About the European MVP Meeting 2018

Some information about this event.

Because going to a summit in Redmond is rather a big investment for people from outside the US, we decided to host an Excel MVP meeting in Europe. This is the fifth time this meeting will be held so we’re celebrating our first lustrum!

During this two-day meeting we have presentations and discussions with some people from the Microsoft Excel team. Because NDA topics are part of the program the meeting is reserved to current Excel MVPs and Microsoft employees.

Yet again Microsoft has been kind enough to sponsor the meeting by sending over some PMs.


Our European Excel MVP meeting is scheduled for June 5 and 6, 2018


Infotron has been kind enough to provide us with a venue for our meeting:

The Dutch Museum of the Tropics

Tropenmuseum (well, actually it is in the basement, entrance on the left-hand side of the building, accessed from the parking lot)
Impact Hub Amsterdam
Linnaeusstraat 2C
1092 CK Amsterdam

Directions to access Impact hub are here


This is the schedule we have in mind

We’ll be open to receive you as of 9:15 and plan to start the first presentation aroung 9:30.


Hervé has been kind enough to provide us with a list of people attending and their pictures

Infotron perk

Infotron, the company that has created PerfectXL, will be our host this year (THANK YOU!). Of course Infotron would like to enable all participants of the MVP meeting to get their hands on PerfectXL. In my (JKP) experience, PerfectXL is an invaluable tool when reviewing spreadsheet models. So should you get into a situation where you are requested to review other people’s spreadsheets I would highly recommend you to try the tool.

Even when you are designing your own spreadsheets the tool may come in handy because it will pin-point all sorts of spreadsheet risks. I know we, as Spreadsheet design experts make less mistakes, even then it may be very useful to try the tool so you are prepared in case you get such a request. Even if it is just to be able to offer the tool to your customers. Infotron has very worthwhile affiliate offerings.

All attendees are offered a free six month subscription to PerfectXL. Interested? Send me an email and I’ll ask Infotron to create your account.
