Encouraged by the great success of past conferences, we are going to organize a great event again. This is your chance to meet your fellow NonStop users and to discuss your requirements with HPE Executives onsite. In addition, you have the opportunity to get firsthand information and to learn about the latest strategic and technical developments on NonStop from users, HPE and partners.

The Westin Hotel Leipzig is situated in the heart of the city center, at a short distance from the main train station and close to attractions.

Welcome to one of Germany’s most lively cities. Leipzig is unrivaled: here, tradition meets vitality, primordial Saxon coziness meets high-tech business, and classical culture meets avant-garde. The Leipzig Zoo with its outstanding “Gondwanaland” tropical African rain forest.

You will enjoy the cosmopolitan vibe and find lots of space for creativity and new ideas.

The splendid city center near the conference venue is the ideal starting point to explore the city. Patriarchal town houses, historical arcades, Gothic style, Renaissance, Gründerzeit and Modernity cover more than 1000 years of history within a square kilometre.
