I would like to try the advanced version of Filemaker pro, to see if it would be worthy to switch once the current license for my team expires.
Does anyone know if it can be done?
Welcome, sorysm! This page may give you a better understanding of what is in FileMaker Pro Advanced (FMPA) & FileMaker Pro (FMP):
If you are currently on a TL (team license), I don't believe their is an "upgrade path" to getting FMPA:
But, as this page seems to state quite often: "Contact Sales". It may depend on your license and if they have other "deals" to bundle FMPA with FMServer and the User Connections. Only they may know!
I also do not see a "trial version" for FMPA, only FMPro, FMServer, FMCloud:
But if you spend very much time inside FMPro for developing database files (creating, editing), then you would find that the features (as in the chart linked above) are just too useful.
Attendees at the DevCon typically get a Not-For-Resale copy of FMPA, as well.
FWIW, the trial for version 17 is now FileMaker Pro Advanced
The trial period is 45 days.
What kind of license do you currently have? If its an annual license, you should receive the email for the 17 maintenance release.

I thought I saw somewhere that it is only 15 days now. Where did you see 45?
When I downloaded a trial copy and installed it
It used to be 30 days. I'm not used to FMI being more generous.
You mentioned that 'Attendees at the DevCon typically get a Not-For-Resale copy of FMPA'. Is this a full version of FMPA or a trial version. Also, is this true for the London DevCon in October 2018?
Full version, but cannot be sold. IDK about non-profit donation. You should read the license on it. (Perhaps this was on the registration confirmation or in packets?)
And you’ll need to contact UK DevCon organizers for details on that.

Do you know if the trial version is limited in any way? I.e., can you only enter a limited number or records, etc?
No it is not limited in any way.
