TechEd North America 2009 Update

Are you a member of the press or an industry analyst? Interested in attending Microsoft Tech•Ed North America 2009 (May 11-15), the preeminent annual technology education conference for IT Developers and Professionals?  If so, you’ll be pleased to learn we are taking a similar approach as last year and making sure that whether you can attend in person or need to participate “virtually,” you’ll still get easy access to the news of the day.


·         Attending from afar? If so, please keep an eye on our soon-to-be-enhanced Global TechEd Virtual Press Room, which will feature customer videos, spokesperson interviews, sound bites from the show floor and much, much more.

·         Want to attend in person? For registration details, please contact Megan Link or the Rapid Response Team. However, please note that we are focusing heavily on digital content to help out our “virtual” attendees, so standalone activities for press and analysts on site may be limited.


Need a little more info on the top level themes of the show? Tech•Ed will kick off with a keynote address (which will be available via online video) from Microsoft’s Bill Veghte, Senior Vice President of Windows Business and Iain McDonald, General Manager of the Windows Server Division. Bill and Iain will share their insight on why they think IT is well positioned to help organizations weather the current economic storm by helping to reduce cost and improve productivity.  They’ll also discuss the upcoming releases of Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 14, and demonstrate how these cutting-edge technologies provide the best set of tools and resources to help organizations better manage their infrastructure, from back-end services through client-side experiences, and the network in-between.
