About pgDay Paris
pgDay Paris is an international PostgreSQL event held each year in Paris, France.
Started in 2015 as a natural extension to the PostgreSQL User Group, Paris Meetup community, pgDay Paris has continued to grow each year, bringing the very best of the PostgreSQL international community to the French capital.
With the exception of 2016 (possibly due to the nuit debout), pgDay Paris has continued to grow over the years. In 2020, we are aiming for 200 attendees.
pgDay Paris 2020 is primarily organized by the following people:

Conferences such as pgDay Paris are quite expensive to produce, and the money comes from our generous sponsors as well as from registrations. As a community conference for an open-source project, we strive to keep prices as low as possible for both parties. We also aim to have a balanced budget with no deficit, which means that we usually make some amount of profit.
All proceeds from pgDay Paris go to PostgreSQL Europe, a non-profit organization that uses the funds “…to help promote PostgreSQL in and around Europe”. See their website for more details.
