What's in the plan for this year?
Awesome Venue. Expanded Schedule. More Pre-Conference Workshops.
Sessions. Labs. Certifications. Vendor Forums. Amazing Peer Networking.

This year's event has an expanded schedule with more time for more sessions expanded labs, the best peer networking opportunities around, multiple accreditation options, and optional pre-conference workshops. Our expanded selection of Pre-Conference Workshops and the acclaimed Microsoft Office for Mac Accreditation Courses take place on Tue, November 4, 2014.

And the core of the event: the sessions? They're better than ever! Great speakers. Awesome, timely topics for both IT and Devs. There are a whole lot more industry leaders, sessions, and even surprise speakers coming. MacTech Conference 2014 will be three full days — we'll end by 5pm on Friday. Not to mention our widely talked about evening events.

And, we're really excited about our venue: The Manhattan Beach Marriott. It's a beautiful venue, with easy access to LAX, overlooking a golf course, and we've secured awesome deals on guest rooms. As it did last year, the discounted guest room block is expected to sell out, so don't wait (you must be registered for MacTech Conference to reserve).
