The 2012 MVP Global Summit Sets New Records

The 2012 MVP Global Summit Sets New Records

  • Comments 4

Listening to community is the cornerstone of the MVP Award—these exceptional community leaders offer
invaluable insights into how Microsoft can enhance the technology experiences for customers around the
world.

At the recent 2012 MVP Global Summit, 1,457 MVPs from 72 countries sat down with 664 Microsoft team 
members. They learned what’s new and what’s coming in Microsoft products and shared their real world
feedback in over 800 deep dive technical sessions— more content than ever before at an MVP Global
Summit!

All MVPs participating in the Summit sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), which paves the way for
truly deep and insightful conversations with these community leaders. The private, closed door sessions
that take place during the MVP Global Summit sets an unparalleled example in community investment
and involvement in the technology industry.

Here are some of the highlights—

  • Scott Guthrie, Corporate Vice President, Server & Tools Business,
    presented three standing-room only sessions and shared his thoughts about the value of the MVP
    community.
  • Jason Zander, Corporate Vice President, Visual Studio, presented two sessions to capacity
    crowds and videotaped a direct message to the MVP community.
  • S. Somasegar, Corporate Vice President, Developer Division, presented a session at a
    private dinner to celebrate 30 MVPs of the Year.

Of course, we don’t just ask MVPs for feedback on Microsoft technologies at Summit—we ask them
about the event itself. This week, the results are in—and this year’s MVP Global Summit received the
highest marks ever!

We want to thank everyone for coming and for those members of the MVP community who weren’t able
to make it we want to let you know you were missed. We hope to see you next year!

  • It was a great summit as usual.  Thanks to all the hard work everyone puts in in to make it happen.  Just the logistics, hotels, and food for everyone is an enormous task.

    ....and extra special shout out to the Active Directory product group.  Great two days with them.

    Thanks

  • Too bad I wasn't able to attend. From everyone's posts in various places, it's obvious I missed out. Hopefully next year. :-)
