It’s time for you to pack your bags and prepare for your trip to London for INTEGRATE 2017 — the biggest Integration focused conference of the year. We are almost there! (just a week away before the event). We decided to write this blog with some last minute information to make it easy for you to attend the event. If you still haven’t booked your tickets, we have the last 10 tickets up for grabs on a first come first serve basis. Don’t miss out the chance to be at INTEGRATE 2017!
We are expecting close to 380+ attendees this year for INTEGRATE 2017. It’s quite amazing to see the response year after year for this event and the amount of hope the folks in the Microsoft Integration Community have on BizTalk360 to consistently and successfully organize this event. We will be able to present you the exact stats on the first day of the event.
Kings Place Events
90 York Way, London, N1 9AG.
The venue is located in the heart of London. Just a five minute walk from Kings Cross and St. Pancras International Stations. If you are travelling from:

The registration desk will be open from 0730 hrs on Day 1. To ease the registration process, there will be 4 booths and will be categorized alphabetically (as per your first name) for you to register on the 1st day. You will be provided your conference ID badges. Please remember to wear your badge at all times.
The easiest way to make your way through the event venue is to follow the signage or simply reach out to one of our volunteers for any assistance.
Day 1 – It’s all Microsoft, Microsoft, and Microsoft sessions….
You simply cannot miss Day 1 of INTEGRATE 2017! We have lined up 9 sessions from the Microsoft Product Group team starting off with the keynote speech by Jim Harrer on what’s happened in the Hybrid Integration Platform over the past year and how AI is changing the way Microsoft thinks about enterprise application integration. The subject matter of interest then slowly shifts to BizTalk, Enterprise Messaging, and finally into the vast ocean of Azure related topics like Event Hubs, Logic Apps, Azure Functions, Microsoft Flows, and API Management. And probably, this is the best day you can get your questions answered from the Microsoft Product Group or the community team present at the event. As Saravana Kumar, founder/CTO of BizTalk360 says,
If you cannot find an answer to your question in this room (INTEGRATE event), you probably will not be able to find an answer elsewhere.
Evening Drinks with Networking
We have arranged for evening networking after the end of Day 1 over some drinks. Enjoy your drink after an informative Day 1 at INTEGRATE 2017 and get a chance to meet fellow integration MVPs, the Product Group and people from the Microsoft Integration space.
The first half of Day 2 (till 1145 AM) is also covered with sessions from the Microsoft Product Group, after which the remaining 1.5 days belong to the Integration MVPs.
