What to expect from the first-ever Microsoft Power Platform Conference 2022


For the first time ever, in what promises to be an annual event, Microsoft are holding a Power Platform Conference in Orlando for an exciting in-person event.  

The conference is sponsored by Microsoft and Power Platform Conference and will be held over the 18-22nd of September 2022, to give you access to 5 days’ worth of insightful and thought-provoking keynotes, sessions, breakouts and more—all of which are dedicated to topics around Microsoft Power Platform products, including Power BI, Power Automate, Power Apps, Power Pages, and Power Virtual Agents.  

The event will kick off with 2 days of pre-conference workshops on the 18th and 19th of September, which will be followed by the main event days which run from the 20th through to the 22nd of September. 

You can expect to be inspired by Microsoft’s senior thought leaders, software engineers, community experts, and more professionals who are dedicated to enhancing widespread community knowledge and looking for ways to further innovate the ecosystem.  

Among the 100+ speakers, there will be over 150 sessions to tune into, including those led by the President of Microsoft’s Collaborative Apps and Platforms service, Jeff Teper, as well as Director of Technology for Microsoft Accessibility, Dona Sarkar and the Vice Presidents of Microsoft Power Apps and Power Automate, Ryan Cunningham and Stephen Siciliano to name a few.  

But it’s not just those part of the Microsoft corporation that will be sharing their insights, ideas, and plans for the platform, but the speaking panel will also host sessions from experts in the Microsoft community.
