Want to go to Microsoft Tech·Ed 2005 next week, but can't because it is sold out?  I've got some good news for you, and it's not about saving a bunch of money on your car insurance.  Due to overwhelming customer demand, we're excited to announce we've managed to create the availability of a very limited number of full conference passes to accommodate additional attendees at Tech·Ed.

These additional full conference passes are in an overflow seating area for the Day 1 keynote. This overflow seating price is $1,895--$100 less than the full conference pass. This registration will allow you to participate in all Tech·Ed sessions and activities. You will simply be asked to sit in an overflow room to view the keynote on Monday. You will still be able to see and hear the complete keynote, just in a separate viewing room.  This is the same overflow room that speakers, staff and crew use for the Day 1 keynote.

For more information about the limited number of full conference passes that are available, see http://www.microsoft.com/events/teched2005/default.mspx.  To register for Tech·Ed visit https://regp2.travelhq.com/teched2005/B/Main.aspx?Page=Login&rsvp=clickthrough.  But hurry, as the number of available full conference passes is very limited!  See also, https://regp2.travelhq.com/teched2005/B/Main.aspx?Page=Login&rsvp=clickthrough#, for a list of frequently asked questions.

Because this blog is about Exchange Server, I've included a list of the Messaging and Collaboration sessions below.  As you can see, there are more than 80 sessions devoted to Messaging and Collaboration, including Cabana Talk sessions where you can meet and engage speakers in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
