The Digital Intelligence Event of the Season: Microsoft Experiences ‘18

If you’re lucky enough to be in the French capital this November 6-7, then you’ve probably already heard about Microsoft’s biggest annual Digital Intelligence Event: Microsoft Experiences ‘18. In a few days, over 300 leaders and industry experts will gather at the Palais des Congrès in Paris to share their experiences in digital transformation. From conferences, to hands-on sessions, to immersive workshops, you’ll leave feeling revamped and ready to innovate.

This new edition will focus on two major subjects: artificial intelligence and digital security. As one of Microsoft’s trusted partners, Revevol will be in the house to share our expertise on some of these topics (come and find us at Stand 94!) and to help guide you towards the ideal cloud transformation.

But with 10,000 square meters of stands, talks and techies, you’ll want to know exactly where to be, when. Here’s our guide for this year’s top sessions you won’t want to miss.
