QUEST (Queensland Users Exploring SAS Technology) meet 4 times each year at a venue in central Brisbane. These meetings are usually at 4.45pm for a 5.00pm start and conclude by 7pm. A social mixer follows the meeting in which all attendees are encouraged to network with other SAS users and SAS staff. All SAS users are encouraged to attend these quarterly meetings that include presentations from both users and SAS Institute staff. QUEST provides an excellent opportunity for a wide variety of users to exchange views & experience on SAS software.
