What is MMS Miami Beach Edition?

MMS 2021 Miami Beach Edition is the only edition of MMS in 2021. It runs three days (starting on a Tuesday this year) and will be held at the Loews Miami Beach in Miami Beach, Florida. 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
What sort of sessions will I see?

Here is what MMS Jazz 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)
  • Microsoft 365
  • Reporting (PowerBI, SSRS, PowerBI RS)
  • Endpoint Security (SCEP, BitLocker, Defender ATP)

If you're wondering whether 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?

Loews Miami Beach is located 12 miles east of the airport, in the heart of South Beach

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!

Can I extend my stay?

Yes, but read this first:

When your registration payment is complete, Eventbrite emails 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 28th (check out on the 29th). Your credit card will only be charged for incidentals, in addition to any additional nights you book. Note there is a daily resort fee of $18 as well.

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 the 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!

How do I get a non-hotel ticket?

For locals who live near Miami Beach, you can request an unlock code for a registration ticket that doesn't include hotel. To start that process, use the contact us link on the Eventzilla site. We'll contact you to obtain a copy of your license. Note that MMS is a networking event as much as a technical conference. We think your best value will be had if you can stay at the hotel to get to know people. 

Where can I find transportation/parking options?
  • Loews is 12.3 miles east of Miami International Airport (MIA)
  • Uber\Lyft\Taxi all available
  • Valet parking: $31 + tax daytime, $41 + tax overnight

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.
