Hybrid Event

As announced in April the PUG Challenge 2022 is a hybrid event with both the option to visit in person as well as to follow the event on-line. Nothing beats being at the conference in person but the organising committee has put a lot of effort to bring you the best possible coverage on-line. The conference can be followed from the PUG Challenge Conference site from any place in the world with an internet connection, even from your comfortable beach chair if you're still enjoying a holiday.

Even the entertainment evening on Thursday the 1st of September will have a special artist Keelan Leyser who will be showing his unique illusions with iPads, Drones, LED Screen, Robotics, Virtual Reality, Holograms and Social Media for all the on-line spectators. Read more about Keelan on his website.


For the on-site visitors there will be a networking evening on Wednesday the 31st of August with Viennese music and the Oktoberfest Beer Garden themed party on Thursday the 1st of September with dancing, live band and games!


Although we're only a few days away from the start of the conference, you can still book your seat either on-site or on-line. Don't wait any longer - rush to the Registration Page and make sure you will be one of the fortunate delegates of the PUG Challenge 2022 - the only in-depth OpenEdge focused conference!
