The SPTechCon keynote speakers lead an expert faculty offering more than 80 courses covering all aspects of SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010. Many of the SPTechCon speakers are from Microsoft; others are Microsoft MVPs, who are independent experts awarded the Most Valuable Professional designation by Microsoft to recognize their outstanding expertise and many community contributions. Most of the faculty are top-rated SPTechCon veterans, with new speakers added to share their expertise and voices.

BZ Media projects 750-1,000 attendees at SPTechCon Boston.

Many classes at SPTechCon Boston will cover SharePoint 2010, the latest version of Microsoft’s platform. Attendees will learn how to migrate to SharePoint 2010 and leverage its many new capabilities. However, realizing that many organizations take a gradual approach toward upgrading their enterprise software, there will also be classes at SPTechCon for administrators and developers using SharePoint 2007 and even SharePoint 2003.

SPTechCon Boston will have a trade-show floor where more than 45 exhibitors and sponsors will be demonstrating compelling third-party applications, add-ons, plug-ins, tools and services built for SharePoint.
