WHERE AND WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?
In Branson, Missouri, from 14-15 March 2019 with an option of full day workshops on March 16th. This picturesque Missouri city, famous for its live music, dining, shopping, and entertainment offers all we need for a great conference: stunning scenery, convenient logistics, a central North American location easily accessible from many major cities bringing in Microsoft experts from all over the world! Early March is the perfect time before large crowds arrive and ideal for a leisurely stroll through Branson Landing in the evenings for dining, shopping, or even some shenanigans. The address for the venue is 200 EAST MAIN STREET, BRANSON, MISSOURI, 65616.
WHAT'S NEW IN 2019?
2019 will be an EPIC year for NACS as we celebrate 10 years of bringing world class content to the Ozarks! We’ve come a long way since SharePoint Saturday Ozarks! Stay tuned for 10 year anniversay announcements as we plan for an event that is sure to create FOMO for anyone NOT in attendance!
In 2019 we are exploding the number of sessions. With 70 sessions to choose from, there will be something for everyone. Bring the entire team and make sure you don’t miss a single moment!
We’ve changed from a Friday, Saturday format (with workshops on Thursday) to a Thursday, Friday format (with workshops on Saturday).
Even BETTER hotel deals! Why spend thousands of dollars on registration and hotels when you can get the SAME content from the SAME speakers for a fraction of the price? Our venue hotel has already set up a room block of $132 per night for the event, but these rooms won’t last long!!

HOW MANY ATTENDEES CAN BE EXPECTED AT NACS 2019?
We are expecting up to a 500 attendees from all over the US and even a handful of Canadians to gather in Branson for the North American Collaboration Summit. Based on previous attendances, the delegates will be an equal distribution of business and technical audience, as well as professionals and end users.
WHICH TOPICS WILL NACS 2019 COVER?
NACS 2019 will focus on all topics based on Microsoft’s collaboration products stack, such as Office 365 cloud platforms, SharePoint, Exchange, Skype for Business and Project (both in the cloud and on premises), and cloud-only services such as Microsoft Teams, PowerApps, Logic Apps, Flow, Planner, and Yammer. These products and services will be approached from all sides: business, organizational, and technical. We will see a range of planning, adoption and strategy sessions focused on deciders and business users, as well as deep-dive technology sessions focused on administrators and developers. Please take a look at the list of focus topics.
WHICH SPEAKERS CAN BE EXPECTED AT NACS 2019?
You will see the most prominent community (MVPs, MCMs) and corporate (Microsoft) speakers at the North American Collaboration Summit 2019. Check the list of featured speakers already confirmed for 2019. The caliber of speakers at NACS is matched only by our sister event http://collabsummit.eu
WHY IS THIS EVENT ALMOST 10 TIMES CHEAPER THAN OTHER EVENTS IN NORTH AMERICA WITH THE SAME FOCUS?
Because this is a non-profit event, financed to a great extent by our sponsors, for which we are very grateful. All fees charged for attendees go towards helping offset our speakers travel fees and to fund food and activities for the attendees . The only goal is to get the world’s best experts and to share their knowledge with as many community folks in North America as possible, because “sharing is caring” (the legendary words of Microsoft’s Vesa Juvonen, just one of ECS’s top speakers). Does the non-profit approach mean less valuable sessions, reduced networking opportunities, lower quality venue and fewer fun elements? On the contrary! NACS 2019 will host the best-of-the-best speakers, including all Office 365 and SharePoint legends. There’s no need to spend thousands of dollars for world class content at a premium event. Plus, you won’t get lost in the crowd at NACS. Get to know the speakers, staff, and community from all over the world.
We are confident you will not find a better Office 365 and SharePoint conference experience in North America
NACS is organized by a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization Mason Jar Productions, we gladly accept tax-deductible donations to help us ensure all expenses are covered.
WHAT IS A "COMMUNITY-DRIVEN" CONFERENCE? HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM COMMERCIAL CONFERENCES?
A community-driven conference is a non-profit event delivered by people active in the community for people in the community. The organizers are not doing this for money, and all have their proper day jobs. They are organizing this conference because they love doing it. “Addicted to it” is a term we have heard recently. NACS attracts the best Microsoft speakers, as well as a range of MVPs, MCMs and MCAs, and we are convinced that this conference will offer the best content and the best speakers on our core topics – Office 365, SharePoint, Azure, Exchange, Skype and Project – in North America in 2019.
