Midway Edition is the 2nd edition of MMS in 2020. This edition runs just 3 days instead of 4 and will be held in San Diego instead of Minneapolis. If you can't make our May event, this one will fit the bill. If you're considering other conferences, MMS is certainly the most technical you'll attend.

But if that is already full or you had a scheduling conflict, then this 3-day Midway Edition should help keep you current with IT changes as well as to make sure you are networking with peers and great speakers.
