Hello Partners!
 
The Worldwide Partner Conference is Microsoft’s premier partner event of the year. It’s your chance to hear about Microsoft’s vision for the future, discover new business opportunities, learn, teach and connect with peers. It’s where leaders and visionaries of the IT industry gather to spur innovation and growth.
 
With past attendance topping 16,000 people from over 140 countries, we’re here to help you navigate your WPC experience and become familiar with the on-site floor spaces, key events and our exciting program for new attendees.
 
At Microsoft, we want to help you get the most out of WPC. We want to equip you with the resources and knowledge you need to find exactly what you want before, during and after this event.
 
As you become familiar with the basics, be sure to visit the WPC event agenda and prepare for the WPC Connect Scheduling tool, which launches in June.
 
​The Commons ​Find exciting opportunities for learning and networking.

The Commons is at the very core of the Worldwide Partner Conference experience and houses many of the sites you care about, including the Expo Hall, Connect Tables, Social Hub, Regional Lounges and Immersion Experiences.

​Expo Hall ​Explore the present and future of technology solutions from our various exhibitors and sponsors booths at the WPC Expo Hall.

This is your chance to find new solutions and business opportunities from a compelling array of partners, large and small.

​Connect Tables ​Take advantage of our dedicated networking space at one of our popular Connect Tables.

Reserve a table online with the WPC Connect Meeting Scheduler tool or simply walk up to the check-in desk to find the next available time slot. ​

​Social Hub ​Relax, recharge and experience social media as it intersects with the conference in real-time at the interactive Social Hub.

This is a fantastic place to learn how to build your business through digital marketing and connect with peers over drinks and entertainment.

​Regional Lounges ​Engage with fellow partners and company representatives from your geography.

At WPC 2015, we have a dedicated lounge for each of the 13 Microsoft regions. It’s your chance to feel closer to home and connect with those from your own area across the globe. Make the connections that grow your business.

​Cusomer Immersion Experience (CIE) ​Drop in to a CIE session – a facilitated, hands-on introduction to productivity solutions: being productive while mobile, using social networking to get work done, and connecting in real time with coworkers and customers.

Experience firsthand how Microsoft can solve your biggest business challenges in a real-world setting with a variety of devices and Microsoft solutions. ​

​Vision Keynote ​Hear from Satya Nadella, Kevin Turner and other senior Microsoft executives about the roadmap to business transformation and profitability in the coming year and beyond.

The vision keynotes take place on the mainstage from 9-11:30 am EST on Monday, July 13, and Wednesday, July 15, and live-streamed on the Microsoft Partner Network.

​General Sessions

(New this year)

​Get insight and vision around the challenges you are facing and how we can meet the needs of your customers together from senior Microsoft executives and other industry leaders.

The General Sessions are tailored to your business segment, product family and partner type and may set the stage for additional sessions related to a given topic, so be sure to plan your schedule accordingly.

​First Time Attendee (FTA) Program ​Don’t let being a new attendee slow you down. The FTA program is your guide to the events, community and business opportunities at the conference.

Maximize the value of your first WPC experiences with multiple program benefits, including a partner mentor, an on-site orientation session and a networking lunch. ​
