Microsoft Exchange Conference (or MEC for short) was an in-person event last held in 2014 in Austin, Texas. In 2015, Microsoft rolled MEC, as well as a number of other conferences, such as TechEd, into the mega-conference that is Microsoft Ignite.
This year Microsoft brought MEC back as a free 2-day virtual event. This virtual MEC was by no means a shadow of its former self. With 59 sessions dedicated to Microsoft Exchange and its adjacent technologies, this digital experience was substantial. Microsoft reports around 4,000 people attended MEC this year. Hopefully, with Microsoft switching Ignite this year to a hybrid experience, the next MEC will be in-person. (Fingers crossed)
At 59 sessions, here are the top 8 sessions I think every Exchange admin should watch.
Tip: I have included extensive notes for each session and the time each topic starts. You can expand the session notes under each video by clicking “Show more session notes.”
