The number of attendees at the conferences has been growing every year. SQLAdria Conference in Dubrovnik has already become the real international event.

It was founded 1994. and in the same year it has become the regional user group of IDUG. The members of SQL Adria are companies, e.g. users of relational databases (mainly DB2) on the one hand, and vendors on the other. The members of SQL Adria are well known and distinctive companies from Croatia and Slovenia (banks, health and pension insurance institutes, finance agency, IS and IT support agency, company for electricity distribution,…).

As vendor members, CA, IBM, BMC, Compuware,… have been supporting our activities throughout past years. The main body of SQL Adria is the presidency, elected on annually basis. The presidency proposes and delivers the plan and the programme for every year, trying to address today’s challenges and interest of the members. It also confirms the terms of realization, and it manages incomes and expenses.
