4 essential resources to download for WPC

US Partner Experience wristbands

Your US Partner Experience wristband is not only your ticket to the US Celebration on Tuesday night, it offers a simple way to obtain US event information and lets you share your US Partner conference experiences with your social networks. Pre-register for your RFID-enabled wristband in the US Regional Lounge on Sunday night during the Welcome Reception (for delivery or pickup on Monday) or register for and pick up your wristband on Monday or Tuesday. The Windows 10 US Team has partnered with us to bring you this fun way to engage during WPC.
