The SharePoint product team has been working with customers, partners, developers, community members, and stakeholders across Microsoft to answer the question: What’s next?
What’s next for the world’s most flexible content platform?
What’s next for SharePoint portals & Microsoft Viva that will enable customers to engage and align their workforce in new ways?
How will SharePoint evolve in the era of AI?
We are excited to unveil the next step of SharePoint’s journey at the Microsoft 365 Conference in Las Vegas, NV in early May. Join us for an in-person celebration of SharePoint’s past, present, and future – and build new connections with a full return of a vibrant in-person community event.

In many ways, the upcoming event reminds me of the ‘Future of SharePoint’ event in 2016. This event defined the product visuals we know today as modern SharePoint, introduced the SharePoint Framework as a durable way of extending SharePoint and Microsoft 365 UX, integrated SharePoint and the Power Platform, and ushered in multiple years of product delivery and community-fueled inspiration as SharePoint matured and new products like Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Search, Microsoft Viva, and Microsoft Syntex emerged – all powered by the flexible SharePoint platform. And most importantly, it clarified a commitment that remains true to this day: Our product making is rooted in the deep understanding of our customers’ journey and how we can partner with them to modernize and bring forward their existing, multi-decade bet on SharePoint.
Our ambitions for the next era of SharePoint are as bold as they were in 2016. As product makers, we are motivated first and foremost by creators – the millions of site owners, news authors, page creators, and portal administrators who inspire us with their passion and creativity to create, brand, publish & share stellar intranet content – across sites, pages, news, images, videos, and so much more. I don’t want to spoil any of the news you’ll hear in May, but you’ll be surprised by what SharePoint enables as you create and how it quickly it empowers you to achieve more.
I love that we will unveil and celebrate this moment in SharePoint’s history with our community. SharePoint has long had the best community in tech, and I’m thrilled that so many key product leaders will be present in Vegas this May. Leaders like Melissa Torres, who we refer to as the “Mother of Hubs” (Game of Thrones was big when SharePoint hub sites was released). And Cathy Dew, who founded ‘Women in SharePoint’ 15 years ago and will be on site as the expert in portal building. Denise Trabona, the design leader for SharePoint, will unveil our vision in Jeff Teper’s opening keynote. Naomi Moneypenny, an industry leader in AI and founder of products like Viva Topics and Microsoft Syntex, will be giving several talks. I’m looking forward to speaking on Microsoft Viva, AI, and how we can all thrive in an inclusive and diverse tech community. Dozens more designers, engineers, product managers, researchers, and customer success experts will be on site – ready to share, ready to connect, ready to listen.
Every new employee on the SharePoint product team learns about the power of our community. It gives us purpose when we enable the success of so many who bet their careers on SharePoint and Microsoft 365. In my career, I’ve come to believe that a key element of this community ethos is the in-person tech conference.
We can’t wait for you to join us! We’ll be there May 2-4 in Las Vegas for the Microsoft 365 Conference – you’ll learn best practices you can apply to your current projects, get a peek at the future of SharePoint at a critical moment in its product history, and make connections with the best community in tech. And we are all ears to your feedback and your own lessons learned. What you create dictates what we create.
Of course, the conference will also cover the latest on Power Platform, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Syntex, and Microsoft Viva and much more. There are so many reasons to attend.
Yes, in-person tech conferences are back, and the SharePoint team will be out there in full force!
See you there, Adam
