24-hour online conference Collab365 was a blast!

The first of many planned Collab365 events, COLLAB365 Global Conference, a virtual conference developed and maintained by the community for the community, kicked off at 9am NZST and followed the sun for 24 hours.  The community expanded the vision for the event to include not only Office365 but also SharePoint and Azure and garnered the collaboration of more than 120 speakers across 6 continents, including 62 MVPs, 6 MCMs, and Microsoft product managers. Office Apps senior product marketing manager Jeremy Thake and Office 365 senior product manager at Mark Kashman presented keynotes.

The event consisted of three language tracks, managed by:

• Jon Manderville, Fraser Beadle, Hugo Esperanca, Andy Talbot, Hugh Wood and Mark Jones for the English track.
• Office Servers and Services MVPs Gokan Ozcifci, Patrick Guimonet, and Sébastien Levert for the French track and Alberto Diaz Martin and Juan Carlos González Martín for the Spanish track

Altogether, Collab365 drew around 5,000 attendees and an estimated online audience of 680,185. The on-demand video is available here.
