As the name of the event implies, we are expecting SUNSHINE during SQL in the Sun this year in Scottsdale, AZ.  To view temperatures and other weather details, please click here.


SQL in the Sun will be hosted at the lovely Scottsdale Plaza Resort in Scottsdale, AZ.
7200 N. Scottsdale Rd
Scottsdale, AZ 85253


Some visitors choose to rent a car to get from the airport to the Scottsdale Plaza Resort hotel.  All major rental car companies are available at the Phoenix Skyharbor International Airport (PHX).  You can also take an Uber or a Lyft.  The PHX airport is about 25 minutes from the Scottsdale Plaza Resort per Google Maps.


SQL in the Sun attendees are encouraged to stay at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort hotel.  Visit the reservation page or contact Tracy Torngren at to get more information.  We do have a group rate available, and the group ID is 2265320.


YES!  You are welcome to bring a guest with you.  Your guest may attend all SQL in the Sun evening meals and activities for $200.  Please note that the hotel reservations, transportation fees, and other costs are separate.  Contact Tracy Torngren at to learn more.

Every attendee will have the opportunity to create plenty of custom content with the help of our ‘SQL masters.’  To simplify the following ROI calculations, we are assuming that you’ll build at least  two custom charts ($3000) in the Advanced Workshop Session.  Most attendees will have the time and knowledge to build several charts, but we wanted to keep the ROI calculations conservative. Please note the simple calculations below do not include all of the knowledge, training, networking opportunities, and other intangibles you’ll gain at SQL in the Sun.  Here are our very conservative ROI estimates:

Advanced Workshop Session: Early Registration ($3000 – $1,159) / $3000 = 61% ROI

Advanced Workshop Session: Regular Registration ($3000 – $1459) / $3000 = 51% ROI

The ROI for the SQL in the Sun standard session is tough to calculate because most of the immediate benefits are intangibles such as knowledge, training, expertise, etc.  So here are a few success stories from past SQL in the Sun attendees :

Labor Performance:  The attendee’s service department efficiency improved 8% within 12 months.

Work In Progress: The attendee’s WIP went from $2.2M to $500K in less than 6 months.  The 10 service managers who accomplished this feat all said that FIEE charts were critical in the improvement process.

Freight Recovery:  The attendee reported a $100,000 swing in parts recovery in one year.   Another attendee went from ~60% to over 100% in freight recovery by keeping this number front and center on a daily basis.

First let us know which session(s) you’d like to attend and whether or not you’ll be bringing a guest.  Once you’ve answered those two questions on the registration form, we’ll email an invoice. As always if you have questions about billing please contact Tracy at or 480.684.4846.
