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 on the aegis of FOSSASIA from 22nd - 24th March, 2018. You will be able to enjoy both the Asian PostgreSQL conference and one of the largest FOSS conferences in Asia at the same time!

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. The event is held along with FOSSASIA - 2018, the largest Free and Open Source Software event in Asia.
