Microsoft is excited to announce our participation as a Visionary Sponsor of The Partner Event 2012 taking place September 9-11 in Fargo, ND.
It’s a great opportunity for partners to get connected with partners and ISVs they work with to level set on how they can do business better together. The fall timing is also great because you’ve received inklings of Microsoft’s strategy coming off of WPC 2012. You get almost two months to digest that content, and you’re still in the first quarter of the fiscal year.
Having the event in Fargo also gives partners the opportunity to get connected with people on the Microsoft campus, and with the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift scheduled after The Partner Event this year, partners can leverage both events by sending multiple people to both conferences.
Personally, I like hearing the conversations that come from all sorts and sizes of partner organizations. In a discussion-oriented session, we get to hear real-life examples so we can go back and adjust things we’ve launched or take the next steps on something that we’ve been thinking about. I try to be a fly on the wall. I don’t want to shift the conversation, but it’s great to hear the commentary.
Jenny Davis from The Partner Channel shared this fabulous information below regarding the upcoming event. And being the lover of awesome Microsoft Dynamics related infographics, you definitely have to check this one out!
