What a wonderful week of MMS 2012 news! This are really progressing, even from a community perspective. During a call early this week, community functions are starting to solidify and we should have great news on what to expect this year very soon. Our intent for community at MMS has always been to make it as easy as possible for everyone to connect with someone. It’s a much better conference if you don’t spend all the time sitting along the walls, tapping on your laptop, looking busy because you’re afraid to talk to somebody. So, we have even some additional events this year that should pull the conference wallflowers out of their shell.
One of the big ticket items, that everyone has been waiting for, is the announcement of the myITforum.com party at MMS 2012. If you’ve read the past weekly news updates, you know already that MMS preparation this year has been excruciatingly slow (even slower than past years). There’s a whole story behind this, and one that makes a lot of sense. Instead of rehashing for those who have already heard me rant on it, the rest of you can check our previous news stories on our brand new Microsoft Management Summit Community Resource page. And, yes…this week our party menu was finalized, and the sponsors have been contacted. As soon as we get approval from all the sponsors we’ll update you on all the details.
I was hoping to hold off posting this week’s news update because there are rumors that MMS 2012 capacity is at about 90%. I was wanting to verify that number before posting today, but again, turnaround on communications can be slow. However, if that number holds true or not, we are pretty stinkin’ close to selling out, which means all those who are waiting to register? Don’t wait.
If I happen to get confirmation of that 90% capacity number tonight or this weekend – I’ll post an update.
So, without further adieu — here’s the MMS 2012 news for the past week:
