Why Attend?

The 2016 Calgary Data Management Symposium, Tradeshow & AGM is a great opportunity for individuals in the petroleum data management industry, from Data Analysts to CEOs, to find out what is new in the industry, share experiences and knowledge, and network with peers and colleagues.  Our conferences are more than just our data model, but an opportunity to be a part of the Data Management Community and keep up to date with the latest and greatest.

Agenda & Schedule

Our Agenda is now available!



The Calgary Data Management Symposium, Tradeshow & AGM will once again be returning to the Telus Spark Science Centre, located at 220 St. George's Drive NE,Calgary, AB, T2E 5T2.  More information about the Telus Spark is available on their website:

Room Block

A small room block was been set up for out-of-town guests who need accommodations at the Sandman Hotel, Calgary City Centre for a rate of $129/night +taxes. This room block has now expired but we recommend at least trying the Group Name (PPDM Calgary Symposium) or Group Reservation #800356 to see if they will give you the discounted rate.

Transportation & Parking

Free Parking will be available at the Telus Spark during the Symposium - download this sheet for the parking codes. The Calgary Transit train (Saddletowne Train) can also be taken at a low cost to the 'Zoo' station, which is about a 10 minute walk from the facility - please note that payment will be required to travel to the Zoo Station of $3.00 each way. The Welcome Reception at the Hyatt is located within the Free Fare Zone so no payment will be required to travel to it (please use the "Centre Street Station" to get to the Hyatt). A Calgary Transit Map can be found at this link, and you can visit to find the schedules and plan your trip.  Due to low usage in previous years, no shuttle will be organized for 2016.

Welcome & Anniversary Receptions

This year the Symposium programming will include two networking receptions.

The Welcome Reception, sponsored by Expert System, will take place at the Catch Balcony on the second floor of the Hyatt Regency - 100 - 8th Avenue SE, Calgary, Alberta, between 5 and 7pm, on October 24. This informal reception will give attendees a chance to catch up with each other in a more relaxed environment before the sessions begin on October 25.  Located right on the C-Train tracks, this event will be easy to drop by after work to say hello.

In recognition of PPDM's 25th Anniversary, this year's Tradeshow Reception at the Telus Spark on October 25 will be our Anniversary Reception and will feature some special elements to celebrate this important milestone. We hope attendees will plan to stay, meet with the exhibitors, and partake in the celebrations following the day of sessions and AGM.
