SEATTLE, WA – December 12, 2011 – Tableau Software today announced that registration is open for second annual European Customer Conference. The event will be held at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain from 2 April to 4 April, 2012. The 2012 conference is expected to bring together 250+ data enthusiasts from at least 25 countries. Conference registration and information can be found at http://www.tableau.com/tcceu12.
“Tableau’s customer conferences are my current favorites of all the conferences that I attend,” said Stephen Few, founder of Perceptual Edge and keynote speaker at the Conference. “Why? For a couple reasons: 1) Those who attend love data as I do and live for the thrill of discovery, improved understanding, and better decisions—they are my people; and 2) Tableau produces sessions that are loaded with useful and practical content, so participants leave with new skills, not just with quickly fading memories of grand speeches, free drinks, and hollow promises. Customers appreciate it when a software vendor treats them with respect by making their valuable time worthwhile. None does this better than Tableau.”
More than 150 Tableau customers and partners attended the inaugural European Customer Conference held in Amsterdam earlier this year. Customers exchanged ideas and experiences about data visualization, big data, business intelligence and data discovery. They learned more about Tableau’s newest features, including localized versions in French and German.
In addition to a keynote speech and data visualization workshop from Stephen Few, this year’s event will feature pre-conference Tableau training, customer speakers sharing insights about Tableau’s business analytics capabilities, special sessions about becoming a Tableau partner, and opportunities to network and connect with the Tableau community.
“Data analytics are increasingly impacting and enhancing the lives of people around the globe,” said Bruno Saint-Cast, Tableau’s VP for Europe. “We expect the Barcelona event to bring people from across Europe who have a passion for data and desire to share and learn from their peers.”
A “Call for Speakers” for European Customer Conference was issued last month and is open to all Tableau customers. Storytellers with an engaging presentation are encouraged to submit topic ideas by filling out the application. The application can be found http://www.tableau.com/tcceu12-speaker-application.
