Networking

Connecting With Others at Convergence

In addition to the great lineup of sessions and content that Convergence offers, networking is one of the most valuable aspects of this event. Here are a number of ways that you can easily connect with others.

Convergence Café: Just like your favorite neighborhood hangout, you’ll find tables and couches where you can meet-up with others, productivity areas to utilize the Wi-Fi and recharge your devices, and some fun refreshments showcasing some of our Microsoft Dynamics customers. The Convergence Café is located in the Convergence Experience Center.

International Lounge: The International Lounge allows attendees from around the world to meet with colleagues who have traveled to Convergence from similar geographies. This lounge is located in the Atrium Café, next to Starbucks.

Roundtable Discussions: These sessions are an opportunity to meet up with fellow members of the Microsoft Dynamics community to share knowledge, tips and experiences in an informal environment. Table topics include industries, geographies, roles, enhancements – and more. Check out the Session Catalog for details

User Groups: Spend some time with fellow attendees who are using the same Microsoft Dynamics products as you. The User Groups are located in the Community Building area of the Microsoft Solutions Experience.

Microsoft tags on badges: If you opted in to include a personalized Microsoft Tag on your conference badge, it will act as a virtual business card allowing you to share your information easily with other attendees. Microsoft Tag functionality is already integrated into our mobile event app, or you can easily download the Microsoft Tag reader.

Meeting points: Need an informal place to meet? There are five Meeting Points distributed throughout the NOMCC. Each Meeting Point location is simply marked with a “Meeting Point” sign and has tables and chairs, power, and Wi-Fi connectivity for your use.

Skype Stations: In addition to connecting with attendees at the event, take the opportunity to connect with others back home! Skype Stations with headsets and video capabilities will be available within the Convergence Café and International Lounge for attendees to utilize.

Meal Hall Tables: For your convenience, 50 of the meal hall tables will be numbered 1 – 50 for ease in locating fellow attendees during conference meals. All meal hall tables are for general use, but you’ll find the numbered tables toward the back of the meal hall.

Get Social! Visit the lounge areas in our Social Experience space to connect and recharge – and get an ongoing view of our social media conversations, live broadcasts from the event, and important announcements. Connect with others informally or join the discussion online: hashtag #Conv13.
