We had a great week in Las Vegas at Microsoft Inspire with a record-breaking 18,000+ registered attendees! Thank you to our partners who joined us, and to the viewers around the world who helped us reach more than 44,000 live stream views. It was a groundbreaking year as we brought Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready to the same city during the same week, and we’re thrilled to have kicked off the fiscal year with all of you.
There was much to see and do, from thought-provoking Corenotes and engaging sessions to an abundance of networking opportunities. For an overview, here are a few highlights:
Corenote speeches from top Microsoft executives
Thousands of partners filled T-Mobile Arena to hear Corenote speeches from top Microsoft executives, including Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Business Judson Althoff, Corporate Vice President for One Commercial Partner Gavriella Schuster, and more.
We learned about new industry-specific solutions, strategies to help partners attract new customers and scale their businesses, and training and readiness opportunities. Plus, for the first time ever, Satya Nadella delivered a shared Corenote to both Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready attendees, creating a more united One Microsoft than ever before.
A wealth of learning opportunities
With 589 sessions, there was no lack of opportunities to learn. Session topics included Modern Workplace, Data and AI, Applications and Infrastructure, Business Applications, Industry, Business Leadership, and Partnering with Microsoft. It was impossible to catch them all, so we’ve listed the majority of the Microsoft Inspire sessions on demand—check them out to continue learning about ways to scale your business and your customers’ businesses.
Endless networking opportunities
Between the happy hours in the Commons, the 7,715 meetings scheduled through the MyInspire connection tool, the shared Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready One Celebration, and all of the action on social media—including a whooping 43,000+ tweets using #MSInspire during the event—there were extensive opportunities to connect with both Microsoft partners and employees at the event and online. But even though the event is over, the conversation doesn’t have to end. Head over to the Microsoft Partner Community to keep them going all year long.
