I hope those of you who signed up for more information already saw the email about Microsoft Exchange Conference 2012 (MEC) registration. The lost conference is back, taking place September 24-26 in Orlando, Florida at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center. Kudos to Dan Bobke for narrowing the coordinates down to the lake in Kissimmee in the comments to my last post (see MEC is Back!). I think he may have gotten the closest.

This is the Exchange event you will not want to miss! This will be your best opportunity to go deep on the next major release of Exchange. Going into beta later this summer, Exchange 15 will bring a ton of new capability and value to the table and we’re pumped up to spend the week giving you the end-to-end story of this next release in the family.

At MEC 2012, you will:

  • Get exclusive Exchange 15 content directly from the engineering team
  • Get hands-on experience with Exchange 15
  • Enjoy unparalleled access to Exchange team members, Masters and MVPs
  • Preview amazing new products from select vendors
  • Build personal relationships throughout the Exchange community

Visit MECisback.com and reserve your spot at MEC 2012 before the opportunity disappears. It is going to be epic!

Hi

I did not understand whether the registration includes a room or not ?

If not, what options do we have ?

Do you have any more informations ?

Thanks

Not applicable

I too, had to go into the registration before I got any information on the hotel. Was it part of the cost, was it on us etc..

Thanks

Not applicable

@Seb, @A'Dub: Accomodation is not included in the regisration fee. You have a choice of hotels at negotiated rates.

Not applicable

Welcome back MEC ! Hope you stay long enough that I can see you again :D

Unfortunately I'm going to Tech-Ed, so two conferences might be challenge in these days :'(

Not applicable

Is there any discount for UG Leaders other than early bird?

Not applicable

Bummer that it's not at the Orange County Convention Center, where there is more choice in hotels. :(

Not applicable

If Exchange 15 will be at Teched 2012 and MEC 2012 should we go to both? We have choices about what we can attend and I am not sure a lot of us can attend both in such a short time span.

Not applicable

@David - TechEd sessions have been posted - northamerica.msteched.com/contentcatalog.  There will be some great content on Exchange 2010.  Check it out.

MEC 2012 will be your best opportunity to go deep on the next major release of Exchange.  I hope we see you there!

Not applicable

I have never been to MEC before. What all does it offer to Exchange Admins? Is it simply what is to come and a good chance for networking or are there classes you can take as well for learning opportunities?

Not applicable

Are there any plans for a European event?

Thanks

Not applicable

Yes - anything planned for Europe/UK?

Not applicable

I hope to be able to go to MEC this year

Not applicable

How about bringing back the Exchange Fellowship?

Not applicable

When will the agenda be available? I don't see much information on the website.

Not applicable

Would like to know if there will be a second hotel added as the Gaylord facility is not acceptable.  Would prefer to book at another conference hotel with transportation provided. Otherwise, will probably rent a car or not go.
