Hi SAS Nordic FANS


One thing is that SAS Global Forum 2017 with 5000 Attendees is a big Conference, but having to choose between the massive 770 sessions during the 4 days - how to manage that ?


Of the 770 sessions

You have two options to search/filter sessions of interest and to save your personal agenda

  1. Web-based Session Catalog
  2. Search in App/Play Store for "SAS Global Forum 2017"

In the agenda builder you have all kinds of search options/angles to find the session of interest - It's always a good idea to do some homework before the Conference. If you think you can manage to browse around and pick sessions adhoc - you will most likely, not get the best experience.


Engage in the SAS Commuity Group, attend our one hour SAS Nordic Fans webinar "News from SAS Global Forum" on april 20th with highlights from the Conference or follw me on Twitter where I will post during the Conference.


Below are some presentations I already have found - so far..... I still need to prioritize... Kennedy Space Center or The Everglades ;-)


See you in a few weeks.....
