About the Event

Announcing the 2024 edition of our annual AVD TechFest, an international festival bringing industry experts, vendors, and community speakers together to share and discover best practices for Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) technology.

Built upon the success of last year’s event in Edinburgh, the AVD TechFest Hosted by ControlUp is expanding to two days. The event will offer focused content for IT technologists, providing insights on maximizing AVD capabilities. Additionally,  a second track will cater to IT decision-makers, addressing the platform’s impact on employee’s digital experience.

This presents a unique opportunity for technology companies seeking to engage with a European-focused AVD technology audience. Join us for an enriching experience filled with knowledge exchange and networking.
