Sitecore Symposium 2022 is little more Special.

One of the largest annual Sitecore Event Symposium 2022 is happening in Chicago on Oct-17 to Oct-20 followed by MVP Summit on Oct-20-21.

Every Symposium is the most special event for everyone for the Sitecore Community but this year the Symposium is a bit more special to me. Why?

  1. Being the first in-person Symposium post pandemic and it would be my 4th in person Symposium. Plus the venue is at a drivable distance from my house. And the cherry on the top would be an honor to have my team from Johnson Controls at Symposium for the first time.
  2. MVP Summit calling MVPs from both years 2021 and 2022.
  3. Getting a chance to meet my Sitecore Community Friends after 3 years almost.
  4. Being very well known to the Windy City, I would love to guide my friends on must haves.
  5. Last but not the least – We will be presenting the Johnson Controls Case Study at the Symposium in breakout session under Shaping Your Digital Strategy track.

On top of all these, there are a lot of obvious reasons why every Symposium is always special. Please note the Symposium Agenda is out, there are 100+ Sessions from various Tracks. Off course it would be hard to choose the ones which you want to attend but below are my favorites which I would love to attend. The timeslots for the sessions are not out yet hence need to wait until it is published to figure out if there are any conflicts. Here are the FOUR tracks and my favorite sessions:
