Welcome to the Future of Cybersecurity with Check Point at Microsoft Ignite 2019

By Jonathan Maresky, Product Marketing Manager, published October 22, 2019

Microsoft Ignite 2019 kicks off in less than two weeks at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando from November 4-8.

Ignite is Microsoft’s biggest annual event and an exciting opportunity to:

  • Meet and interact with Microsoft subject matter experts and executives
  • Become more familiar with Microsoft products and services
  • Learn about hundreds of third-party Microsoft partners and ISVs at the Hub
  • Support Diversity and Inclusion! According to the Ignite website, “The Diversity and Inclusion program is focused on empowering people of all gender identities, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and abilities to accelerate their technology careers.”
  • Connect with different communities
  • Attend one of the 23 Pre-Day workshops on Sunday November 3
  • Attend 1000+ sessions from Microsoft and partners
  • Boost your professional profile with Microsoft certifications
  • And don’t forget to have fun! The Ignite Celebration is at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure on November 7 at 7:30pm.

If you’re not already registered to Ignite 2019, it is probably too late; it has been sold out for a few weeks already, which is a testament to its popularity and value.
