Microsoft Inspire. It's the partner event of the year. And if you saw our blog post earlier this month, or follow us on Twitter, you'll know that planning for this year's event in Las Vegas is fully underway.
With so much buzz around the event, it's great to see so many UK and global partners already registered to join us in Vegas. But if you haven't attended before, or are yet to register for this year's event, why should Microsoft Inspire feature on your agenda? And more importantly, how can it help you grow your business and strengthen your partnership with Microsoft?
2018: Microsoft Inspire's biggest year yet
Microsoft Inspire has always been Microsoft's largest partner event of the year, providing a place to connect with fellow partners and Microsoft team members, hear about the future direction of Microsoft and the broader IT industry, and discover new ways to accelerate the digital transformation of our shared customers.
However this year, things are different. For the very first time, Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready, Microsoft's largest internal readiness event, will be held together during the same week. What does this mean for partners? With over 3,000 extra Microsoft managers in attendance, along with joint sessions and activities, you'll have more opportunities than ever before to meet with Microsoft field and executives, helping you make the connections needed to build your business.
Investing in your future business
Microsoft Inspire provides strategic insights that you can use to both implement in your business now and make plans for your year ahead. Insights that you otherwise wouldn't hear, from industry experts and Microsoft partners and staff that you may not otherwise get the chance to meet.
Maximising the value of your partnership
Microsoft Inspire attracts leaders and visionaries of the IT industry and provides ample time and space for partners to build relationships with the most relevant of these attendees. Because of its size, you'll gain more comprehensive information and greater networking opportunities with other partners than at any other Microsoft event. Only at Microsoft Inspire do you have the breadth of other partners' experiences and successes a conversation away.
You'll also be able to connect with members of your local partner sub-communities such as the IAMCP (International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners) and WIT (Women in Technology), and uncover even more networking opportunities and best practices.
