Hello partners!

 

 
 
 
Autumn is a beautiful time of year here in the U.S. The air is crisp as the temperatures cool, and the leaves are reaching the peak of their fall color. Every passing day brings us one step closer to WPC 2013, coming to Houston, July 7-11, 2013. You’re not going to want to miss the virtually limitless opportunities for you to make the kinds of connections that can extend your business reach and open new revenue streams.
 
 
 
I’m pleased to share that we’ve locked on our key objectives for next year’s conference. These objectives align tightly with Microsoft’s core objectives, enabling us to truly focus on creating an experience that positions your business to reach its full potential. We’re not talking about a conference that you come away from feeling like you’ve seen and heard it all before. That’s not WPC 2013—at all.
 
 
 
We’re energized! We’re coming to Houston ready to give you hands-on access to Microsoft innovation. You’ll be able to experiment with technologies and devices for yourself, so you can share with your customers your excitement and the Microsoft advantage from a firsthand perspective. We’re also intent on delivering an experience that gives you every possible opportunity to connect with Microsoft execs and other partners so you can build relationships that lead to business growth and profitability. And when we talk about Microsoft strategy and how you can build that into your own planning, we’re talking about a clearly articulated roadmap, with go-do items that are, first, truly actionable, as well as relevant and inspiring.
 
 
 
I know that it might be tempting to wait until next year to register for the conference, but the savings are happening right now. When you pre-register today, you can save US$300! That’s still a significant discount and at just US$1,695 for an all-access pass, it’s one you won’t want to pass up.
 
 
 
Based on what I’m hearing from you, attending WPC has proven to be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made for your business. Some of you are telling me that you’ve attended every year, and each conference is better than the last. You’re saying that Microsoft’s strategy and direction has never been more clearly articulated than at WPC 2012. But what’s really exciting are the connections you’re making. Partners from all over the globe are still excited about the relationships they’ve built from WPC 2012. In her blog, Candie Mitchell of Bit-Wizards talks about her first visit to WPC and how Bit-Wizards’ message, and reach, “will be spread even farther due to the new face-to-face connections with people who share the same focus.”
 
 
 
For now, stay connected through Digital WPC, so you can be up to date on all the latest developments. And, don’t forget to pre-register so you can save US$300 on your all-access pass!
 
 
 
Best,
