At Microsoft Ignite 2023, we unveiled our new, unified software as a service (SaaS) analytics solution: Microsoft Fabric. Since its launch, the response from our customers and partners has been overwhelmingly positive. Fabric is completely reshaping how our customers work with data by bringing every data team together on a single, AI-powered platform. 

To build on this momentum, we are excited to announce the first-ever Microsoft Fabric Community Conference, which will be held from March 26-28, 2024, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This conference will be the most comprehensive learning event for Microsoft Fabric to date, with over 100 sessions across the three days. Here, you will have the opportunity to hear about the latest developments with analytics in the era of AI and get to connect with the Microsoft Fabric partner and product teams, customers, other partners, and Microsoft MVPs. Together we will deep dive into the latest features across Microsoft analytics, AI, databases, and our governance portfolio with workshops and sessions led by an impressive roster of community and Microsoft speakers—plus workshops pre- and post- conference on March 24, 25, and 29.
