This year, from October 12 to 14, Microsoft will give both a digital and live version of its Ignite conference (8:00 AM in the Pacific Time zone). The live event will take place in Seattle, Washington, with a small number of attendees, but the digital version will be accessible to everyone worldwide.
Depending on whether you choose to join the online or in-person event, Microsoft Ignite, a conference for IT implementers and developers, will provide a variety of unique experiences. Everyone who wants to join in the former can do so for free and in a variety of languages, including English, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish. Microsoft will also provide 28 AI closed-captioning languages to accommodate more viewers worldwide.
Microsoft encourages anyone interested in physically attending the event to sign up in order to receive notifications when registration opens. The registration for the event is currently not active (it is anticipated to be available in late August 2022).
Microsoft claims that in addition to the digital and physical versions of the event, there will be two types of access to the latter: a free and a paid option. The distinctions between the two or the price of the latter, however, are yet unknown.
Microsoft has already revealed what attendees may anticipate, including demos, on-site learning, and meeting Microsoft professionals, for those who are determined to obtain one of the few available passes for the live event. Attendees at the Seattle Convention Center can expect to collaborate with Microsoft and partner technology innovators and professionals in addition to the sessions and content that will be shared with digital participants. Additionally, they will be permitted to take part in forums held locally by Microsoft and partner executives. They may also test out a variety of product demos that highlight collaboration and productivity, intelligent business apps, customer insights, novel products and services, AI and automation, IoT, mixed reality, end-to-end security, sustainability, sector-specific cloud services, and more.
