This year, we're bringing our annual conference to you ⁠—  at no cost.

About TrendLab

TrendLab is an annual data analytics summit that brings together some of the brightest minds in the process industry (TrendMiner customers!) to share success stories, gain inspiration, and provide attendees with actionable insights. While TrendMiner will be discussed, the scope of TrendLab reaches beyond our software and into the depths of the data analytics world.

This year, we aim to bring the same level of education, inspiration, connection, and energy of our in-person conference and to make it accessible to all users, free of charge.
