What is MMS Midway Edition?

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.

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

  • Sessions with 2 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 at MOA and San Diego?

You can, but that's not the intent. MMS will always provide fresh content at each event, however as the conferences are five 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 Midway 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 Midway Edition differ from MMS at MOA?
  • 3 full days vs. 4 full days
  • No food court like MOA, but we've personally tested the hotel food and it's amazing!
  • Limited to 300 attendees vs. 750 at MOA
  • Many opportunities for evening events in the Gaslamp Quarter
  • Fantastic restaurants, bars, nightclubs, city tours, and more for networking
What sort of sessions will I see?

Here is what MMS 2019 sessions looked like. Based on a recent attendee survey for wanted sessions, Midway 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 we'll have Survival Sessions! Same idea.
