About Us

This day is all about PostgreSQL - the world's most advanced open source database. Take the opportunity to meet with other people interested in PostgreSQL in Belgium. Beside the talks we offer the chance to network during the day. The event is suitable for everybody, from first-time users, students, to experts and from clerks to decision-makers. Within the description of each talk the target audience will be mentioned. The organisational team consists of W. Bertels (UCLL), A. Vercammen(Groep IDEWE) and G. Gioffredi (enosac). The information from the past conference is available for 2019

Financial Disclosure

The sponsorship is used to organize the conference, host the website or other to support PostgreSQL in Belgium. No staff receives any payment for their work, except for free attendance and a staff dinner. We will keep an overview of transactions with descriptions on the pgconf-be wiki Expenses of pgconf.be are covered with the income from our sponsors and from the registration fees. We aim at keeping costs for both parties as low as possible and include free entries for students in order to enable as many interested people as possible to attend. Profits are reinvested in the next year's edition of pgconf.be or Belgian PostgreSQL user community activities related to PostgreSQL.


The idea is to create a conference with a focus on high quality talks in a open environment. "PGConf", "PGDay", "Postgres Conference" and "PostgreSQL Conference" are registered trademarks of PostgreSQL Europe.
