The Microsoft 365 Conference has become one of the most important in-person gatherings of the Microsoft community anywhere on Earth. We invite you to submit your original, world-class content for a chance to share with our committed community.

Schedule
The main conference takes place April 30 to May 2, 2024, in Orlando, Florida with two pre-conference workshop days on April 28 and 29 and one post-conference workshop day on May 3.

Audience
The Microsoft 365 Conference comprises three audiences: the developers who build solutions, the IT pros who manage and integrate solutions, and the employees, lines of business, and consultants who use solutions. 

Our goal is to connect the community of expert solution providers with an extensive and growing community searching to discover the best solutions for their technical business challenges. You increase your chances of selection by showing high value to any or all of these cohorts.

Topics
This year’s event is focusing on the critical transition toward an AI-powered workplace and we're looking to you to propose topics that forge the balance between remote, virtual, mobile, and in-person workforces in the world of AI-enabled business productivity.

We continue to feature the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, ensuring the inclusion of new products like the various Microsoft Copilot experiences, Microsoft Entra, Azure Open AI services, and the new Microsoft Viva tools, to name a few. We ask that your proposals include best and proven practices, clever innovations, tips, and tricks, and represent the modern, up-to-date Microsoft cloud, including Azure, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Viva, and the Power Platform.

The best session proposals smartly and succinctly inspire our audience to respond to the needs of today's and tomorrow's workforce using "the world's computer". The best submissions will explain how the various products and services in the Microsoft cloud are better together. Consider how AI, employee experience, automation, modern collaboration, hybrid meetings, and development platforms can intertwine to provide the most real-world value.

CfS details
This call for speakers is open now and will close end of day (US PST) on November 24, 2023. We are only looking for new content and not repeat sessions or workshops. You will hear back on your submission (either way) by mid-December 2023. Please be prepared to update your submission upon request following the Microsoft Ignite conference in November if new features and announcements affect your proposal.

We welcome international submissions as well as those based in the US. Note that compensation for selected speakers is the same regardless of where they come from.
