At Microsoft Inspire, our largest annual partner event, thousands of partners from all over the world come together to network, learn from, and collaborate with IT experts, tech visionaries, and Microsoft personnel. The next Microsoft Inspire will be hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 15-19, 2018, and we are already preparing to make it the best yet!

As a Microsoft Inspire attendee, there are plenty of opportunities to grow your business at the conference. But as a Sponsor or Exhibitor, there are even more opportunities. Being a Microsoft Inspire Sponsor or Exhibitor will help you:

  • Make face-to-face connections with thousands of innovative partners, Microsoft team members, and IT leaders from around the globe.
  • Gain valuable insight from Vision Keynotes and sessions that will help you drive true business transformation for your business and your customers.
  • Build a strong network of qualified partners and customers interested in your solutions.

The perks of being a Microsoft Inspire Sponsor or Exhibitor

With past attendance of roughly 18,000 people from over 140 countries, Microsoft Inspire offers unmatched opportunities for partners looking to grow their business. But don’t just take our word for it. Listen to Jenn Martin, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at BitTitan, Microsoft Inspire Sponsor since 2009, explain why participating at Microsoft Inspire is so valuable:

Being a Microsoft Inspire Sponsor or Exhibitor gives you the chance to showcase your solutions to thousands of attendees interested in what you have to offer. Mike Ehlenberger, GM/VP of the ScreenBeam business unit at Actiontec, discusses how the audience at Microsoft Inspire is a great fit for their business.

“The audience at [Microsoft] Inspire is exactly who we’re looking to connect with….Their business motions align nicely with our go to market efforts, and we find that attendees see us as incredibly relevant to their business as our solutions are a natural fit.”
– Mike Ehlenberger, GM/VP of ScreenBeam business unit, Actiontec

Do more at Microsoft Ready

In 2018, Microsoft Inspire will co-locate with Microsoft Ready, Microsoft’s largest internal readiness event, for the very first time. With the two events being held during the same week in the same city, we expect a total audience of over 30,000 attendees. This exciting new twist on the event our partners know and love will offer our Sponsors and Exhibitors an increased opportunity to meet with partners, plus Microsoft field representatives and executives.

“Being at [Microsoft] Ready gives us the opportunity to engage the global sales organization in person….Having the opportunity to tell our story, and get real-time feedback sets us up for success, and helps us drive meaningful narrative when we engage with Microsoft’s teams around the world.”
– Mike Ehlenberger, GM/VP of ScreenBeam business unit, Actiontec
