About PGConf APAC

PGConf APAC is the PostgreSQL conference series for all PostgreSQL enthusiasts in the Asia Pacific region. The third PGConf APAC will be held from 22nd – 23rd March, 2018.

Venue is Singapore

Singapore is a global city and is very well connected via flights with major hubs across the globe. It has a unique cultural blend and population from different ethnicities and religions. The coexistence and sound infrastructure has provided the foundation for rapid growth of the country and its positioning as a trade, technological and financial hub.

These are the reasons why various PostgreSQL User Groups from Asia have come together to organize one of the largest PostgreSQL shows in Asia Pacific – PGConf APAC 2018, the first large-scale PostgreSQL conference for the Asia Pacific region.
