Over 40 MVPs will congregate in one room during the 2013 MVP Summit to share their passion, expertise and projects. The MVP Showcase started last year and quickly became a favorite event among attendees. This year, the showcase is bigger! In addition to MVP participants, product teams and organizations like Visual Studio, Surface and Imagine Cup will stand along side MVPs at the Showcase to highlight the newest technologies, collaborations and global community projects.
"The MVP Showcase adds an additional layer of networking, collaboration and fun to the MVP Summit," says Community Program Manager and MVP Showcase organizer, Kari Finn. "The response from last year was so overwhelming we knew it would be even bigger this year."
In this expo-type setting, each MVP, MVP team, product team or Microsoft organization will host a booth to demonstrate their work and speak with their peers. Below is a complete list of MVP presenters, we hope you can join us!
