Call for content is open!

Microsoft TechDays is both a deep-dive, technical event and a conference where you can explore the strategic overview of the ever-changing technical landscape. TechDays offers technology innovation sessions and provides leadership insights for both your business and personal digitalization needs.

This is a two-day conference for developers, IT professionals and IT managers getting them inspired to expand and deepen their knowledge around Microsoft’s products and solutions. Definitely a great place to meet new customers, business partners and share your expertise with them!


Today we generate more data than ever before. How can we use that data in more creative ways? How can we leverage it in the right context and turn it into knowledge, into actionable intelligence and make better sense of the world?

With all the data and insights, AI comes with privacy concerns and a greater need for security. How can we accelerate the path to compliance through technology and address compliance issues with technical data driven solutions?

Tomorrow is about bold ambition of fundamentally changing the way we operate our businesses and interact with technology! These and many other are the areas we will focus on at TechDays.
