Collab365 Summit 2016 In Numbers

It's now somewhat of a tradition that we share the statisitics from our conference so here's the numbers from this years Collab365 Summit!

This year's conference was biggest in many ways. We had more registered​ than ever before and were delighted to meet a team goal of breaking through 5000 before it kicked off. We also had more attendees than ever and also more sessions. 

One other aspect we were really proud of is the Live Show. We all travelled ot Redmond to interview some of the current living legends of SharePoint over a tiring, but awe-inspiring 3 days.​
