Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2015 is right around the corner and I’m looking forward to engaging with the over 10,000 partners who will be converging on Orlando, Florida, between July 12th and 16th, 2015. I am pleased to announce that I will be participating at WPC as a Vision Keynote speaker, along with Satya Nadella, Kevin Turner, Phil Sorgen, among other Microsoft leaders.
Networking is always front and center at WPC – it’s one of those great side benefits of bringing such a rich and varied partner community together. In support, we are planning some unique opportunities for our ISV partners to socialize, meet new people and pursue new business. We are excited to bring back Tech Innovation Meetup, a networking event, and new this year, we will have an ISV Networking Lounge located in the Expo Hall. The lounge will feature daily presentations, opportunities to engage with subject matter experts and will be a great place to stop by and meet with other partners and Microsoft employees.
We are currently in the midst of judging for the WPC Partner Awards. We received a truly exceptional collection of entries for this year’s Application Development Competency Partner of the Year award and I am excited to also have the opportunity to recognize and honor the winners and finalists at WPC. Stay tuned for the public announcement coming early June on all the award winners and finalists.
As we get closer to WPC, I’ll send updates via my blog and twitter to keep you informed of the date and time of my keynote, as well as other key sessions you won’t want to miss. I’ll also share more information on making the most of your WPC experience.
Below is the ISV Experience @ WPC 2015 snapshot, which gives a glimpse into what we are planning. If you haven’t registered for WPC yet, please consider joining us in Orlando to learn, network and grow.
