SAS Forum 2017 Stockholm

SAS User Forum Sweden

Stockholm June 20th 2017

▼ Registration is open 

Attend SAS User Forum and get inspired by best practice from SAS experts, updated on analytics news, and clued-in about the best hands-on tips and tricks you can implement directly after the conference.        

Together with FANS, the new Nordic User Group, we are building a program that goes deeper into news and use of SAS software. Do you have a topic you would like to see on the agenda, or a presentation to share from your own work? Please reach out to

Nordic FANS User Group

In addition to being a social arena where you can meet hundreds of peers, this forum will give you a broader knowledge of SAS capabilities and the benefits they bring to your work. Learn and be motivated by best practice from other SAS customers, partners and advisers.

You can expect:

  • The latest on new products and technology
  • Real-life use cases
  • In-depth sessions with more demos than PowerPoints
  • Networking with hundreds of peers
  • Dinner with social mingling as well as fun and games
  • Education corner
