Thank you @Vesa Nopanen and all other community members for a great Table Talk. Definitely too short. 
During the session, you mentioned that there is a free community tenant available from Microsoft for organizing community events. I have searched a bit and found this thread which indicates that Microsoft dropped the idea. Can you confirm that?

If true, can you give any advice for those who would like to spin up a virtual community around Microsoft technology that will be utilizing the same technology to organize it?

@Michal_Z Several events use the tenant for community events. I don't know the current sign-up process for it. It is not a free tenant, but a team in a community tenant and it is meant for active communities & user groups. Some large events (like M365 Chicago Virtual event did) also utilize it. 

Perhaps @Laurie Pottmeyer could know what is the status there and how to get forward? 


We use the tenant, too and yes, Laurie ist the best one to ask. There is no official registration page.
