Microsoft's biggest event of the year is now just over one month away and we couldn't be more excited! Not only will we have a booth (#1132), but many of the partners that use our Dashworks software daily will also be there, as well as hopefully some new partners interested in combining their services with our products. Formerly known as the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, the show was renamed Microsoft Inspire to align with other flagship conferences, including Microsoft Build and Microsoft Ignite.
Microsoft Inspire is scheduled to run July 9 to July 13 in Washington, D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. As usual, current and future partners can look forward to connecting and also attending sessions and Vision Keynotes, which are slated to run from 8:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. on July 10-12. The keynotes that have been announced so far are those by Satya Nadella, Ron Huddleston, Judson Althoff, Gavriella Schuster, Toni Townes-Whitley, CVP, Public Sector and Industry; Kirk Koenigsbauer, CVP, Office Marketing, who will be presenting at the Verizon Center. Also, make sure you don't miss this year's Partner Celebration with Carrie Underwood on July 12 from 7 to 10.30pm at the Nationals park!
