Here are some upcoming SharePoint events that will be taking place in May. You will find these events useful to help you harness the full potential of SharePoint. You can also meet other like-minded individuals who are using SharePoint to discuss problems, possibilities and solutions for your SharePoint environment.
What is it? A place to meet SharePoint architects, developers and other professionals who work with Microsoft SharePoint. The topics are varied but it is “an educational, informative & lively day filled with sessions from respected SharePoint professionals & MVPs.” The best part is that these sessions are FREE.
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

This year’s SharePoint Summit, now in its seventh year, marks the year that SharePoint releases SharePoint 2013.

Although there are many SharePoint conferences and sessions, a majority of them cater to businesses and organizations that use English. So what do you do if you use French? Not to worry, besides the SharePoint Summit that was held in Quebec in April, Conf’SharePoint, to be held at Disneyland Paris, aims to please those businesses and organizations that mainly use French. This conference has four major themes: SharePoint development, SharePoint infrastructure, SharePoint governance and strategy and customer return.
