The Worldwide Partner Conference 2013 in Houston, Texas is now only a few short weeks away. From July 7 to 11 we look forward to hosting more than 16,000 attendees from across the business, and from more than 150 countries around the globe. This year, we expect a record 20+ percent of attending partners to be from Microsoft Dynamics!

And we have some fantastic business content lined up for you . You can start by joining Neil Holloway, CVP Microsoft Business Solutions, as he shares the Microsoft vision for the future of business solutions, highlights first-hand stories of partner business success, and charts the path toward the business opportunities of tomorrow in the Microsoft Dynamics Value Keynote: "Seeing the future: a dynamic vision for business solutions". Then it's down to business with a full track of Microsoft Dynamics NAV content.

Get informed in the Microsoft Dynamics GP and SL: End-to-End Update session, with a comprehensive strategy, business and product update, great product demos of new and coming capabilities, and information on how you can operate a true volume business in the SMB space by offering the power of a comprehensive business solution from Microsoft.

Be inspired in the Microsoft Dynamics GP and SL: New opportunities to build your business session, where you can learn about the new opportunities you should consider as you look at your business planning for the next 12 months - including key topics such as the Web Client, Business Analyzer, RapidStart Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP, Windows Azure, and Office 365.

Then go deep on strategic business areas including How to sell Office 365 together with Microsoft Dynamics GP and SL and Heading into the Future with the Windows Azure Cloud. And each time you attend one of the sessions above, you have the chance to win fantastic prizes!

Great sessions, valuable content, but just a small part of what the Worldwide Partner Conference 2013 has to offer. More than 450 inspiring and informative sessions await, from vision keynotes with top leadership including Steve Ballmer, Kevin Turner, and Jon Roskill, to value keynotes, breakout sessions, and interactive sessions from all areas of the business. You can also come and say hello in the Microsoft Dynamics area of the EXPO in the extensive Commons area that forms the heart of the whole event.
