New 2-Day Pass Introduced for Worldwide Partner Conference!

Many partners have expressed that they cannot afford to attend WPC due to the cost or the fact that they can’t take that much time out of the field.  There is good news!  A new 2-day pass has been announced.  Partners, if you were looking for a cost-effective way to attend WPC, this is your opportunity and this is THE year to attend with all the changes to the partner network!  When you register be sure to use the special promotion code in the invite below.


As of last night, June 3rd, NCA partners who are flying out of Minneapolis, can book a ticket for $315 on AirTran.  There are also still rooms available ranging anywhere from $179 – $209 and up.  However, a lot of the less costly options are quickly disappearing.  Basically, here’s the breakdown for a partner from Minneapolis to attend WPC for 2 days.


2-Day Pass           $   995

Airfare                  $   315

Hotel                     $   440 (2 nights @ $220/night)

TOTAL:                  $1,750


This is a savings of $1,200 over the cost to attend the entire event!


ACTION REQUESTED – sign up for WPC today then hop on WPC Connect and start entering in your daily schedule; try and connect with as many people as possible during WPC!


As always, let me know if you have any questions regarding this information.


Cheers to a great year!!

You’re Personally Invited to WPC


At WPC 2010, you will receive numerous opportunities to network with other partners and Microsoft employees; gain a valuable understanding of Microsoft’s new cloud strategy; and learn information about new products and programs that will be announced at the conference.


As a result of partner feedback, we are offering several different options for attendance this year including the, recently announced, 2-Day Pass:

·          2 Day Pass* – $995. Note: This pass can only be used for Wednesday –Thursday only. To take advantage of this special offer, enter PT2DJT6M into the registration code field.

Can you attend the conference for only two days or want to bring additional team members for a shorter time span at the conference? Are you interested in doing a deep dive on driving business with your SMB customers? This is the perfect option for you. Attend Wednesday and Thursday to participate in sessions focused on the SMB space.  Additionally, you are invited to join me for the US Central Region Awards & Strategy Session as well as a special Disti TPAM Managed Partner Appreciation Luncheon.


I will be attending WPC and would love the opportunity to meet with you in person and would be happy to facilitate introductions with other Microsoft attendees who you are interested in meeting with. I’m looking for your commitment to attend this year’s conference. I’m asking that you please let me know as soon as possible whether you or another member of your team plan to attend.


Below I have highlighted some of the available sessions for taking advantage of the 2-Day pass option*.  This is, by far, the best deal if you are wanting to attend and may not have the availability or resources to attend for the whole week.
