Welcome to PostgreSQL Europe, the "umbrella group" for PostgreSQL User Groups in Europe and for users in regions that don't have a local user group. Our goal is to promote the use of PostgreSQL in Europe. We do this primarily by assisting local user groups to promote the product locally through conferences and other advocacy, as well as running European-wide conferences and other activities.
PostgreSQL Europe is strongly committed to Inclusivity, Diversity and Appropriate Conduct, as it is laid out in the PostgreSQL Code of Conduct. We highly value having a community that is free and open and where anyone regardless of race, colour, sexual orientation or identity, disability, or other personal characteristics can enjoy participating freely without fear of discrimination or harrassment. We do not tolerate inappropriate behaviour in our community.

The 2021 elections for PostgreSQL Europe are now closed, and the full results are published on the website.
The PostgreSQL Europe Board would like to welcome back Magnus Hagander who was re-elected, and Ilya Kosmodemiansky who will be joining the board.

The board would like to thank Ilaria Battiston and Georgios Kokolatos who also stood for …
Due the the continuing pandemic situation in Europe and the world, Nordic PGDay 2021 has been canceled.
We will return to Helsinki in March 2022, provided the situation is better then. Please see our updated website at https://2022.nordicpgday.org/ for updates.
We do not plan to run a virtual version of the conference. Instead, we will focus our efforts on helping out with the PostgreSQL track at FOSDEM 2022 in February.
After a long discussion, we have made the painful decision to cancel PostgreSQL Conference Europe 2020.
During the past weeks attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers have contacted us and asked if the conference will take place, expressing their concerns regarding the ongoing COVID-19 situation. For some countries it is clear that no one can travel to Berlin in October, for others it might be possible but it is not certain at this point. Others are concerned about travelling, regardless of whether or not it is allowed. And an increasing number of companies have also announced travel bans lasting past the …
We're all sad that Nordic PGDay 2020 did not happen, but having now seen how the situation in Europe and the world has evolved, we are more certain than ever that canceling was the right decision.
Since we did not get to visit Helsinki this year, we have decide to instead return next year.
We hope the situation will be better next year, and that everybody who was planning to attend this year will be able to join us next year instead.
