The format of the user days centres around a range of applications and topics presented by different Qlik universities users in 30-45 minute sessions.

We’re pushing the boat out………Thames River Cruise

On the evening preceding the event we would love you to join us on a BME chartered sunset river cruise on the Thames.  There will be a buffet dinner and a bar while you enjoy beautiful views of the Berkshire Downs.  The cruise will depart from the Reading Crowne Plaza Hotel at 6.30pm and return at 9.30pm

Meeting sessions with BME on 18 May

User days can be very busy and there never seems to be enough time to have a proper chat with individual university staff.  David Chisholm and Steve Sapseid will be available for sit down individual face to face meetings on the day preceding the user day, 18 May.  If you would like to have a chat and review progress of the Qlik implementation at your university, you can book a time on the registration form.
