The Microsoft 365 Conference
Hosted in Las Vegas, USA, the Microsoft 365 Conference is by far the largest in-person gathering you can attend with the Microsoft Community. The event boasts 150 speakers, 200 sessions, and 20 workshops, dealing with the Power Platform, SharePoint, Teams, and Microsoft 365. If you want your Power Platform learning to come with a little pizazz, there is no bigger way to do it than in Vegas. The event takes place on May 2-4, 2023, with workshops to follow.
The Microsoft Power Platform Conference
Similar to the Microsoft 365 Conference, this event is sponsored by Microsoft, and is the first ever official event to be based only on the Power Platform! Therefore, instead of having to carefully choose your track or sessions, all 150+ sessions at this event in Las Vegas will apply to the Power Platform in some way. This makes it a no-brainer to recommend for Power Platform users looking for a unique in-person experience for themselves. Taking place on October 3-5 2023, with workshops before and after.
