A DB2 Symposium is a three day training event with one day seminars presented by IBM Champions & industry leading consultants like Bonnie Baker, Susan Lawson, Craig Mullins, Dan Luksetich, Cristian Molaro and Klaas Brant.
The DB2 Symposium fills the gap between a conference and a multi-day training. The DB2 Symposium is unique because you can join us for 1, 2 or 3 days, depending on your needs and budget.
The two locations in March 2013 are:
- March 13-15 - Dallas / Arlington, TX
- March 18-20 - Boston / Marlborough, MA
