Expect standing room only for these partner networking events. Microsoft is excited to share product and solution information with SMB partners to help them grow their revenue.

The Microsoft SBS Development team along with the Windows Vista and 2007 Microsoft Office system have announced plans to visit 13 U.S. cities this September as part of the 3rd U.S. SBS partner group tour. The goal of this tour is to take the Small Business partners and Microsoft team members to the next level of partnership and create even greater success with these Microsoft products. In an effort to better connect with the SBS partners, Microsoft team members will be speakers at each of 13 partner group meetings.

As an attendee at this free event, a few of the things you will learn first-hand:

  • The benefits and opportunities of SBS 2003 R2

  • Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services Version 3

  • Windows Vista and 2007 Office system features that you need to know about

  • How partners are making money with the Technical Assessment Toolkit ver 2.0

  • Windows Mobile 5.0 Integration with SBS 2003

  • Learn about the free customizable tools from Microsoft for demand generation

  • Microsoft will also be soliciting your feedback

Make a connection with the partners in your area and the Microsoft team, see the potential of SBS 2003 R2, Windows Vista and 2007 Office system, and grow your business with more profitability.


About the Training:
After two successful tours in 2005 reaching over 2,000 partners face to face, the Microsoft team was so impressed with the turnout, questions, and enthusiasm of the audience they requested another tour to visit more SBS user groups. In some circles, they are called “User Groups,” but we know the majority of members are actually Microsoft partners looking to join up with other SBS partners to create greater opportunities and results for their companies.


Target Audience:
Small Business Consultants, System Builders


All though there are no formal prerequisites for this seminar, attendees should have an understanding of and some experience with SBS 2003.


Be sure to view the tour schedule to see if it is coming to a city near you and then sign up to attend if it is!


Thank you and have a wonderful day,
