecasting over 500 attendees, the conference will be representing hundreds of companies and locations around the world.

Day one of the conference, March 28th, will focus on providing in depth, hands on trainings with the goal of increasing the skillset of the community. We will also be hosting the Third Annual Regulated Industry Summit, featuring topics such as finance, government, healthcare, and PostgreSQL. The summit brings together PostgreSQL contributors and enterprise developers to discuss solutions using PostgreSQL for challenges in regulated industries. March 29th-31st will feature dedicated talks, keynotes, and social events focused on the wonderful world of PostgreSQL.

Until November 15th, 2016, experts from around the world will be submitting talks and trainings to enhance the knowledge of the community and to be a part of one of the best open source communities in the world. Such individuals include developers, DBAs, systems administrators, business-intelligence analysts, decision makers, etc.
