What to expect at your first MVP Summit

“What to expect at your first MVP Summit” – Here is a great article from Pat Richard (Exchange MVP)

Every year, there is a flurry of questions from newly minted MVPs about the annual MVP Summit. As a veteran of at least a 1/2 dozen Summits, I’ve created this post to answer the commonly asked questions. Hopefully, it should provide a good bit of info on what to expect. Feel free to ask questions in the comments below. This is a living post.

What to bring

Here is a list of things you should bring.

  1. Camera – You’ll be meeting a lot of people, putting faces to names. There are a lot of social events and social networking opportunities in which to record the moment.
  2. Business cards – As mentioned above, you’ll be meeting lots of people. If you’re in sales, tread lightly on the marketing push.
  3. Cold weather clothing – Seattle weather during the Summit time frame can be predictable (rain), and unpredictable (snow). It’s generally fairly cold during the time of the Summit.
  4. A suitcase with extra space. You’ll get a Summit shirt, you’ll go to the company store, and some product groups give out gifts. There is also the public Microsoft Store at the Bellevue mall.
  5. Laptop or iPad for taking notes during technical sessions and keynotes. I recommend Microsoft OneNote, which is available on both the PC and iOS platforms.
