Final Timetable and Agenda for the Brighton and Atlanta BI Forums, May 2014

April 14th, 2014 by

It’s just a few weeks now until the Rittman Mead BI Forum 2014 events in Brighton and Atlanta, and there’s still a few spaces left at both events if you’d still like to come – check out the main BI Forum 2014 event page, and the booking links for Brighton (May 7th – 9th 2014) and Atlanta (May 14th – 16th 2014).

We’re also able now to publish the timetable and running order for the two events – session order can still change between now at the events, but this what we’re planning to run, first of all in Brighton, with the photos below from last year’s BI Forum.
