I love to hear from partners all over the globe who say they wouldn’t think of missing our largest partner event, Microsoft Inspire. Their enthusiasm proves that the conference delivers real value. Here are just a few reasons you won’t want to miss it:

Get inspired by Microsoft leaders and industry innovators

At Microsoft Inspire, you’ll hear directly from Microsoft executives and product experts on topics that range from new go-to-market offers to artificial intelligence.
Having attended his 11th Microsoft Inspire last year, Rik Dubbink of CRM Partners says the conference lives up to its name.

“[Microsoft Inspire] inspires our management team to think in new ways, invest in new technologies, and form new partnerships. We learn the focus areas Microsoft is working on and discover new offerings our customers can get excited about.”
-Rik Dubbink, CRM Partners

Find more networking opportunities than ever before

With thousands of attendees from around the world, networking at Microsoft Inspire is unmatched. Emma Bateson of Vodafone Global Enterprise, who’s attended since 2005, attests to the wealth of valuable networking opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.

“[Microsoft Inspire is] a great time to meet with your regular contacts in a more relaxed environment, but I always make sure to focus on contacts from other regions that I see less often.”
-Emma Bateson, Vodafone Global Enterprise.

The conference is also a great chance to meet with Microsoft business, technology, and partner program experts to strategize about the coming year.

For the first time, this year’s Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready, our largest internal readiness event, will both be held in Las Vegas during the same week. So you’ll have even more opportunities to connect with both partners and Microsoft personnel in sessions, at The Commons, and at the One Celebration—a shared Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready experience featuring Grammy-winning entertainment, food, and fun.
