Microsoft Set To Unveil Exchange 15 At MEC In September

Microsoft is set to reveal Exchange 15 at the upcoming Microsoft Exchange Conference 2012, in the first such conference to be held in a decade.

The event will take place in Orlando, Florida, running from the 24th of September until the 26th, and apparently, Exchange 15 will be the star attraction.

In a blog post, Michael Atalla, Director of Exchange Product Management, noted: "This is the Exchange event you will not want to miss! This will be your best opportunity to go deep on the next major release of Exchange. Going into beta later this summer, Exchange 15 will bring a ton of new capability and value to the table and we're pumped up to spend the week giving you the end-to-end story of this next release in the family."

Microsoft is promising attendees the chance to get direct hands-on experience, and also the opportunity to obtain "exclusive Exchange 15 content" courtesy of the engineering team. Visitors to the conference are being promised "unparalleled access" to Exchange team members.

Registration for MEC 2012 (opens in new tab) is now open.

Several sources have pointed towards November of this year as being the target release date for Exchange 15, but thus far Microsoft has been tight-lipped on the expected arrival time of the project.
