Great opportunity for Chicago area partners! Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, will be the keynote speaker at the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Annual meeting on June 18, 2009 @ 7:45am. As an added bonus, we have also just learned that the IL Governor, Pat Quinn, will also be part of the speaking line-up!
If you are a Chicagoland Chamber member, and affiliated with the Microsoft Partner Program, your company is invited to be part of the Microsoft Partner Pavilion. The Pavilion will feature the Microsoft Digital Life Experience with XBOX and Guitar Hero games, PLUS Microsoft Partner-Chamber Member companies. This is an excellent opportunity to leverage your partnership with Microsoft and gain exposure to both Chamber members and non-members attending the event. Anticipated attendance is 1200+
There are 3 ways for Microsoft partners to get involved in this exciting event:
1) Reserve your seats and/or table at the Chicagoland Chamber Annual Meeting. (You do not have to be a Chamber member to attend – contact Tracye Foy for a MSPP Chicagoland Chamber Meeting order form.)
2) Participate in the Microsoft Partner Pavilion preceding the meeting. We have a 6ft display table reserved for MSPP companies that are also Chicagoland Chamber members, at no charge. (Microsoft has committed to reserving 1 complimentary seat per MSPP Partner that is also a Chicagoland Chamber Member, participating in the Microsoft Partner Pavilion.)
3) Reserve your spot in the Chicagoland Chamber-Microsoft Partner directory that will be unveiled at the Annual Meeting and live on the Chamber website. Only Chicagoland Chamber members can participate: Please forward a high resolution jpeg logo and your company name, contact name, address, phone, email, website and no more than 25 words describing your core competencies.
Please respond back to Dana Snodgrass no later than 5.22.09 with your desired level of participation, so we can plan accordingly. We look forward to working with you on your involvement and seeing you at the event. If you have any questions about the event or chamber membership, feel free to reach out to me, Tracye Foy.
