This July in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the first time ever, Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready, Microsoft’s annual sales, marketing and technical fiscal kick-off, attended by over 21,000 employees from around the world, will take place in the same city, during the same week. This co-location represents an unprecedented opportunity for Microsoft partners to make meaningful connections with even more of the Microsoft community to accelerate the digital transformation and success of our shared customers. When we work together, we can win together-and achieve our mission of empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

Ready to be Inspired…together

With a wealth of shared networking, learning and celebratory opportunities, the co-location of Microsoft Inspire and Microsoft Ready will serve not only to inspire both partners and Microsoft employees with a sales kick-off for the fiscal year ahead, it will help us make more meaningful connections and build community between the Microsoft field and partners, while helping us all achieve our readiness goals-together.

Here are some of the shared Microsoft and partner enablement opportunities you can expect to find at this year event:

  • Shared Corenote Featuring Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella: At the Corenotes, held daily at the T-Mobile Arena, you’ll gain insights from Microsoft executives, partners and IT experts that will help you accelerate the digital transformation of our mutual customers.
