We are less than three weeks away from the 2016 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference! Are you ready to connect with your fellow partners, get business done, and have fun in Toronto?

Get ready for WPC 2016

To make the most of the five-day conference, it’s important to prepare and have a plan for both your time on-site at the conference and off-site exploring the city. To get ready for WPC 2016, check out this list to be sure you’re prepared:

WPC Connect

Now is the time to start planning your session schedule and identifying the key partners you’d like to meet with while in Toronto. With WPC Connect, you can accomplish both of these things using the session and meeting scheduler tools. Questions about how to use these tools? Head to our What is Connect page for guidance and frequently asked questions.

Once you’ve begun planning your schedule, start making connections with partners by joining the new Microsoft Partner Community. Here you’ll be able to engage with other partners, get your questions answered, and continue to build and grow your community all year long.

Know Before You Go

For a comprehensive overview of WPC logistics, make sure you take a few minutes to read through the WPC 2016 Know Before You Go document. Within this guide, you will find tons of helpful information covering everything from transportation and attendee badge pick-up, to a list of Toronto’s top attractions and child-friendly destinations.

WPC Conference Guide

Then, when you get to Toronto, use the WPC 2016 Conference Guide as your go-to reference for information such as the conference agenda, venue maps, shuttle schedules, WiFi at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC), and safety and security information. WPC can seem a bit overwhelming, even to seasoned attendees; this guide will help you navigate the conference with confidence.

Finally, I’d like to remind all partners that at Microsoft, our values reflect a commitment to ethical and responsible business practices. We want to work with partners to improve on those values and, for that reason, we encourage all partners to carefully read the Partner Code of Conduct. While conducting business with our customers, Microsoft expects its partners to adhere to the principles outlined in this document. Adhering to these values will help ensure both successful growth with Microsoft, and within the IT industry as a whole.

If you haven’t registered yet, what are you waiting for? Join the conversations on the Microsoft Partner Community, and make sure you register for WPC by June 30 to receive your All Access pass for the price of US$2,195.

See you in Toronto!
