The BeLux WPC 2014 journey has officially begun!

Dear Partners,

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.

Greetings from Washington,

Early Bird and Group Discounts for WPC 2013 now available.

It’s a new era for Microsoft and you, our partners. That’s why Houston and WPC 2013 are going to be the places to be July 7-11.

Are you interested in forming new connections and learning about how to be a Microsoft Partner? Do you want to learn more about the Microsoft stack and how to grow your business in the Cloud? The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference is a global gathering of top Microsoft partners which provides the roadmap and inspiration to activate and drive joint business.

The past year has seen a string of product launches that has been unprecedented in Microsoft history. On the heels of these launches have been rapidly growing opportunities for our partners around the Cloud, Big Data, Social Enterprise, and Mobility. What’s more, is that partners are managing remote and highly mobile workers, expanding the breadth and depth of services, and are maximizing investments.

At the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, you’ll hear from top execs about the Microsoft strategy around key investments and about new opportunities. When you register now, you’ll save $200 off the regular price of an all-access pass – you’ll pay only $1,795! It is a great savings opportunity!

Want even more savings? Bring more people to WPC! When four (4) or more attendees from the same partner organization (based on the same MPN Partner ID given at registration) register for an all access conference pass, Microsoft will provide a US$200 refund off of the 4tg through the 10th registrants’ registration fee!

The power of success starts with you

It’s happening. It’s here. It’s now. Come prepared to make new business contacts, discover how you can increase efficiencies, and build your business plan for the future. The Worldwide Partner Conference is where it all begins.

Your next step: register for WPC and engage with the community!

We look forward to seeing you in Houston!


Toronto is ready for WPC2012

I literally just got back from a great week of planning and site visits in Toronto, and I must say I was impressed with the way this city is ready for WPC 2012.

From a partner experience point of view, it’s going to be a lot more friendly than LA. Hotels are nearby the convention center, lots of restaurants and bars in the downtown area. And Toronto is a very “walkable” city.

We have also spent a full day on the content of the conference. All related to the best kind of information partners can get. I cannot disclose too much at the moment but stay tuned because more information is coming soon.

So if you plan to attend WPC, start preparing now. We have got some great events up our sleeves, so make sure you register as soon as it opens.

I’m really confident about where we are with the conference to make this the best one so far.
