Microsoft will be hosting it’s first 2020 digital event starting tomorrow with Microsoft Business Applications Summit. Microsoft has announced they plan to host all of their events as digital-only until July 2021. This will likely impact events like Microsoft Build in 2020 and 20201. Given the digital nature of the events, many of the event dates have been adjusted such as Microsoft Inspire, which is usually a four-day event for partners, and it is now a 2-day online event. The one upside are the events now have free registration so more people will have the opportunity to register and participate in the event. So, whether you normally attend or would be attending for the first time, we encourage you to check out the events and register for free.
Microsoft Business Applications Summit – May 6
With a focus on Microsoft business applications, customers and partners will come together to learn how to create end-to-end solutions to drive more business. The agenda includes hearing from Microsoft executives, Q&A events, and attendee networking.
Microsoft Build - May 19-20
Microsoft Build is focused on developers. They will explore different developer tools and share announcements about upcoming changes to Microsoft tools and capabilities. Developers of all types are welcome, from beginner to advanced, there is something for everyone at Microsoft Build. In addition to learning opportunities, there will also be a chance to connect with a community of peers.
Microsoft Inspire – July 21-22
Microsoft Inspire is Microsoft’s annual conference focused on Microsoft Partners, and is the first event of Microsoft’s fiscal year. Details on how it will work haven’t been released yet, but we are anticipating two days of educational sessions, networking, and updates on products will be a key part of this year’s Microsoft Inspire.
