What Conference ? If I had the time and money

If I had lots of free time and enough money what conferences would I go to around the world. I regularly get asked for recommendations on what conferences should a person attend. It all depends on what you want to get out of your conference trip. Be is training, education, information building, networking, etc. or to enjoy the local attractions.

The table below is my preferred list of conferences to attend. All of the conferences below are focused on two main areas. The first area is Oracle  and the second area is that of Data Mining/Predictive Analytics.

I hope you find the list useful. If you can recommend some others let me know.

There is a lot of conferences in the October, November and December months. Some of these are on overlapping dates, which is a pity. Perhaps the organisers of some of these conferences. Also during the January and February months there does not seem to be any conferences in the areas.

If you would like to sponsor a trip to one or more of these then drop me an email Smile
