The 36th annual SAS Users of New Zealand Conference was the biggest analytics event in New Zealand. With a new date and venue, the 2017 event was another quantum leap for the SUNZ community. AIt featured a full agenda of technical sessions and inspirational keynotes – all under the twinkling lights of the city’s most magnificent room.

The theme of SUNZ 2017 was open minds. It was an action-packed day of learning and networking – complete with an analyst community and SAS architecture that has never been more open.

New date, new venue, new ideas

We’re evolving! Following last year’s sold-out success, SUNZ 2017 was held in May to leverage the latest announcements from SAS Global Forum. The event had also outgrown its previous venue and therefore decided to make the move to a much more extensive building.

SUNZ 2017 is organised by SAS users for SAS users.
