Worldwide Partner Conference 2010 Registration is Now Open! Info and details for you.


The time has come and registration for Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference 2010 in Washington D.C. is now open!  For those of you familiar with WPC, you know that this is the annual event where thousands of Microsoft Partners from all around the world come together in a single location with thousands of Microsoft employees for one of the largest networking events around.  It is your opportunity to hear all about the plans, ideas, strategies, and more coming from Microsoft in the upcoming year(s) and the new and increasing opportunities available to all of the Microsoft Partners around the world.  It is also probably the best opportunity to interact with and network with not only the Microsoft people at the event (product teams, field sales teams, managers, senior leaders, developers, and so many more), but also all of your peers that you know already and have yet to meet from all over the globe!  Be sure to come back and register for WPC Connect, which will be coming online in the next few weeks, which allows you to find other attendees with similar interests as you and setup established or impromptu meetings at WPC to better increase your networking capabilities.

WPC 2010 runs from Sunday, July 11th through Thursday, July 15th, with sessions actually beginning on the 12th.  As in years past, we have several items scheduled for the 11th, such as: Microsoft Partner 101, Day of Giving, a World Cup Party, and the Welcome Reception & Community Party.  You can see the full agenda online.  Want to find out what people are saying about WPC 2010?  Be sure to check out the WPC 2010 Social Page where you can see current conversations on Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and more.

This year, you can choose to attend and participate in WPC2010 through a variety of conference passes:

  • All Access Event Pass: US$1795.00
  • Day Pass: US$650.00
  • Expo Only Week Pass: US$150.00
  • Guest Pass: US$300.00

Also remember to get your nominations for WPC 2010 awards in as your time is coming to an end for those.

I look forward to seeing you all at Worldwide Partner Conference and catching up with all of you that I have not seen in awhile, as well as getting to meet those of you that I have not had the pleasure to meet yet.  I’ll be bringing you more information about WPC 2010 over the next few months and then also during WPC 2010, so if you are interested, be sure to keep an eye on my various online resources for the latest.  For instance, some of you may remember the contest I did at WPC last year where I ran a contest to give away free stuff to anyone who could follow my clues provided through my Twitter account and my Blog to locate me at WPC.  I’m not sure what this year will bring, but the only way to know is to keep informed. 🙂
