2019 General Assembly - Activities report

What has been done


See the Financial report, section "Activities".

2018 Events

2018 saw a good number of events which were either organized by, or with the support from PostgreSQL Europe. In total, we had 1507 registered attendees at this year's events which we are very happy about. We almost doubled the number of attendees. This is mostly thanks to PGDay Istanbul, a new event, though most events got slightly more attendees than last year.


The sixth annual one-track PGDay just before FOSDEM is still a successful and well established event with 120 attendees. During FOSDEM, we had lots of interest at our booth. Unfortunately, our devroom ended up completely full with far from everyone who wanted to attend being able to get in.

Nordic PGDay

The fifth iteration of Nordic PGDay followed the same concept as the four previous years, a single-day single-track conference. In 2018, it was held in Oslo, Norway, with 109 attendees and 7 talks.

pgDay Paris

The third iteration of PGDay Paris supported by PostgreSQL Europe followed the well proven one-day one-track model and attracted 151 attendees (39 more than last year!).


After another year of absence, PGConf.DE reappeared in Berlin with a single-day three-track conference with 19 talks. The conference had 178 attendees and got very positive feedbacks.


PGConf.EU broke its attendance record once again. The conference, which was held in Lisbon, Portugal, had 450 attendees. The event was a success with overwhelmingly positive feedback.

pgDay Istanbul

pgDay Istanbul is an event newly supported by PostgreSQL Europe. It is a single-day two-track conference with 11 talks, and a few lightning talks. The conference had an overwhelming 499 attendees.

2019 Events

We are in the middle of 2019, and some events already took place. These events were organized by, or with the support of PostgreSQL Europe. In total, we have already had 448 registered attendees at this year's events. This of course, is great.


The seventh annual one-track PGDay just before FOSDEM and the FOSDEM booth/devroom have been quite successful. All talks in our devroom ended up completely full with far from everyone who wanted to attend being able to get in.

Nordic PGDay

In 2019, Nordic PGDay was held in Copenhagen, Denmark, with 130 attendees and 8 talks.

pgDay Paris

In 2019, PGDay Paris attracted 176 attendees.


PGConf.DE is back, this time in Leipzig. It uses the same template as last year, a single-day three-track conference. There were 192 attendees. Another huge success.

Upcoming events

PGConf.EU will of course come back again, this year in Milan (Italy). We're still working on the details. More information will come later.

As always, we invite our members who are interested in working on a regional PGDay to contact us if we can be of any assistance at all, whether just in answering questions, or through organisational or financial aid.

New board member

We welcome Julien Rouhaud as our new board member. His position is Vice-Treasurer.

We'd like to thank Gulcin Yildirim for her work on the board of PostgreSQL Europe.

Work ongoing

New address

We are working to change our address for snail mail. We actually end up getting the mail quite late, and it can be quite inconvenient. So we're trying to find a French company to get our mail and send it to us on a timely fashion. We're looking for a French company because we need an address in France.

Tax representatives

We still have major issues on foreign taxes. A solution might be to get tax representatives in foreign countries. We are working on this to resolve this issue.
