  • Before you make any travel plans you should be aware that the event (minus the BillG keynote, which you can see live over the internet) is being replicated in many cities (sorry for the poor formatting - MS has only given sponsors PDF files for the info):

    As for the agenda, it's way too messy for me to paste in from the pdf.  There are 2 tracks - TDM and IT Pro.  They are the same until 11am (breakfast and keynote), at which time the IT Pro track has the following sessions:


    OCS 2007 Deployment (60 mins)

    Lunch (90 mins)

    UC Administration (60 mins)

    VoIP Architecture, Topologies, and Interoperability (60 mins)


    Security and Compliance (60 mins)


    The TDM track has analyst keynotes and an optional executive breakout, which ends at 3:30pm (IT Pro goes until 5).  There is also a Partner area at each event (you can find me at the NYC event on Oct. 23rd ).


    Disclaimer:  I don't have any idea how Microsoft is handling invitations or if they are even required for attendance.  If you're not sure whether or not you can attend get in touch with the MS sales folks in the city of the event for registration info.
