Agenda

Content is delivered via deep technical breakout sessions as well as highly interactive sessions where attendees evaluate plans or share community feedback. Breakout sessions are aligned to the MVP Award Program taxonomy. Although some sessions will be exclusive to specific technologies, most sessions will be open so that you can participate in all areas regardless of Award Category.

The MVP Summit will host technical and interactive breakout sessions from all Award Categories on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Some product groups are offering additional optional activities on Thursday and/or Friday. As a reminder, the event only covers your hotel through Wednesday evening (Sunday – Wednesday, 4 nights). Any additional nights will be at your own cost.
