Snowflake Summit 2023
Practical Guide

ESSENTIAL INFO

1. Get your badge as early as possible. avoid the crowds that will be there tuesday.

2. Get a copy of the conference map if you haven’t already (attached below)

3. If you are interested in the vendors, then make a short list of who you want to visit. With 179 vendors this year along with Snowflake’s own set of booths make it hard to cover all of them.

4. Reserve your sessions early.  Already by a week ago many of the LLM ones were already full. (wow, sounds like AWS re:invent – such a wonderful experience of too many people)

5. IF you have a RESERVED session you actually don’t want to miss then get there 10 minutes early because supposedly at 5 minutes before they start giving away reserved seats.

WHY ATTEND & WHAT TO DO?

In this world of information overflow, it’s important to take a step back and ask yourself what you really desire to learn from the Snowflake Summit. 

Here are some some guideline questions to help you prioritize your interests. 

1. Do you want to learn?  If so, how do you learn?  

2. Do you want to learn more about vendor offerings?

3. Do you want to get certified? 

4. Do you want to sell? 

5. Do you want to party? 

6. Do you want to network 

EXTRA PRO-TIPS

1. If you learn visually,  you can check in your own time the conferences being recorded. 

 

2. There is not enough time for you to see more than ~24 sessions out of 431 over 3-4 days.  So do yourself a favor, ask yourself what really matters to you personally and where do you want to focus.

 

3. If you are not a partier or networker than skip the parties.  Also, pro-tip – remember going all out Sunday, Monday or Tuesday night can make the next day(s) hard on yourself and your health! 

WANT TO PARTY?

Here is an “unofficial” list of parties as well as if you can still register as of Saturday 2023-06-24.  Snowflake Summit Parties – 2023 Unofficial List
