To wrap it up
It is a mind blowing event, you meet great people that you follow online (twitter, blogger) for your daily work and for monitoring the trends. Special thanks to VALOTeam for the whisky intranet party J
It is also a great way to meet sponsors, mostly products running on SharePoint / O365 ecosystem, filling the void between business requirements and out of the box features of SharePoint.
Happy Sharepointing and/or Christmas holidays J
