A Journey To Sitecore Symposium and MVP Summit 2016!

Hope all of you know that what is Sitecore Symposium? If you don't know then most probably you are new to Sitecore or your are not in the world of Sitecore :) 

Well, I just came back from Sitecore Symposium Event which is the must to attend event. Every year Sitecore organizes annual summit. During early years, it was known as Sitecore Dreamcore event. But now it's called as Sitecore Symposium event. Usually Sitecore arranges this Symposium event every year in Sep-Oct month followed by Sitecore MVP Summit.

Sitecore MVP Summit is free event and only for Sitecore MVPs while Sitecore Symposium is paid event and open for all. But if you Sitecore MVP then you will get some discount on Sitecore Symposium event.

221 Sitecore MVPs from 25 Countries






This year Sitecore MVP Summit and Sitecore Symposium was held in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA from 12th Sep to 16th Sep. It was my dream to be part of this event, I was following this event from many years, was reading the blog posts, was seeing event photos, following tweets. This year 2016 is very lucky for me, I got a chance to attend this event and I am going to share my journey to Sitecore Symposium and MVP Summit with you today.

I don't want to make this blog post boaring by writing much text. So I am going to share few clicks of Sitecore MVP Summit and Symposium journey with you.

One of the best part about this event is - you get a chance to meet with Sitecore team. You must be knowing these two pillars of Sitecore - Michael Seifert (left) and Lars Fl√łe Nielsen (right).
