Microsoft Tech Summit Singapore Jan 17-18 2018

The first Tech Summit of 2018 was hosted in Singapore, where we had another full-capacity event with under 3,000 attendees spent 2 days attending breakouts, workshops, theater sessions, participating in labs and connecting with experts. The Tech Community was there again to sign up new members and mingle with local MVPs and Microsoft staff.

As part of the standard agenda, there were two keynotes. Bryan Goode (General Manager, Office 365 at Microsoft) delivered the first keynote  sharing how Microsoft 365 fosters a new culture of work in both SMB and enterprise sectors.

 

 

 

Jeff Woolsey (Principal Program Manager for Windows Server at Microsoft) followed with the second keynote 'Microsoft Azure: Cloud for All' with a demo of Honolulu.

 

With over 70 different breakout sessions available, there was plenty of opportunities to connect with Microsoft speakers representing a wide range of products and services.

 

For a deeper learning experience, the Tech Summit hosts 3.5 hour workshops to a limited audience of attendees interested in learning how to drive usage and adoption of Microsoft 365 and Azure in their organizations. It was great to have many of our MVPs helping proctor these workshops.

 

 

 

Looking for the expo? The Hub is where sponsor partners, partner theater, Hands on Labs and the Microsoft Expert Center are located.

 

 

The Expert Center was a hive of activity, with many community members excited to meet Microsoft experts and get their questions answered live in person.

 

 

As an attendee perk, we had t-shirts to give away! Make sure you find time to speak to our friendly experts or community managers at the Hub to get a coupon to redeem for the official Tech Summit t-shirt. 

 

 

The Microsoft Tech Community booth is where you can meet the Community Managers behind the Tech Community. They are there to help sign up attendees to the growing Tech Community where you can access the slides from the Tech Summit breakouts.

 

The Partner Theater is where you can see short 15min presentations from partners and MVPs sharing best practices and helpful advice on usage and adoption of Microsoft products.

 

During the Singapore event we launched the 'Diversity and Tech' Community here in the Tech Community. We look forward to seeing this community grow to support discussion and best practice sharing on driving diversity and inclusion.

Our next stop will be in Birmingham, UK! We hope to see many of our local community members there!
