What is MMS Miami Beach Edition?

MMS 2021 Miami Beach Edition is the second edition of MMS in 2021. This edition runs just three days instead of four and will be held at the Loews Miami Beach in Miami Beach, Florida. If you can't make it to our May event, this one may be the one for you. If you're considering other conferences, MMS is likely to be the most technical you'll find.

This slightly smaller MMS maintains most of the great things that make MMS special:

  • Sessions with two or more speakers
  • Extremely long Q&A for every session
  • Evening beer sessions where we take the last session easy after a long day
  • Smaller rooms and overall size to make sure you can get your questions in
  • Same great speakers as from previous MMS events
Should I attend both MMS events in 2021?

You can, but that's not the intent. MMS will always provide fresh content at each event, however as the conferences are 5-6 months apart, you can expect some overlap in content from May to October (more than you would get annually). If you can attend only one event, it should be the full 4-day MMS in May. But if that is already full or you had a scheduling conflict, then this 3-day Miami Beach Edition should help keep you current with IT changes as well as to make sure you are networking with peers and great speakers.

How will the Miami Beach Edition differ from May MMS?
  • 3 full days vs. 4 full days
  • No food court like MOA
  • Lunch is included (not breakfast\dinner)
  • Limited to 330 attendees vs. 500 at MOA
  • There's a beach! Pools, bars, city nightlife
What sort of sessions will I see?

Here is what MMS 2019 sessions looked like. Based on a recent attendee survey for wanted sessions, Miami Beach session topics will be:

  • Enterprise Management (ConfigMgr and Intune)
  • Provisioning Methods and Troubleshooting (OSD, Autopilot)
  • Automation (PowerShell, Azure Automation, Azure Functions, Flow, Logic Apps)
  • All Things 365 (Microsoft 365, Office 365)
  • Reporting (PowerBI, SSRS, PowerBI RS)
  • Endpoint Security (SCEP, BitLocker, Defender ATP)

If you're wondering if we'll have Cabana or Camping sessions, the answer is YES! We'll have something along those lines as well so you can meet speakers and Microsoft staff privately.

Where is the Hotel for MMS Miami Beach Edition?

Note that you book your hotel using our code (doing so immediately after registration). You manage dates and your own confirmation code from the hotel.

As you register for MMS on Eventzilla, a popup window will appear displaying the hotel code for you to use to book your own room at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. You will also receive this code via email after you register (if you don't see it, check  your spam filter). Use this code to book your hotel room. Don't delay!

Loews Miami Beach is located in the heart of South Beach, steps from the ocean.

Can I extend my stay?

When you register for MMS, we will send you a hotel code for you to use to book your own room. Your event registration includes a room for the nights of October 25th through the 27th (check out on the 28th). Your credit card will only be charged for incidentals, in addition to any additional nights you book.

Please book your hotel immediately after registering; failure to do so may mean that rooms are unavailable by the time you attempt to book. Booking hotel immediately also helps make sure that if you wish to add days, they'll be available. We expect many people to extend their stay and also expect the hotel to fill as a result. So don't delay!

May I bring my spouse to the welcome reception?

Our welcome reception has plenty of space (it's on a beach!), so feel free to bring your spouse\partner\significant other. You'll get 2 drink tickets, but we also will have a cash bar. Beer, wine, and appetizers will be served.

Adults only

What's the refund policy?

You can cancel any time up until 25 Sep 2021. After that, only transferring your registration to another will be accepted. Note that Eventzilla will might refund their fees for any cancelation. The registration page will be clear on that part.
