Save the Date: SUSECON 2024 is 17 – 19 June


It is beautiful in June, in Berlin!

I am very excited about the upcoming SUSECON 2024, to be held at the Estrel Congress Center in Berlin, 17-19 June. 

Featuring our theme Choice Happens, our annual global event brings customers, partners, and the entire community together to discuss business and technical opportunities and how to successfully leverage the right open source solutions – both today and in the future. 

We are planning two and a half days of great content, including in-depth technical tutorials, hands-on labs, free certification testing and customers sharing first-hand experiences. 

From innovations of individual products all the way to complete solutions, we have so much to share. What better time to bring together technology experts, practitioners and decision makers to showcase innovations and successful projects and learn from each other as part of the broad SUSE community.

We would love to see you there and there are plenty of ways to get involved in this year’s show outside of traditional attendance. 

  • Call for Papers: Submit your ideas to host a session; we especially welcome collaborations with customers or partners; open until 23 February
  • Sponsorship Prospectus: Become a sponsor; open until 20 May
  • Customer Awards: For the first time this year we’re excited to launch our SUSE Choice Awards, celebrating customers who use our solutions to not only drive business success but also create positive impacts on the economy, environment, and society. Apply today; nominations are open until March 7. 

All of this combined with leadership keynotes, content specifically curated for business decision makers, and an expo hall with a myriad of demos, makes me believe that it is indeed going to be a beautiful June in Berlin! Registration will open on March 5.
