This year, Tableau Conference on Tour heads back to the UK and we are delighted to be a gold sponsor at one of the highlights of the year's data calendar. The conference, which will be Tableau's biggest in EMEA yet, will be held on the 13th to 15th June, 2016 at Tobacco Dock in London gathering more than 1200 data enthusiasts from around the region. Beyond learning tools and tactics to accelerate new-found data skills, attendees will also get to network and share their data stories with industry game changers.

Expect to get supercharged with data

Tableau on Tour has become increasingly popular, not only reflecting Tableau's rise in popularity, but our ever growing obsession with data. And Tableau's events don't disappoint. At the 2015 Tableau Conference in Las Vegas we were able to hear from best-selling authors Daniel Pink and Sir Ken Robinson, to the renowned astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson and mathematician Dr.Hannah Fry, all of whom have inspired new ways for people to see and understand data (read the highlights from their talks).

The upcoming London Tableau on Tour conference will be equally supercharged. The full run-down of the event is yet to be released here but with Tableau's own, James Eiloart, SVP EMEA and Fran├žois Ajenstat, VP Product Development headlining the event and the likes of physicist Brian Cox sharing his data insights, we can expect some big announcements and discussions for the data year ahead. You can keep up to date with the event's latest news here.

We are especially excited to welcome Simon Beaumont, Head of Information at Southern Health and Adrian Downing, Healthcare Director at Concentra, to the stage of our sponsored session. Southern Health is one of the UK's largest combined community and mental health trusts. Simon and Adrian, the two founders of Tableau's UK Healthcare User Group will be speaking about Southern Health's remarkable Tableau journey and how they have used analytics to transform patient care in just 6 months (read Southern Health's Story).

A big year ahead for Tableau

It's going to be a big year for Tableau, with Gartner already recognising its success and disruptive impact in the BI market for 4 years in a row (read our blog on Gartner's 2016 BI Magic Quadrant) and plans already afoot for the much anticipated Tableau 10 release. So if you're thinking about coming to the conference, book your ticket now to be part of one of the hottest data events in the UK this year. We look forward to seeing you there.
