    I'm not going to any of these two, but looking at the sessions and the speakers I would probably go for the PASS conference. But I think you can't make a mistake, no matter which you choose.

    Both are good ones, I feel SQLPass is more user based and SQLconnections is vendor based.
    Attending to one of these conferences is worth and you can make few good friends too.

    I am attending, and speaking at both. Generally speaking, PASS is bigger and offers more variety, but the quality of the content is very similar.

    The individuals living in USA may not have problems to attend these conferences, but I think in rest of world it is quite different and companies do not know the advantages of allowing necessary professional to attend these seminars. If not try to get on your own.

    I like both conferences and have been to both. I prefer PASS personally, just because there's more content. You also have a lot more sessions addressing day-to-day instead of the big topics. Having said that, I learned a LOT at SQL Connections. Solid Quality Learning presents at both, and they always have great speakers you will learn from. <br /><br />SQL Connections is in Las Vegas this year, compared to PASS in Grapevine, TX (Dallas). So, if you're undecided on which conference to attend..... <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /> Hey, location is everything.<br /><br />MeanOldDBA<br />derrickleggett@hotmail.com<br /><br />When life gives you a lemon, fire the DBA.
