Coming up next; Microsoft Management Summit 2013

MMS_banner_180x150jpgThe day after tomorrow I will be leaving for the Microsoft Management Summit 2013 that will be held in Las Vegas. It is going to be a packed week with lots of learning and networking opportunities. As always I will give you an insight in mu schedule for the week. This year the event will start on Sunday and it will end at Friday at around noon.

Like said the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) 2013 will start on Sunday at 5pm with one session slot. But also sponsors like 1E are having their own 5 hour-long Configuration Manager related workshop. This year I am also helping out proctoring during instructor led sessions besides only attending breakout sessions.

Besides all the learning, there are also networking events/receptions to attend. On Monday the Welcome reception, on Tuesday the Myitform Party, a Dutch reception and MVP/TAP reception, on Wednesday the 1E party and on Thursday the Closing Party. Don’t know if I am be able to attend them all but as you see it is going to be an exciting week meeting all my peers from the community and Microsoft and of course my fellow MVP’s.
