If you want the scoop on Microsoft's strategy for our forthcoming financial year, before the Australian Partner Conference in Aug, this annual event in Denver is a must. The networking with other Partners and Microsoft'ies is the best thing about this conference although it's a long, long way from home. The parties make up for it though 🙂
Pre-conference events and activities.
Partners who arrive early may participate in events such as the IAMCP Golf Invitational, Microsoft Partner MS101, and WPC Welcome Reception (July 8–9).
More than a dozen keynotes.
Steve Ballmer and other top Microsoft executives reveal company insights around “The Technology Roadmap” (July 10), “The People-Ready Roadmap” (July 11), and “Our Destination” and other region-specific keynotes (July 12).
Hands-On Labs and 150 break-out sessions.
Technical Hands-On Labs will familiarize partners with our latest technologies, while Business Value Hands-On Labs will show them ways to improve their bottom line. We’re also offering more than 150 break-out sessions, plus tracks covering the 13 competencies, sales and marketing, and business leadership.
Unlimited networking opportunities.
