What is the best way to grow your network?
(No, the answer isn’t just attending more team happy hours.)
The single best way to grow your network is by providing your network with the experiences it needs to grow itself.
Think about it: as your partners improve their specialized skills and extend their own network, you naturally grow yours right along with them. The 2016 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) provides your team with the optimal environment to discover new opportunities, expand the reach of your own solutions, and leverage industry connections to get business done.

Connect, grow and save at WPC 2016

To help your team – and network – grow, we’re offering partners the chance to earn US$100 for each person you refer to register for WPC, for up to ten referrals. That’s up to US$1,000 in potential savings! But that’s not all—your referred colleagues will also receive US$100 off of the full registration price for a WPC 2016 all-access pass, which means they will only have to pay US$1,695.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Get rewarded for being an influencer in your community and share this opportunity with your network. This promotion is valid this week only and ends at 11:59pm PT January 22.
  2. Instruct your colleagues to register and when prompted, make sure they include the name and email you used (as their referrer) to register for WPC 2016.
  3. Join your friends and colleagues in Toronto July 10-14 for WPC 2016!
