We’re happy and excited to announce that we’ve well arrived in Washington, D.C for the WorldWide Partner Conference 2014.
This year we are present with a huge BeLux delegation. With no less than 176 Belux attendees, amongst which 136 partners, we have by far exceeded last year’s attendance amounts.
Today the conference was officially launched with registrations and a great welcome feeling in the convention center. We’ve also been able to enjoy a Welcome Reception and with the BeLux sub we’ve watched the Worlcup Finals in a wonderful venue during our welcome lunch.
Just like the previous years, we have organized a number of great side-activities with the BeLux delegation to enhance networking and accelerate our partnership. Of course we are also very much looking forward to the many interesting and valuable break-out sessions. We’re especially excited about the Vision Keynotes taking place on Monday at 8:45 am and Wednesday 8:45 am, US local time. Satya Nadella will be giving an inspirational speech on Wednesday. If you want to follow either of these keynotes, make sure to stay tuned because we will be sharing the link to follow the Live Streaming.
Thank you for now, we’ll be coming back to you with more updates and hot news.
