Are you ready for Microsoft Ignite? We’re less than one week out and have a few tips and tricks to think about as you prep and pack for Ignite. For starters, set your goals—what do you want to get out of the event? Next, what can you do now to maximize your time at the event? Follow people and podcasts, and set your schedule. Check out our Community Reporters’ schedules for ideas! These steps will help you zero in on what interests you most and keep you up-to-date on the talk of the event. Also, don’t forget to check in with your colleagues at the office to hear what training areas pique their interest, so you can share relevant ideas upon your return.

Here are 3 other things to consider:

 

  1. Dress for comfort – you’ll be walking a lot, so bring shoes you’ve already worn and love. Layers are good too, because sessions and expo halls can be overly air-conditioned.
  2. Power up – Your preferred tech toys take juice. Bring portable USB batteries and/or a small power strip for on-the-go charging to keep connected from morning to evening.
  3. Pack light – MVP Community Reporter Alistair Pugin has tips to save space and keep healthy with all the walking, talking, shaking hands, and swag-gathering you’ll do.

Also, check out this quick video by Laura Rogers, one of our 10 MVPs serving as Community Reporters. She shares what’s top of mind as she gets ready for Ignite. Plus, you can find a few other pro tips from Community Reporters Tom Arbuthnot and Dux Raymond Sy.

Let us know how you’re getting ready for a memorable Microsoft Ignite. Share your ideas to get out there, learn lots, and meet plenty of people!

Nice one!

I'm a little confused on the advice on dress code. There was an emphasis on comfortable until the very last line about "more professional"? So are we dressing for comfort, or for the office? Because collared shirts and khakis in Orlando is a very different level of comfort than say shorts or non-collared shirts.
